According to a recent survey, The Spiritual Sword is the second most widely read publication among churches of Christ.  

Published each quarter under the oversight of the elders of the Getwell congregation in Memphis, Tennessee and edited by Alan E. Highers, this paper literally goes around the world–throughout the United States and into every mission field.  

In continuing this work we endeavor to deal with themes of current interest and need and always to maintain a threefold emphasis:  balanced, conservative, and biblical.
