“Forthright Press is delighted to release this collection of Stan Mitchell’s articles published in Forthright Magazine, in memory of his dedication to the Lord’s Kingdom and of his faithfulness in writing weekly to encourage and motivate our online readers.
We recommend not only his writings but his whole life as a man of God devoted to serving and sharing the meaning of Scripture. He was always concerned that we practice what was taught. He was a model of compassion and friendship.
Stan was an astute observer of humankind. He could see trends and perceive directions. Above all, he was committed to truth and to reconciliation.
Stan will be missed by his family and friends. His memory and legacy of faithfulness will live on in his good works and good words.” – J. Randal Matheny
