I was working a little bit on my long-term project of the history of the RPCNA psalter and found something I thought was fascinating.
In 1882 the RPCNA synod appointed a committee to revise the 1650 Psalter with some verbal corrections and suitable music. This was completed in 1899. The goal...
Came across an article this morning:
A brother in Christ was executed by Islamic extremists. Before being executed the murderer said something that stuck out to me.
From the article:
"This is one of the...
If anybody is interested I am working on a timeline type of overview of God's kingdom and how He exercised His authority over it.
I would love any comments you might have.
At Babel God divided the nations and placed them under the wicked sons of God. These are spiritual rulers...
Your opinions on the following quote would be appreciated:
"...The fundamental ideas undergirding a doctrine of historical progress are these: (1) a sovereign predestinating agent who (or impersonal force that) guarantees the linearity of history (anticyclicalism); (2) cultural and social...

Eschatology in the Bible Presbyterian Church, by Dr. John Battle
The linked document is a history of the development of Eschatology in the Bible Presbyterian Church - not an argument for a particular position. When I first began attending a Bible Presbyterian Church some four plus years ago I...
I've been curious as to the history of the RPCNA psalters. My current understanding is that there was originally a minor revision to the SMV along with some additional versions that were published in a split-leaf in 1889, this was revised more thoroughly in 1911, and then minor changes to music...
I just finished Europe from its Origins, a 25-hour video podcast (iTunes, free) that culminates in the terrible siege of Constantinople by the Turks. I am stunned. Anyone who thinks history is dry stuff is either ignorant or heartless. History is the study of another's present, full of events as...
This may seem like a dumb question, but what exactly does the term "reformed" mean? It seems the exact use of and application of the word in regards to an individual, church or denomination has become rather subjective and gets thrown around a lot. For instance, I hear it said from time to...
I'm in the process of putting together a sourcebook (online and hard copies for my flock) of the most important theological documents in the early Particular Baptist movement. And, why don't we say all the way up through Spurgeon. I don't mean the kind of Baptist Heritage Sourcebook that...

From my understanding it we a joint movement against the Higher Critics by the evangelicals who asserted the original five fundamentals.
Any recommended books?
