The book is out of print, but Br. Edwards has plenty of books on hand that he’s glad to sell for $12 plus shipping.
He can be reached by mail at —
2068 South Broadway Ave
Springfield MO 65807
or by phone at 417-882-2007. (Yes, I have his permission to give out the number. He’d enjoy a call from those who appreciate his work.)
Br. Edwards is retired and 91 years old. The cost of shipping varies with the number of books ordered — so order a lot and save money!
UPDATE: Br. Edwards passed away January 13, 2013. His passing received no mention in the Church of Christ press, but John’s book has been the largest influence in the Churches of Christ to take us away from a legalistic view of divorce and remarriage. He helped point us toward the true meaning of the teachings of Jesus and Paul within a gospel of grace, forgiveness, and reconciliation. He deserves to be remembered very well indeed.
My understanding is that his widow is still glad to accept book orders and enjoys calls from readers who wish to learn John’s teaching on divorce and remarriage.
SECOND UPDATE: Br. Edwards’ wife, I am told, predeceased him and his supply of books is exhausted or very nearly so.
If anyone knows how to reach his children, I would love to contact them regarding obtaining the rights to his book so it could continue to be made available.
