Preaching the Infallible Word

Ordained Servant Cover

June / July 2008

From the Editor. Preaching the Word requires confidence in the infallible nature of the divinely given message of Scripture. If you are interested in the relationship between incarnation and inspiration, then you will enjoy Lane Tipton's article "Incarnation, Inspiration, and Pneumatology: A Reformed Incarnational Analogy." Preaching the Word also requires confidence in the Spirit of God who empowers the preacher in the preaching moment. Among other important points, Stephen Doe accents the need for this confidence in his article, "The Voice From the Pulpit: John Calvin and Preaching."

Men who are licentiates of OPC presbyteries may now request free subscriptions to the annual printed edition of OS. Each presbytery will also receive copies to distribute to men presently under care each year.

Blessings in the Lamb,
Gregory Edward Reynolds
