Two issues are in Mennonite Historical Library (Goshen, Indiana, USA) (January and February 1901); the further history is unknown.

Meyer on 1 Corinthians 9:27; the second contained a sermon on Romans 6:23 by Elder David Dürksen and one by C. H. Spurgeon. The agent for America was John F. Harms of Medford, Oklahoma. Twenty sermons were collected and published in one volume entitled Zeugnisse von Christo.
