Scholar’s Corner

The Old Paths Archive, like most archives, has some material that is "still in boxes." We also have material that is not of presentation quality but might be of interest to researchers. This section of the Archive contains such material. Feel free to download it or consult it in place.

A brief description of each collection is given with a link to its folder. In some cases there are also sub-folders.

Gospel Herald Archive
This collection of back issues of the Gospel Herald contains a goldmine of information about the history of churches of Christ in Canada. It includes most issues from the founding of the paper in 1936 up to 2019. Brother Max Craddock submitted these files shortly before his death. There is a copyright notice on some of the earlier files that were taken from microfilm. An extensive search seems to indicate that this company no longer exists.

Modern Challenges to Christian Morals by Carl Spain

This is a copy of the landmark lecture dealing with racial prejudice among churches of Christ that Carl Spain gave at the Abilene Christian College Bible lectureship in 1960.
