Pioneers in the Great Religious Reformation of the Nineteenth Century, an engraving from about 1907

I can’t decipher the first two-thirds of this wording at the bottom, but I can make out what appears to be ‘CHRISTIAN-EVANGELIST JANUARY 17, 1907.’  Great-grandad saved several of the full-color covers from Christian Standard (which paper occasionally had special covers for special numbers…I’ll try to photograph them and post here sometime) so it seems only natural he clipped and framed a cover for Christian-Evangelist from 1907, or 1897.  I no longer have access to bound volumes or loose issues of C-E, so cannot verify this.  In any case, here it is, copy, save and print it out.  Frame it, put it in your study.  Enjoy!

  1. It appears that what your great-grandfather preserved is a poster made from the cover of The Christian-Evangelist 44 no 3 (17 January 1907). Perhaps it was sold or handed out at the centennial celebration in 1909, which is what that issue promotes. Many portraits of Restoration “pioneers” are included in that issue, along with an engravings of a greeting written by Alexander Campbell on 11 January 1858, sermon notes of Barton W Stone, and two pages of a letter from Walter Scott.

    God’s Peace to you.
