Bible Banner


The Bible Banner was a periodical run during the 1940's by Foy E. Wallace, Jr. and his brother, Cled. As stated on the cover of each issue, the magazine was "Devoted to the Defense of the Church Against All Errors and Innovations". The 40's were a difficult time, and they were a different time. People were not only more open to debates and discussion of differences, but they also spoke with "great plainness of speech".

Except for Jesus, the life, speech, and writings of no man should be emulated completely. All men make mistakes, even those who are trying to follow the perfect One. However, there are lessons to be learned from the wisdom, battles, and tragedies that befell those who preceded us.

Before Wallace started the Bible Banner, he published another paper beginning in the mid 1930's, called "The Gospel Guardian". After publishing the Bible Banner for a while, the old name was resurrected and the Bible Banner was renamed The Gospel Guardian.

A better introduction, "in their own words", is provided in this article, The Bible Banner - Past Present And Future, when the Bible Banner temporarily converted from a monthly paper to a quarterly.
