For a few issues of Gospel Gazette Online, we are honoring some of the longtime writers of our Internet journal by highlighting the articles of one of our dear Christian writers. This month, we commend to you brother Robert Johnson from Longview, Texas.

Robert was born and reared in Wynnewood, Oklahoma. While in college at Oklahoma Christian, he met and married the former Karen Janeway. Two children have blessed this union: Andrea and Phillip. They also have four grandchildren: Emily, Cadon, Jaxon and Rylon.

Robert received his BA degree from Oklahoma Christian in 1976 in Bible and Biblical Languages. He also received a Master’s Degree from the University of Oklahoma in 1991 in Reformation History.

Robert has preached for congregations in Louisiana, Oklahoma and Texas. He currently preaches for the Longview Church of Christ in Longview, Texas (in his 12th year of work there).

Robert writes for various brotherhood publications, including being a monthly contributor to the Gospel Gazette Online, an Internet magazine. He also contributed monthly to a series of articles published in the Daily Oklahoman, an Oklahoma City newspaper. Robert also speaks at various lectureships and meetings. His greatest joy, however, is in the local work of Gospel preaching and teaching.

[Editor’s Note: Brother Robert Johnson and I have never met other than through his excellent biblical lessons. (Incidentally, I do know and have met two other brothers in Christ who wear the moniker “Robert Johnson.”) ┬áThis brother Johnson is a useful tool in the hands of God, and we are fortunate that he sees fit to bless us with Bible lessons and encouragement arising out of his study of the Bible and his experience over many years as a preacher and teacher of the Gospel. ~ Louis Rushmore]

The December 2014 issue of Gospel Gazette Online is ready for your use. With this edition, Gospel Gazette Online concludes 16 years of uninterrupted, monthly publication. Besides new articles each month, thousands of articles may be located in the Archive. We look forward to beginning year 17 of GGO in January 2015.
