A History of the Restoration Movement in Randolph County, Arkansas More than 40 congregations and 150 preachers from the northwest Arkansas area are described in this 455-page hardback book compiled by the late Dr. Michael Wilson, church historian and dedicated student of history. Churches established in more recent times have been built upon the foundations of those brave Christian men and women who came before and remained. Is is on their shoulders that today's Christians now stand and assist others to climb higher and go further. Wilson sought to continue the work begun by Boyd E. Morgan in his popular book, "Arkansas Angels." "Arkansas Christians" is the culmination of this effort.
