Seventieth Anniversary Edition


A Bible Monthly 1945-48


Various Authors



Product Description:

This first edition came out in September 1945 shortly after the end of World War II. It resulted from the exercise of a number of brethren in South-West England who were burdened to meet the need among assemblies in the UK for a consistent ministry of the word through a well-balanced and Christ-centred magazine. Its stated purpose was that, on a monthly basis, articles of an evangelistic, expository and informative nature should be freely available to all. While the aim to publish monthly was never realized, the other three objectives most certainly were. Even today the magazine is characterized by these qualities: evangelistic; expository; informative. The seventieth anniversary is an appropriate time to reflect on the work, give God the glory for those observant men who first saw the need and responded to it in faith, courageously pushing on when there were so many limitations, and, dare it be said, some opposition from prominent brethren. As you read and meditate on these early articles you will appreciate that much has changed (see the Reports pages) yet much of benefit has been maintained to God's glory.
