Recent publications based on articles previously published in Scripture Truth

On 1st August 2017 we published a revised edition of “The Holy Spirit of God and The Great Adversary” by Algernon J Pollock, edited by John Rice. Part 1, on the Holy Spirit, is an elaboration of a series of articles which first appeared in 1929 in Scripture Truth. A Kindle edition is also available.

In keeping with a long tradition of publishing complete series of articles in book form, in August  2014 we re-published "Remembering my Creator since my youth" by David Anderson, first published as a series entitled "Creation" in Scripture Truth magazine between July 2009 and March 2014. The Kindle ebook edition will be published on 20 October 2014, but may be pre-ordered now.

In March 2014 we re-published "Concerning Himself" by J T Mawson, first published as a series entitled "Things Most Surely Believed" in Scripture Truth magazine, Volumes 26-27 (1934-35), and published, with an additional article from Volume 28 (1936), in book form in 1936 by the Central Bible Truth Depot. For the first time, the Kindle edition was available in advance of the print edition.

 In December 2013 we re-published "Thou Remainest" by J Wilson Smith, a compilation of articles on the excellency and sufficiency of the Lord Jesus Christ first published in Scripture Truth between 1909 and 1919, and published in book form in 1920 by the Central Bible Truth Depot. It is also available in a Kindle edition.

In August 2013 we published "Isaiah" (available as an Amazon Kindle e-book) by F B Hole, from the series of articles entitled "Bible Study — Isaiah" published between 1956 and 1958. In tandem with the print edition, we have also published a Kindle edition.

In February 2011 we re-published "Waiting for the Coming" (available as a Google Play e-book) by J T Mawson, the founding editor of Scripture Truth magazine, first published in 1936, which is primarily a revision and reprint of a series entitled "The Coming Again of the Lord Jesus" in Scripture Truth magazine, Volume 25, 1933 and the article "He that shall come, will come" in Volume 26, 1934, together with some additional material.

During 2008 we re-printed in paperback "Short Papers on the Church" (available as a Google Play e-book) by Hamilton Smith, first published in book form in 1925, based on a series of articles which appeared in "Scripture Truth" in 1922. Also, the series of articles by Ted Murray entitled "A Look at Nehemiah for Today", which appeared between 2004 and 2008, have been reprinted in paperback as "Lessons from Nehemiah" (available as a Google Play e-book), complementing the reprint of his earlier series "Lessons from Ezra" (available as a Google Play e-book).

Readers of Scripture Truth may also be interested in the hardback or paperback edition of "The Gospel In Job" (available as a Google Play e-book) by Yannick Ford, which was serialised in Scripture Truth between 2004 and 2006.

Scripture Truth Magazine

"Scripture Truth" has been published since 1909, when, under the editorship of J T Mawson and H D R Jameson, articles were scrutinised by a committee of responsible men amongst the Brethren: H J Vine, J T Mawson, H P Barker, F B Hole, H R Jameson, Mr Huntley, J Murray, Capt J W Smith, Hamilton Smith, Mr Bell, R Dunn, Robert Whyte and Walter Westcott. Indeed, much of the content of the early issues was written by them. In more recent years the magazine has been edited, solely or as part of an editorial board, by John Blackburn, Theo Balderston, Colin Curry, Bos Menzies Jeffrey Brett and Gordon Hughes.
