“Again and again I have heard the lamented H. Leo Boles say that N.B. Hardeman is no ordinary man. By this he meant, of course, that Brother Hardeman is a man of superior ability. Thousands throughout the brotherhood share this sentiment.
Those who read this volume a hundred years from now will get the impression that N.B. Hardeman was a man of unusual talents and accomplishments. Both as a College President and as a Preacher of the Gospel he has been eminently
successful. One is amazed at the amount of work that he has done.
The influence of N.B. Hardeman for good is unexcelled
in churches of Christ through the English-speaking world. Through his teaching, his preaching, and his books he wields a tremendous power for truth and right.
This story of his life has been written by the two persons
best equipped to do it.”
