The Sword and Staff is a full-scale religious paper presenting the simple, nonsectarian message of God. Published by James Gibbons of Mt. Airy NC, this quarterly paper had been his lifework for over 50 years. The Sword and Staff had a mailing list of 20,000. James himself was a teacher-writer-poet-editor-publisher, yet this is what he had to say about himself... I identify myself simply as one of the Lord's "nobodies"; the Lord is everything!

James Gibbons passed away 4-10-2013. Since The Sword and Staff is no longer being printed, the family has created this website to make all of his printed material available for you to download and print. Experience the purity and simplicity of what he has to say about faith through the Word of God. You can visit James' previous website here.
