The Confessional Presbyterian 9 (2013)

CPJ-9-mastheadIn the ninth issue of The Confessional Presbyterian Journal we finally give Thornwell his due. The editorial view was that the stand out piece is Jeong Koo Jeon’s The Covenant of Creation and the Kingdom of God. The translation piece to go with the topic of Thornwell, is a new translation of Franciscus Gomarus on Roman Catholic Baptism. This issue remains in print.
