    Went to see Jay P. Green Jr. today

    Jr's. Dad Jay P. Green Sr. Passed away May 20th 2008. In Memory of J. Green Sr. I lost contact with them a few years ago. I found Jay again in Mulberry, Indiana just southeast of Lafayette. I got up this morning and decided to take a trip and see how he has been doing.

    I got there and found that he had his Dad's library and many other gems on the shelf. While rummaging through the stuff I found a newer book by Beeke on 'Reformed Spirituality', a hardback of John Gills 'Cause of God and Truth', and something that I have been wanting, 'The Marrow of Modern Divinity in two Parts' published by Still Water Revival Books. The two parts are Pt. 1, the Covenant of Works & The Covenant of Grace and Pt. II is 'An Exposition of the Ten Commandments' by Edward Fisher with notes by Thomas Boston. It is a numbered collectors Edition, number 685 of 1100.

    Can someone tell me why this book was considered heterodox by some Presbyterians? I just recently ordered a copy of it from Westminster Bookstore. It hasn't arrived yet so I don't know the differences between them but I am anxious to dive into it. I recently downloaded Sinclair Ferguson's 3 part series on it. SermonAudio.com - Sermon Series Marrow of Modern Divinity I haven't had a chance to hear all three lectures. I have listened to the first one.

    Thanks guys,
    R.

    Re: Marrow Controversy
    I believe it has to do with hyper-calvinism and the free offer of the gospel.
    You've probably heard Ferguson's series from '04
    SermonAudio.com - Greenville Seminary & Mt. Olive
    or '07
    SermonAudio.com - Sermon Series Marrow of Modern Divinity
    Joel Beeke also did a series in '04 "The Erksine's and the Marrow Controversy"
    SermonAudio.com - Sermon Series Erskines & Marrow Controversy
    This is Phil Ryken's intro to the book
    The Marrow of Modern Divinity - Reformation21
    and PB's own Todd Pedlar did a blog post about it

    I would love to see Green's Modern KJV back in print.
    Psa 55:16 As for me, I will call upon God; and the LORD shall save me.
    Psa 55:17 Evening, and morning, and at noon, will I pray, and cry aloud: and he shall hear my voice.

    Jay still has them. You can still get them along with the Literal Version.

About us
The PuritanBoard exists to promote robust discussion of theology in a Confessionally Reformed context. The modern trend of short statements of faith belies the many places where the Scriptures teach with great clarity. Though our respective Reformed confessions sometimes disagree, we believe that Churches have been given the gifts of teachers and elders to lead to the unity of the faith and the result of that unity is a Confessional Church confessing together: "This is what the Scriptures teach." The Confessions are secondary to the authority of Scripture itself but they arise out of Scripture as a standard exposition of the Word of God.
