About the Book
The most important thing to know besides the Scripture is the
life and work of New Testament Christians of the past. Dabney
Phillips’ Restoration Principles and Personalities is one of the
best small, one volume coverages of the life and work of those
who restored New Testament Christianity to the world. The book
is interesting and exciting.
Would you like to help a new convert or a young person to
increase his or her respect for the authority of Christ and for the
apostles? This book can help you to help them. Several congregations
have used the book in classes with good result. It is
being reprinted for this good purpose.
