History of the Restoration Movement


Audio / Video Files

What would it have been like to listen to the preaching of Alexander Campbell or T. B. Larimore? To hear the message of the gospel in the presence of the great preachers of the distant past is something that will never be. However this page is an attempt to make available some recordings of preachers of yesteryear that were recorded. Most of these would have been from the mid to later part of the twentieth century. Other recording on this site will include audio lectures on the lives of different leaders of the Restoration Movement.
