The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) is a Protestant denominational body born on the frontier of the U.S. As such, it was shaped by that environment and ethos. The impact of the frontier ethos can be found in the many writings of Alexander Campbell, one of the founders of the Disciples. An examination of his prolific works makes it clear that the Disciples were able to develop a nineteenth‐century theology that did gain a great appeal among the Euro‐American frontier people. It was a theology in tune with the frontier values of democracy, separation of church and state, primitive Christianity, evangelism, Anglo‐Saxons as a chosen people, and the importance of freedom of ideas and beliefs.
