Better Late Than Never: NTJ 13.3 is Available

It doesn’t look like much but the NTJ packs a verbal punch. Published by the Old Life Theological Society and edited by the redoubtable D. G. Hart and John Muether the Nicotine Theological Journal is “dedicated to recovering the connection between Reformed faith and practice.” This is a quest that is near and dear to the HB and, as they say, you don’t have to smoke to get it.

The latest issue features a series of brief essays from three ministers writing to their denominations (OPC, URCNA, PCA) in voce Calvini. There is a brief summary by Heidelblogger Gregory Baus of the case against the myth of Calvin having played at lawn bowling on the Sabbath, and the usual entries fro 39 Alexander Hall and Second Hand Smoke.

We need resources and friends like the NTJ more now than ever before. A subscription (or five) to the NTJ would be a great way to begin recovering the Reformed confession for 2010.

  1. The current NTJ is terrific. It was fun to see the term “papists” used in the 21st century by the URC voce Calvini. I’m trying to incorporate it more into my vocabulary, but my mother-in-law doesn’t like it so much.
