Greetings from Hester Publications! It has been an exciting past two months for Hester Publications. In January we revised our catalog adding a new topical index to it. February brought the FHU lectureships and the unveiling of all the new books that Hester Publications has either put back into print or published for the first time in 2008. Our catalog contains a complete listing of our new books. You will find a pdf copy attached to this email. Be looking for new releases on the website www.hesterpublications.com under our new category called NEW PRODUCTS.
One reprint I want to call your attention to is:
The Voice of the Pioneers on Instrumental Music and Missionary Societies by John T. Lewis
"The following pages contain an answer to the challenge made by the secretary of the Tennessee Christian Missionary Society, sent forth to "our conservative brethren." This issue is clearly stated and the matter plainly put. With absolute accuracy brother John T. Lewis has gleaned the writings of the pioneers of the Reformation and has presented what they had to say on the questions of missionary work and instrumental music in worship... I most earnestly hope that every Christian, and especially every preacher of the Gospel of Christ, may carefully read and thoroughly digest the matter herein found. The truth demands that they be silenced along that line. The reading of this book will convince any honest soul that for a number of years after the great Reformation was begun the pioneers were a unit in opposing missionary societies and mechanical music in worship of God." --N.B. Hardeman President of Freed-Hardeman University 1925-50
