The eighth volume of The Confessional Presbyterian journal is well under way. We have tried to have mini themes in the past, but this year the issue will more largely follow a Princeton theme as this year marks the 200th anniversary of that seminary’s founding. I’m also pleased to announce that we have expanded the editorial staff by three. Nick Batzig and Jeff Waddington are joining Jim Cassidy and Nick Willborn in editing the articles section.

Nick Batzig is the organizing pastor of New Covenant Presbyterian Church (PCA), in Richmond Hill, Ga., a suburb of Savannah, Ga. Nick attended Greenville Presbyterian Theological Seminary, and is enrolled in the Th.M. program at Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary. Nick is pursuing a Th.M. in the subject of “The Third Use of the Law in the Reformed Confessions and Catechisms.” Prior to receiving the call to plant a church in Richmond Hill, Nick served as an intern at Tenth Presbyterian Church, in Philadelphia, and interim pastor of Christ the King PCA in Conshohocken, PA. He is married to his beautiful wife, Anna, and has three amazing sons, Micah, Elijah and Judah. Besides being a contributor to Feeding on Christ, Nick is also a regular panelist on Christ the Center and writes for several other blogs on the Reformed Forum. Nick has been a regular contributor to Tabletalk Magazine. Nick also has articles and reviews in The Scottish Bulletin of Evangelical Theology, Modern Reformation, and Reformation21. Nick’s 2009 (University of Glasgow/Yale University) lecture on “Edwards, Maclaurin and the Transatlantic Concert” was published in the 2011 Dunedin Press Jonathan Edwards and Scotland.

Jeff Waddington is an ordained minister in the Orthodox Presbyterian Church and currently serves as teacher of the congregation at Calvary Church of Amwell in Ringoes, NJ. Jeff received his MDiv degree from Westminster Theological Seminary in Philadelphia in 2000 and is a PhD candidate in historical and theological studies (apologetics) and is writing a dissertation on Jonathan Edwards’ theological anthropology and apologetic practice. Jeff is married to his lovely wife Ruth (since 14 July 1990) and has two daughters, Suzannah (a sophomore at Houghton College) and Carolynne (a high school freshman). Jeff serves as the secretary of the Reformed Forum and is a panelist on Christ the Center and a contributor to the Feeding on Christ website. Jeff has been a published writer since 1986, contributing articles and book reviews to such publications as the Westminster Theological Journal, Confessional Presbyterian, Modern Reformation, Themelios, and Reformation21. Jeff assisted William Edgar and K. Scott Oliphint with the editing of the two volume set Christian Apologetics: Past and Present. He has also contributed a chapter to the book Reforming or Conforming? Post-Conservative Evangelicals and the Emerging Church and contributed to and co-edited with Lane G. Tipton Resurrection and Eschatology: Theology in Service of the Church: Essays in Honor of Richard B. Gaffin, and has a chapter in a forthcoming festschrift for David Wells.

In addition, joining Lane Keister editing reviews (for 2013 D.V.), will be the Rev. Gabriel Fluhrer, who is the organizing pastor of Shiloh Presbyterian Church, a mission work of the Orthodox Presbyterian Church, in Raleigh, NC.
