The Confessional Presbyterian 1 (2005)

CPJ-1-masthead The inaugural issue of The Confessional Presbyterian Journal in 2005 was a bit more modest in size than some of the later issues. It was 184 (approx. 209,520 words). This issue is out of print. While it is more modest in size and perhaps more significant material appeared later, because this issue proved out all the design work that went into creating the journal, it remains a personal favorite. The “Reframing Presbyterian Worship” by Frank J. Smith and David C. Lachman is an important piece and it has been put online. To purchase other volumes see the online store
