I hereby use my vast Admin powers to ask you all to read the below and seriously consider subscribing to the Confessional Presbyterian Journal. I've known Chris for a few years now and am honored to call him a friend. I know that the work he puts into this is not for money because, frankly, there's little to no money to be found in publishing good theology and this journal is packed full of it. Each issue seems to get more massive and is dense in Reformed theology. Some of the articles have been very formative in helping me understand and crystallize some key Reformed concepts on justification especially in light of recent controversies.

Please consider a subscription. Yes it helps out a good friend but, more importantly, I'm plugging it because this journal is good for us.

The 2009 issue of The Confessional Presbyterian journal is now at the printers and is scheduled to ship December 1st. For those who have subscribed; thank you; we hope to mail out issues soon after that. If you have not yet done so, subscribe or renew now for 2009 for only $18 ($25 Institutional/Foreign). The USA rate will rise to the normal retail price of $25 beginning January 1st.

This is the largest issue to date and contains a wealth of fine material, including articles on John Calvin, Redemptive-Historical preaching, the Sabbath, Pictures of Christ, and an extensive two part examination of the Westminster Assembly's view of the nature of any abiding validity of the judicial law. For more information on the contents and to renew see the journal website; or use the links below to purchase issues. Contents is also listed below.

For a limited time purchase volumes 1-4 (2005-2008) for the 50 % savings sale price of $50 and you will get the 2009 5th issue in addition for just $5! That is over 1,400 pages of material (over 2,600 pages if it were in a normal text book format). Due to the generosity of an underwriter we are able to offer this unbelievable price for a limited time. This offer good for USA individuals only. We can ship this set over seas at half the postage for an additional $21 for a limited time compliments of our generous underwriter (added at check out). All issues will ship as a set when volume 5 is available.

USA only: Purchase volumes 1-5 for $55 here.

USA only: Purchase volume 5 only for $18 here.

Overseas: Purchase vol. 5 for $25 here.

I was redirected here by your awesome powers. We have several of them and they do seem to be the product of a lot of good work (and speaking as someone who likes book with pictures, the illustrations are very nice).

Perhaps you can convince Chris to make it a pop-up book.

An OPC friend of mine recommended it! I don't get much time to read all the articles, but what I've read is good!

I am bursting with anticipation. I will order in 2-3 weeks.

Make sure you have towels near your monitor if you do, in fact, burst. Enthusiasm has a large burst radius I hear.


The last article from the last edition that I read was from a dugout canoe. Good stuff. I'll take my picture and email it to you for promo's sake ("look, this baptist guy even reads our presbyterian journal even in the boonies!").

I'm still waiting for a cartoon edition. Maybe Manga-style.

Oh, that already exists. I have the picture of Matthew Winzer with spiky hair and big round eyes as a poster on my wall.

Remember, some forms of extreme enthusiasm also leaves ceiling splatter. See the new forensics shows CSI- Enthusiasm Splatter Patttern Division.

Thanks for the plug, Rich. It has been a lot of fun to be on board with Chris, editing the reviews section. We have some absolutely fantastic book reviews coming in this year's edition. Of course, the main attractions are the good articles. I might especially point out the two-part article on the divines' assessment of the law, especially as it relates to the question of theonomy, and the proper interpretation of the phrase "general equity." I'm not sure there is a better collection of original source material available anywhere else on this question, and our own Matthew Winzer has done the analysis. Also, Chris and I find God's providence wonderful in allowing articles on both the images of Christ issue and the no recreation clause on the Sabbath. These, of course, are two very commonly taken exceptions to the Westminster Standards, probably the most commonly taken exceptions.

On the next pay period, which is next Friday, be prepared to send a copy to the big Texan in Houston. Am looking forward to it, and may even review it on my next podcast. Looks fantastic!

Thanks, William. Would you send a link to the podcast if and when you do it? We're always interested in what people are saying about the CPJ.

Thanks all and thanks for you who subscribed before the online store (all of the CPP stores actually) went out of commission this AM. Contact me directly if you want to order something; or if you got the promotional email use the direct links in that, which work. Meantime I have a shout out to Rich to fix the store shopping carts.

Thanks for your hard work Lane. This new issue does follow the pattern of each being better than the ones before; or at least larger!
