J. Caleb Clanton’s The Philosophy Of Religion of Alexander Campbell released by University of Tennessee Press

KNOXVILLE—The University of Tennessee Press and University of Alabama-Huntsville alumnus J. Caleb Clanton, PhD, are pleased to announce the release of The Philosophy of Religion of Alexander Campbell (University of Tennessee Press).

The Philosophy of Religion of Alexander Campbell reintroduces readers to Campbell as a philosopher of religion and explores the philosophical basis for his views underlying his religious movement. It begins with a highly readable discussion on Campbell’s role in antebellum American religion and proceeds to an exploration of his philosophical influences. J. Caleb Clanton then reconstructs, explains, and evaluates Campbell’s philosophy of religion. He critically examines Campbell’s unique, revealed-idea argument for the existence of God—that is. If God did not exist, we could not form the distinct idea of God.

J. Caleb Clanton is an associate professor of philosophy and University Research Professor at Lipscomb University in Nashville.
