Abstract

The Jackson Bible Universal Selected Gospel Songs A Review Garry Seabron The Jackson Bible Universal Selected Gospel Songs was the industrious effort of Elder H. C. Jackson, President and Dean of the Bible school he apparently founded, the Jackson Bible Universal Incorporated, located in New Albany, Mississippi. Intended to raise money for his Bible academy this song book was seemingly privately published by the school, for there is neither a publisher nor copyright date given. Evidently it was printed after 1940 , for in the prefatory matter of the volume we learn that Elder Jackson first came to Mississippi in 1940 to pastor two churches of the Church of God in Christ, one located in New Albany and the other in Aberdeen. More specifically, the collection may have been published during World War II, for one of the pieces, "There'll Be No Rationing in Glory" (by Prof. M .
