Presented during the 16th Annual SCJ Conference held at Johnson University in Knoxville, Tennessee April 7-8, 2017, the award recognizes Dr. Matson's unique contribution to the Stone-Campbell movement.
The Stone-Campbell Journal has been published semi-annually since 1998 and is the only academic journal principally connected to the “independent” Christian Churches and Churches of Christ (though it reaches out to and includes all three branches of the Stone-Campbell or “Restoration” movement, including the Disciples of Christ and the Churches of Christ).
Other outstanding articles were recognized in the area of New Testament, Old Testament, and Theology-Culture, commemorating the twentieth anniversary of the journal’s existence.
Over the twenty year history of the SCJ, Dr. Matson has contributed several articles and book reviews. The article which won him this award, "Who wrote the Lunenburg letter?: the untold story of the 'conscientious sister' of Lunenburg" was published in 2008.
