Gospel Advocate[edit]

The Gospel Advocate was founded by Nashville-area Restoration Movement preacher Tolbert Fanning in 1855.[1] William Lipscomb, who was a student of Fanning, served as co-editor until the American Civil War forced them to suspend publication in 1861.[1] After the end of the Civil War, publication resumed in 1866 under the editorship of Fanning and William Lipscomb's younger brother David Lipscomb; Fanning soon retired and David Lipscomb became the sole editor.[1]
