I regularly read D. G Harts blog Old Life, and he ocasionaly brings up John Williamson Nevin. I did some research on Nevin, and I've become pretty interested in his views on the Lords Supper. I'm considering ordering his book "The Mystical Presance" as well as D. G Harts biography of Nevin. I see that Nevin and Charles Hodge vigorously debated the issue. What were the main differences between...
I love my neighbors very much. I pray for them on a regular basis. I also despise false teaching and pray that my neighbors would escape from the clutches of people who would turn them into merchandise (2 Pet. 2:3). In light of this, I've come up with a series of questions to help me think through different conversations in which I may well find myself. I'd love to hear some responses.
Greetings. I used to be semi-involved in Facebook Reformed groups but having left that platform I've missed discussions with like-minded believers online. At present my wife and I are members of Heritage Reformed Baptist Church in North Canton, Ohio and I'm a student at Covenant Baptist Theological Seminary out of Owensboro, KY with a call-to-ministry from the elders of my church.

Is there much change in this edition compared with previous editions? I am happy with my 3rd edition but unsure if I should get the recent edition. Thanks.
I was raised by my grandfather, Dr. Jay Wimberly, a Reformed Baptist preacher in north and central Florida. So when I say that by the time I entered the Army I was living deceived by a prosperity gospel, it should come as a surprise to most.
However, when I deployed to Baghdad, Iraq in 2005, the false prosperity gospel quickly failed me when a roadside bomb killed five from my unit one month...
How does 1689 Federalism's understanding of Covenant Theology, which they admit is different than that of 'vanilla' Confessional Baptists, work it's way out in practice? How would a 1689 Federalist church operate/worship differently than say, Dr. Waldron's church, for example?
