  1. I thank God for the Heideblog. I am an old lady who is nearing the end of her race. Only in the last year did I get on the Internet and soon afterward discovered the Heidelblog. I am astonished at what I have learned from this resource since then. The dedication of all those involved in producing and supporting this ministry is astonishing, and provides a tremendous wealth of information to Reformed Christians and anyone who wants to know about the authentic, confessional Reformed faith. Younger Christians, I hope you will take full advantage of this resource, which was not available until recently. Meanwhile I am very busy learning from the wealth of information provided in past episodes, on every conceivable topic that has a bearing on the Reformed faith. Thank you!

  2. I am a fairly new reader of the Heidelblog and am extremely thankful for it. Thank you Dr. Clark, and to all who put in so much time and effort into this wonderful resource. I have benefitted greatly from this site. Keep up the good work, and may God richly Bless you in this New Year.
