Landmark Baptist pastor's book debuts at ABA meeting

DR. GONNELLA DR. GONNELLA Bogard Press has published Landmarks of the Baptist Faith, a book authored by Dr. David E. Gonnella, pastor of the Landmark Baptist Church in Rockdale.

The book was debuted recently in Springfield, Missouri, at the national meeting of the American Baptist Association, a fellowship of 2000 churches in America. "The book enjoyed a brisk sale as many of the pastors and church members who were delegates at the meeting eagerly bought it," Dr. Gonnella said.

In his description of the book, Dr. Larry Clements, editor in chief of Bogard Press, writes, "The Landmarks Dr. Gonnella writes about in this volume are ancient and sure guides for biblical belief and practice in every generation. He begins with the landmark of salvation and security, and then drives the Baptist landmark deep into the ground by sharing great

truth about baptism, the Lord's supper and the origin and nature of true New Testament churches. He adequately deals with the subject of church suc- cession and

scriptural church government, then closes by challenging 21st Century Baptists to reset the ancient landmarks."

Dr. Gonnella also has four other books pending publication at Bogard Press and the West Florida Baptist Institute and Seminary Press. Landmarks of the Baptist Faith is available from Bogard Press in Texarkana, Texas.
