The Confessional Presbyterian 10 (2014)

CPJ-10-mastheadThis issue is 272 pp (approx. 239,296 words). For the tenth issue of The Confessional Presbyterian Journal we feature Machen on the cover. This is another hard issue to pick favorites. The most feedback has been received on Dr. Willborn’s piece on “The Gospel Work of the Diaconate,” which paired with other pieces I know several sessions are using in deacon training. This issue saw the completion of the Sic et Non exchange over “Westminster Seminary California Distinctives?” Also, the lengthy piece on Thomas Rogers and Nicholas Bownd, while a niche study of Puritan Sabbatarianism and Elizabethan Puritanism, is significant for the discovery and transcription of an heretofore unnoticed letter the severe conformist wrote to the author of the first scholarly English Sabbatarian book, shedding additional light on the first Sabbatarian controversy in English literature. This issue remains in print.
