Gospel Guardian Tell-Al-Gram

HOLY SPIRIT SPECIAL TO BE REPRINTED! Our supply of the special edition of The Gospel Guardian on the Holy Spirit is exhausted. But we are reprinting it! So put your order in now. $20.00 per hundred. A review in Carolina Christian says of the special: "The Gospel Guardian combined three of its August numbers into a 48-page special on the Holy Spirit. As would be expected in the Gospel Guardian the articles are conservative in nature and sound forth the basic views of the leaders of the Restoration Movement since its inception. Yet most of them are a fresh and invigorating study of the subject. Anyone making a serious study of the Holy Spirit in conversion or in the life of a Christian should not overlook the valuable contribution made by this issue." (Volume 10, Number 10, October 1968, Howard Winters reviewing)

THE GOSPEL GUARDIAN CATALOGUE IS RECEIVING ENTHUSIASTIC RECEPTION: " Just received the very, very excellent catalogue. That is the best one yet. No one of our brethren have put out one that good. It is the best I have ever seen." Well, we don't quite agree with the good brother. Our catalogue is not that good. But we sure appreciate his enthusiasm, and his business...and we would be glad to have you have a catalogue? Another customer writes, "Your new 1969 catalogue is just wonderful". We are engaged in a program to upgrade every phase of the Gospel Guardian business...the book and literature service, bookkeeping, the weekly periodical...the whole thing. We would be happy to receive your suggestions and criticisms.

BOOK REVIEW: "Posture of Faith" by Gordon Wilson is a 13 lesson study in the field of "Evidences"--designed to strengthen faith. You can depend on the soundness of brother Wilson in the lessons in the book. "The Posture of Faith" is "a study of the conservative viewpoint on the Biblical fundamentals." A Gospel Guardian publication. Hardback $1.50. Paperback $1.00.

RICHARD A. PENTECOST, SR: 23101 Rein St. East Detroit, Michigan 48021. Phone 313-776-8004. "Churches needing a Gospel preacher for meeting work in 1969, may contact me at the address above. I am interested in churches that are unable to have meetings because of a financial situation. All that will be expected for support will be my expenses. Please contact me as soon as possible. I will travel to any part of the U. S. or Canada to preach the Gospel of Christ. For references you may contact the elders of the Expressway church of Christ, 4436 South Sixth St., Louisville, Kentucky 40214, or James P. Needham at the same address."

DARWIN CHANDLER: "After working with the Southside church of Christ in Brady, Texas for a very short time, I have accepted an invitation from the elders of the West Avenue church in San Antonio, Texas to work full-time with them in conjunction with Brother Leon Odom. The church in Brady is looking for a good man to move into the work here when I leave. Even though I have been here but a short while, I have learned that these brethren are good, sound, conscientious disciples. There has been no difficulty at any time, and the prospects for growth are good here. I can recommend this church to any gospel preacher who desires to work with a congregation which is at peace, and working together. The target date for my move to San Antonio is June 1, 1969. However, if the brethren here can find the man they want before then, they will move him at once, as I will be free to move before June 1, if they get another man. This is a worthy church brethren, and will be a good work. Correspondence may be addressed to me at 1922 S. Pine St., or to Joe Elliot, 2012 S. Walnut, or Walter Wilson, 1808 S. High, all in Brady, Texas."

PREACHER AVAILABLE: "If you don't mind, I would like for you to mention in your paper that I am looking for a congregation that needs a faithful preacher." Marshall Norman, 307 Cooper, Paris, Missouri, 65275.

TIP FOR TEACHERS: A newly revised "Training For Service" publication by Orrin Root is fine as a "Survey of The Bible". It is designed to help teachers and workers. It is a 26 lesson course made up in an attractive, colorful paper back binding. It is one of the most interesting survey studies I have seen. The student's manual sells for 95, teacher's manual $1.25. There are a few unsound expressions such as "ordinances of the church" in the book, but you will find the lesson course most interesting and beneficial. Order from the Guardian.

ROBERT HARKRIDER concludes his report from Australia, "The future of the Lord's work in Australia looks good. The beginnings are now small, but doors are being opened and growth is steady. Space does not permit me to tell of the work in Queensland of Harold Comer and Rolly McDowell, but their reports indicate much progress too." P. O. Box 52 Caringbah, N.S.W. 2229 Australia.

HAROLD COMER concludes his Australian report, "We have been away from the United States for 16 months now. I feel that our work has been richly blessed — blessed out of proportion to the labour we have put in. The prospects that are to be seen now are beyond what we dared hope for a year ago. Obviously, all of them will not materialize but the ones that do present a future with much promise. Surely all of us who are interested in Australia should give Him the thanks for this past year." P. O. Box 136, Bundaberg, Queensland, Australia 4670.

JIM R. EVERETT concludes his report from Australia, "...there is a great need for more sound preachers in Australia!" His address: P. O. Box 159, Miranda, NSW, 2228, Australia.
