This is a monumental year for the Gospel Advocate – we turn 160 in July. When David Lipscomb and Tolbert Fanning were co-editors in 1866, the subscription price was $2 a year. Money was hard to come by during that time, and the magazine was in danger of folding. Lipscomb pleaded with the brethren to help get 500 additional subscriptions to break even. By October 1868 the magazine became self-sustaining.
As we enter this 160th year of publication, which includes social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter, we need your help again. Help us spread the word about Gospel Advocate. In honor of our 160th anniversary, help us get 1,600 “likes” on Facebook by July 1. Ask your friends and family to check us out. Fanning & Lipscomb would appreciate it; so will we.
