Buy The Truth and Sell It Not (The Life of E. Gaston Collins)


GastonCollinsSeveral of our   "old-time"   readers in the  Southern  Indiana and  Louisville area   might  remember the  name  E. Gaston Collins (1890-1970).  He  preached at  Borden Church of Christ from  1952-1957.  His  grandson, Frank N. Cook of Lewisburg, TN  has  written an  excellent biography  of Bro. Collins.

Last  year Bro. Cook contacted  me (Larry Miles)  asking  permission to  use some material from  Word and Work. Of course  we  gave  him permission as  Word and Work was  never  copyrighted. He  and  I have  talked on phone a  few  times  over the last  year and via  e-mail and  FaceBook.

I   wholeheartedly  recommend the  book. He  has   done a  wonderful  job of telling   his  grandfather's  life.  The  book contains  216  pages, has  over  100  photographs, and some  excellent endnotes for each  chapter and  is  a very  easy read. Here is a   copy of the  Press release  sent out  by Bro. Cook and  his publisher.


Buy the Truth and Sell it Not
Truth is always a scarce commodity. Sometimes it's controversial or even revolutionary. Unclouded Press announces the release of Buy the Truth and Sell it Not: The Life of E. Gaston Collins, by Frank N. Cook.  This is the story of how the love of truth led a young man from Franklin County, Tennessee through 12 states, 3 provinces, and 2 spiritual battles. 
Gaston Collins (1890-1970) came from a time and place shaped by the pioneer spirit of David Crockett and the Godly spirit of David Lipscomb. The greatest influence on his life though, was the Word of God. He wanted to know it, to live it, and to share it with as many as possible. We can gain insights into how we should live by seeing how Gaston dealt with being in the world without being of the world, and by how he dealt with religious controversies. 
Buy the Truth and Sell it Not: The Life of E. Gaston Collins marks the debut of Frank N. Cook as an author and Unclouded Press as a publisher. The publishers website is   https://sites.google.com/site/uncloudedpress/gaston-collins

The  book is  available both  in  Hard-Back ($23.36) ,  Paperback ($12.99) , and in Kindle  format ($2.99).  Please not that the   Kindle Version  does  not  have the  photographs and the  appendixes.

That is why, for Christ's sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
