Volume One Nearing Completion

Posted on 18th November, by W. Bradford Littlejohn in The Study Series, Volume 1. Comments Off on Volume One Nearing Completion

The manuscript for Volume One of the Mercersburg Theology Study Series is nearing completion.  This volume, edited by Rev. Dr. Linden DeBie, contains the most famous work of the Mercersburg movement, John Nevin’s The Mystical Presence, together with his brilliant follow-up essay, “The Doctrine of the Reformed Church on the Lord’s Supper.”  After nearly a year of intensive work, the manuscript has now been sent off to Dr. Mark Noll of the University of Notre Dame, who will be providing a foreword for the volume.  Soon it will be undergoing final revisions at the hands of our copy-editor, and then it’s off to the publisher.  Stay tuned for further updates and endorsements as we draw nearer the publication date.
