Welcome to the Archives for Expository Files!
Expository Files was a monthly electronic journal, edited by Warren E. Berkley & Jon W. Quinn, dedicated to the faithful exposition of Scripture. Our journal's history began in 1994 and came to its conclusion in 2016. Our writers sought to present helpful truths on selected Bible texts. Each one believes that all Scripture is inspired by God. Though most of the writing is expository in nature, some articles deal with special issues and topics. We invite you to download as many as you wish.
Below is the introductory page to the first issue which explains our goals as we launched our effort in 1994. Some of the terms are electronically obsolete, but that is the nature of the "World Wide Web"!
Welcome to a unique publishing adventure, EXPOSITORY FILES. This electronic magazine will be
compiled monthly by Warren E. Berkley (McAllen, Texas), and Jon W. Quinn
(Bradley, Ill.). Our intent is to upload articles with emphasis on the
exposition of Scripture. Four or five articles will appear in each issue.
Journalistic efforts often evolve in content and material, depending upon the
needs of the time. But this is a our starting point. We want to offer articles
which are simple, true to the Scriptures, and easy to read.
The writers are members and preachers of churches of Christ all across the country. We share a common concern, that Biblical instruction should be followed. We believe, in every dispensation there is the urgent need to follow whatever instructions we have from God. Today, we have the New Testament.
Each issue will be numbered in computer style, 1.1, 1.2, etc. This first issue (Jan., '94) is 1.1 for example; the last issue of this year will be 1.12, etc.
We are not entering into this project to make money, raise money or to compete with print media. Both editors write for other print publications. Our motive is to provide Biblical teaching for on-line computer users.
Feel free to upload EXPOSITORY FILES into local BBS networks. And, if you want your friends and associates to have a copy, regard this as freeware; load it onto a disk and pass it on.
"And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified." (Acts 20:32, KJV).
