The mid-1800s saw an incredible amount of books written by members of the Lord’s church, but unfortunately most of them are nearly impossible to find (or so expensive that only Donald Trump could afford them all).
But, we here at The Cobb Six, being caretakers of the Jimmie Beller Memorial eLibrary, are trying to make these books more accessible to you and others like you.
Take today’s addition to the eLibrary, for example. It does double-duty as a book on hermeneutics (the science of Bible interpretation) and an introduction to the Bible; and does it well.
Tolbert Fanning was the president of Franklin College, which he established in 1837, and was the first editor of Gospel Advocate. His legacy also includes mentoring men like David Lipscomb.
So, without further talking, we present to you the newest entry in the Jimmie Beller Memorial eLibrary:
As always, the book has been completely re-done. We’ve checked for typos, removed literally hundreds of commas (he really liked using commas), changed the font style, and gave it a good freshening up. We hope you find it worthwhile. Just click the link above to download it!
