Our Recent Silence Explained

Perhaps you’ve noticed (and then again, perhaps you haven’t), but we’ve not posted any new articles for the past several weeks.

Today’s post is to let you know why, and to give you an idea of what to expect from us in the new year.

First, I’ve been doing a lot of editorial work for brethren, preparing several new books for publication.  That includes a book on why one man left Catholicism, a book of sermons, and even a sci-fi novel which helps to teach truths about God.

Second, I’ve taken on a second job (well, I guess it’s more of a third or fourth job), loading trucks early in the mornings for UPS.  Needless to say, it has messed with my schedule a bit, but it has also proven to be a place with opportunities to evangelize.  One man I work with is an agnostic, but he is very excited to read the Bales-Teller Debate on the Existence of God which I gave him.  Another man is religiously minded, but unsure of salvation.  He’s presently reading Muscle and a Shovel.

Third, I’ve been working hard on the next issue of the Quarterly, trying to get it ready for publication.  It should be shipping around the middle of January.

So, there’s my excuses.  🙂

So what can you expect from us in the new year?

Our goal as of this moment is to have at least one new article each week (not counting any updates or announcements).

  • Historical research articles on Restoration Movement personalities (some of which you may never have heard of).
  • Continuing the popular sermon commentary series on Mark from last year.
  • Finishing the series on the apostles (which have been used as Bible class material and sermons by people in four different states that I know of).
  • More “Did You Know?” articles.
  • A series of articles on various aspects of elders.
  • Lessons on the Lord’s Supper.
  • and more!

So, stick with us as we bring you sound and interesting articles for your enjoyment, edification, and encouragement!

Happy New Year!

News and Updates

First and foremost, we want to say a great big humongous THANK YOU to all of our readers.  This past week was amazing, and it’s thanks to you!

Twelve days ago, we set a new record for our site.  The sermon on Hell was shared on Facebook 35 times, which was the most of anything we’ve ever posted.  I realize that for some websites, that’s a disappointing number, but we’re still growing.

But that didn’t even come close to preparing us for the response to this past Friday’s article on the “thousand year reign of Jesus on earth.”  As of Sunday evening, it had been shared 124 times!  That’s more than three  times the record-setting mark from the week before.

I realize that this information might seem meaningless to you, but it is something that excited us.  We are humbled that so many of you found that article helpful and worth sharing.  So, all of this is to say this:

Thank you.

We’ve also got a lot of new readers the past couple weeks (probably due to those two articles), and we’d like to take a moment to tell you about the other good things you’ll find on our website.

Bible Q&A

Our Friday Bible Q&A articles seem to be people’s favorites.  We try to answer each question sent our way in a logical, easy-to-understand way, but most importantly in a biblical way.  All of our Bible Q&A articles can be read here (or by clicking “Bible Q&A” at the top of our website).

Cobb Publishing

In addition to writing articles, we also produce a lot of books.  We’ve got books about the Restoration Movement, debate books, sermon collections, as well as our own line of in-depth but easy-to-understand commentaries.  These books are available in paperback and eBook format (and if you use Kindle, they’re all available at Amazon.com too).  Click on “shop” at the top of the page to see everything we’ve got available.

We’ve got a few projects currently in production that we hope will be worth the wait, The Holy Spirit in the Book of Acts, Alexander Campbell: A Collection (Volume 2), as well as others.

The Cobb Kids Audio Show

If you like to smile, then check out the Cobb Kids Audio Show.  Our four kids (and some other relatives) had put together several episodes of their own home-made “old time radio show.”  Complete with sound effects, laugh tracks, and (sort of) commercials, these shows are guaranteed to make you smile.

The Book of Revelation

Over a thousand hours of work went into putting together this collection of 48 sermons covering the entire book of Revelation.  The first three lessons, which introduce the study, can be downloaded from our Revelation page.  After reading them, if you want, you can purchase the entire collection (with powerpoints and handouts) for less than $10.  In fact, until the end of the month, it’s only $5.00.

Bible Study Helps

If you use e-Sword, then you’ll want to check out our exclusive e-Sword files.  And if you want more, go to the Gravel Hill church of Christ website (which we also take care of).

And there’s plenty more.  Just take a few minutes and look around!

Thank you once more.  We truly appreciate you.
