Is Our Theology Vital?

From the city of The Angels the voice of Dr. James Daane has been emitting warning signals intermittently concerning the state of the Church. Dr. Daane does not hide his hopes and fears. They are of such a nature that he has no peace but must needs cry out, However, this watchman upon the walls of […]

A Re-formed Reformed Theology?

The Reformation is not an event but a movement. It is the dynamic of true progress in the Church of Jesus Christ. Reformation cannot be regarded as merely an achievement of the sixteenth century; it is a duty also in the twentieth century. The church may never regard her reformation as completed at any point in her history. This […]

We take much pleasure in reproducing the accompanying document, first issued et Wheaton, Illinois, in November of last year.

Many months ago the editors of this magazine invited me to contribute a regular (bi-monthly) column of theological comment. Now that the press of classroom duties has momentarily subsided, I am happy to comply with their request. The purpose of this column is to call attention to significant articles and events in the theological world which […]

Dr. B. Wentsel: Pastor, Theologian, Author, Apologist

Why write an article about a relatively unknown Dutch theologian in North American Reformed circles? Why choose Dr. Wentsel instead of a well-known Dutch theologian whose works are available in English? This year, 2007, the Christian Reformed Church in North America (CRC) is celebrating its founding year–1857. Ever since her beginning, she has been in […]
