It Finally Arrived!

Living Principlies: Gleanings from Unnamed and Named Bible Characters

Finally, it arrived! After nearly four years of research, writing and interruptions by other good works, Bonnie’s first book arrived along with several other titles. The tractor-trailer at the front door of the World Evangelism Building in Winona, MS on Wednesday, March 2 brought 6,800 pounds of newly printed books on six pallets. On hand to unload and put away this bumper crop of Christian literature were Paula and Jerry Bates, Betty Choate, Clayton Malone, Bonnie and me. Just one more day of tons of literature in and tons of literature out!

Living Principles: Gleanings from Unnamed and Named Bible Characters is a Bible character study of women, some good – some not so much, and about half of the names of the characters in Bonnie’s class study book do not appear on the pages of inspiration. Her book is a good example of the difference between Bible reading and Bible study; otherwise, what could one know of Mrs. Noah, Mrs. Job, Mrs. Potiphar, Mrs. Jeroboam and Mrs. Peter? Furthermore, paramount in this study guide is application to the lives we now live; Living Principles is more than informational, it is instructive, too.

Unwrapping Christmas in March?Two of the pallets arriving Wednesday were The Voice of Truth International magazine Volume 67. The Voice of Truth International goes into about 80 countries and contains short teaching articles. Bonnie does the layout for VOTI (one of the good interruptions that delayed the completion of her book); I am one of the Editors and chief proofreader. Two additional books arrived: The Destruction of Faith by Kenneth Morvant and Mission Training Manual by Wayne Barrier. The latter book is the best of its kind with which I am familiar, and it is the embodiment of practical application in world missions. Bonnie and I with several others collaborated in the exercise of its contents in ongoing, mobile schools of missions, hosted by congregations.

Living Principles book hot off the press!These titles plus hundreds of additional books and tracts can be viewed online at Similar to The Voice of Truth International, our Internet journal Gospel Gazette Online, now in its 13th year of operation, can be viewed at A third publication, Global Harvest, chronicles world missions sponsored by numerous churches of Christ; whereas VOTI is a quarterly and GGO is a monthly, GH is published twice annually. VOTI and GH are by paid subscription, though samples are freely available stateside; GGO is free to the user.
