Welcome to the website for The Confessional Presbyterian, a journal for discussion of Presbyterian doctrine & practice. See our About page for background on the purpose and scope of the journal. The journal is now in its 15th year. The 2018 14th issue has shipped to subscribers and may be purchased in the store and there are special offers as well. We are accepting submissions and proposals for volume 15 for 2019 (G. Voetius) and 2020 (Ussher), for which see more information below.
We are also planning several issues out to allow a greater amount of lead time if writers are interested in writing on particular subjects and wish to target a future issue. The current plan for cover themes currently on our artist’s work board are as follows (issues are not fully themed but the cover art provides a theme for some of the articles and may be helpful to writers in formulating related topics; but in general submissions may be on any topic).
2019. Gisbertus Voetius (1589–1676). This and the 2020 issue provide opportunity to address parallels, commonalities, roots, etc. which Presbyterianism shares with the Dutch Reformed and Nadere Reformatie and Puritan Anglicanism.
Other cover subjects we plan to have at some point but in no certain order include: Charles Hodge, William Farel, Jonathan Edwards, Robert L. Dabney. Please contact the editors if you have an interest in writing and submitting for any of these future issues planned. See our submissions page for style and other questions of form.
