Campbell John Mc Leod

Campbell, John McLeod, divine, was born at Kilninver, Argyllshire, in 1800. Brought up for the Church, he was licensed in 1821 and received a charge in 1825. In 1831 he was deposed on the ground of heresy, holding views of his own on the Atonement and cognate theological subjects. From 1833 to 1859 he preached to a body of followers that gathered round him in Glasgow, publishing in 1851 Christ the Bread of Life, in 1856 The Nature of the Atonement, and in 1862 Thoughts on Revelation, most highly valued books in the theological world. In 1868 he received the degree of D.D. from Glasgow University, and in 1871 was presented with a testimonial and address by representatives of most of the religious sects in Scotland. He died in 1872 at Roseneath, where he was living in retirement and occupied on Reminiscences and Reflections, which was completed and published by his son, the Rev. Donald Campbell, in 1873.
