Recent publications based on articles previously published in Scripture Truth
On 30 June 2021 Rebuilding Zion: An Exposition of the Books of the Exile we brought back into print a brand new edition of the classic book by F B Hole (1874-1964). In articles first published in Scripture Truth Volume 40 (1959-1961) he expounds the Old Testament books of the Exile: Daniel, Ezra, Nehemiah, Haggai, Zechariah and Malachi, considers their prophecies concerning Jesus Christ and God’s past and future plans for Israel, and forcefully presents the very relevant message they have for Christians today.
On 23rd May 2020 we published “Canaan Possessed: Studies in Ephesians and Joshua"” by John Blackburn, who was editor of Scripture Truth from 1962-1979 and co-editor from 1980-1984.

A Kindle edition is also available.

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.
