Gospel Advocate Obituary

Some seventy-one years ago John T. Hinds was born. This was during the troubled reconstruction period following the Civil War. Under the most adverse circumstances and by the dint of hard labor and sacrifice he obtained an education far in advance of most of his generation. He was a product of the College of the Bible, Lexington, Ky., a pupil of J. W. McGarvey. In Bible knowledge and understanding Brother Hinds had few equals and no superiors. Among his widelyread writings are: "Christ on David's Throne," an unanswerable tract, and "Instrumental Music in the Worship." His last work, a commentary on the book of Revelation, is an outstanding work in scholarship and accuracy. Brother Hinds was a real friend to the writer and to the Bentonville congregation. When gloom was deepest and the burden heaviest with me, the calm, safe counsel of Brother Hinds came to soothe and give renewed courage. His friendship was not limited to advice. With the exception of Sister Johnson, of Fort Worth, Texas, Brother Hinds gave the largest contribution of any individual to the building of a church home here. Sister Hinds and children have our deepest sympathy in their loss. Brother Hinds laid down a full and useful life for the Lord to take up a more full and complete one with him. -George B. Curtis., Bentonville, Ark., Gospel Advocate, March 31, 1938, page 310.
