What's a "Conservative Gospel Preacher"?


Isn't the Bible the Bible?

What's a "Conservative Gospel Preacher"? = as opposed to liberal (critical) belief on the scriptures.  It means what is says.  It sounds corny or redundant now but back then it was appropriate.  mid 1800s and esp. around the turn of the 20th century liberal (critical) belief on the scriptures became adopted.

this is fabulous

Thank you.

Was the file updated 2/2019 or the web page?

Thank you.

Was the file updated 2/2019 or the web page?

Just the web page was updated.  Unfortunately, like a dummy I forgot to save a copy of my rtf source file(s) for 

the Zerr Commentary, so I cannot update or add to it without starting from scratch.  My system crashed and see

no need to redo the entire commentary.   Instead, I am Starting with Genesis and Exodus by Zerr and have already

started on Zerr's for Leviticus and Numbers.  Will probably add to this new file until get to the Major Prophets.

Eventually, I may continue to complete the Old Testament thru Malachi, but will take a while.  If you want to access

the rest of Zerr's Commentary beyond the Zerr combined Commentary, click on the link for the Genesis and Exodus

Commentary.   This week I will start working on the Chapter Notes for Leviticus and Numbers, then the Verse Notes.


Thanks for asking about the commentary.  If I ever have the time i will redo the commentary to include all 66 books.


If you'd like to check out all of Zerr's in PDF format you may download the entire commentary from my old sit at this

address:   http://djmarko53.wix...com/churchbooks

My understanding is that all Gospel Advocate materials (particularly the commentaries) are still under copyright to GA. How are you able to put them in this form?  Just asking. :-)

It is my understanding that the GA did not renew the copyright.

I have a preacher friend in Florida (Dr. Barry Jones) who runs

a Restoration Movement website.  He distributes some of the

Gospel Advocate Commentaries (James by Guy N. Woods, for one)

for a very nominal charge.   According to the restorationlibrary.org

website (blog) these are not under copyright.  I'm sure that the 

software they market in Wordsearch format, and which contains

the Gospel Advocate commentaries, may be copyrighted as far

as the format.  Wordsearch sells them for as low as $49 in electronic

book format.


I believe I recall Bradley Cobb on this website stating that these are

not under copyright.At least the ones by Lipscomb.  Some of these commentaries

are nearly 100 years old.  From what I have been told by others, the David Lipscomb

Commentaries which make up some of the GA Commentaries are not under copyright. 

In fact, Bradley Cobb has posted David Lipscomb's commentaries on this website.  All

I did with them was include them after reformatting the Text and Text size to

make it more presentable.


I will do some more research on this matter, I do know of two Restoration Websites,

restorationlibrary.org  and restorationdigitallibrary.com, which is maintained by

Dr. Barry Jones in Pensacola FL.  I have a website that I no longer maintain.  It has

a few of the older commentaries online.  However, they were obtained from these

two websites.  I have found portions of several of these commentaries on websites

by members of the church of christ.  Most i don't know.  All I know is what I have

been told.

Also, the restorationdigitallibrary.com website has a Facebook Page as well.

I have Dr. Barry Jones, phone number and will call him about that...
