Mountain Movers’ Review

Letter to the Editor Dear Sir,      It was encouraging to read the positive reviews of my book The Mountain Movers in the English Churchman. Mr. Wilson’s kind remarks were particularly impressive, though he disagrees with some of my conclusions.

Queen’s Abdication

Sir;      Though sympathising with John Graham re the Queen’s abdication, I fail to see the need for Anglican Christians, freed of their governess, to leave their Church. Are not the very Christians to whom he refers the true Church of England? A church is not where one goes but what one is.      Should […]

Putting an End to Sin

Dear Brethren,      The doctrine that Christ puts an end to all sin for all time and eternity is a red thread throughout Scripture. Thus I feel that the recent discussion on the Symposium has chased a red herring rather than that red thread. I attach some thoughts on the subject as a reaction to […]

John Paul II

     Re John Paul II’s latest pronouncements. Anyone reading such sound and instructive books as Bungener’s History of the Council of Trent, Miles’ The Voice of the Glorious Reformation and Collette’s’ The Novelties of Romanism, will realise how the Vatican sect, erroneously known as the Roman Catholic Church, is a pseudo-religious movement of a relatively […]

However, it is fashionable to denigrate the Tudors and Stuarts and, as Hanko and Gay, and pronounce Anglican Reformers guilty by association. This argument would weigh equally on the Continentals who were patronised by the […]

An Open Letter to Thomas Ascol and Earnest C. Reisiger, Editors of The Foundation Journal. Dear Brethren in Christ,      You will be aware that until the late eighties in Britain and on the Continent of Europe, the issue of Calvinism v.

A Second Open Letter to the Founders’ Journal

A Second Open Letter to Thomas Ascol and Earnest C. Reisiger, Editors of The Foundation Journal. Dear Brethren,      I trust that my last letter was received safely in the spirit I sent it and that my heart reached your heart through my words, clumsy as they were. I am unused to this kind of […]

Princeton Versus The New Divinity

Banner of Truth Trust, £11:50   A long hoped-for sign from the Banner of Truth      New Divinity, alias New England theology, modified Calvinism radically. Its adherents, termed Edwardeans, took the go-ahead from Jonathan Edwards, hence their nick-name. However, they drew conclusions from Edward’s highly philosophical view of man, that were wildly speculative. This was […]
