Texas Christian Reformer

Diana J. Kleiner General

The Texas Christian Reformer, a Church of Christ journal, was first published in 1872 in Lockhart, Texas, at the office of W. K. Foster and edited by J. I. Byches. Several papers carried prospectuses for the publication, but only a few issues ever appeared, and no copy could be found in Texas newspaper collections in the 1990s.
