Southwestern Centennial Classics; B. H. Carroll, L. R. Scarborough, T. B. Maston...

The Centennial Classics are a set of books reprinted in commemoration of the 100th anniversary of Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, Fort Worth, Texas (SWBTS; All of these books were written by presidents and professors of SWBTS.

The Southwestern Library of Centennial Classics are:

B. H. Carroll's book was influential in the SBC Conservative Resurgence.  Scarborough's book, With Christ After the Lost, was for many years an evangelism textbook, and influenced many Baptists for evangelism. 

Purchase them for yourself and your church library. They also make a great gift for your pastor or for a young preacher. Give him the entire set, or just give him one book a year for Christmas; there, you have your gifts taken care of for the next decade :-).

Original cost was $100. Now they can be purchased for $60 plus $6.50 postage.

This entire set of Centennial Classics can be ordered from SWBTS, P. O. Box 22500, Fort Worth, Texas 76122.

That’s ten hardcover books for just $6 each. I have the set of books and highly recommend them.
