Furious and Imperious Presbyterianism

Links updated and added 8/2/08

The latest essay on the Trinity Foundation website is “Imperious Presbyterianism” by Kevin Reed.
Pavlov aside, the names of both should ring a bell for contemporary presbyterians.

Kevin Reed set up Presbyterian Heritage Publications in 1983 to publish historic and contemporary works defensive and expository on presbyterian worship and government. Other than a complete backlog of PHP titles published on CD-Rom in 2001, Reed and PHP have been  pretty much silent.  Aside from the P&R churches which still observed historic reformed worship and after GI Williamson,  PHP played an important part in laying the foundation for the explosion in literature about and interest in the regulative principle of worship in the ‘90's.
