4/4/01, Elders re. Saul in the Cave with Asinine

From: Lyndon Dohms
To: Bob S.
Cc: Greg Barrow, Greg L. Price
Date: Wed, 4 Apr :19:
Subject: re: Saul in the Cave of Adullam

Dear Bob,

In regard to your concerns about Reg Barrow's "Saul in the Cave of Adullam", we have a few clarifications to make:

-To our knowledge, Reg Barrow has never presented himself as a student minister or student elder to anyone.

-The statement made in our Session Minutes regarding this controversy is accurately reproduced in Appendix D of "Saul in the Cave of Adullam"

-The Puritan Bookshelf CD series was intended originally for the use of RPNA elders and members, and now it has been released to Still Waters Revival Books. The collection reflects the writings of numerous authors during the Puritan era, not all of whom we would agree with on every point. Your concern about guarding the public testimony of the PRC is shared by us. lf we gave you the impression that every book in this series was examined and approved by the Session, it was not the impression we intended. Still Waters Books is attempting to cull out the things directly opposed to our testimony, at though some of these articles are useful to the elders and mature members for study purposes.

If you have time to meet with Pastor Price during his visit to Everson this coming weekend. (April 7, 8) he would be quite willing to discuss your concerns about "Saul in the Cave of Adullam".

For the PRC Edmonton Session,
Lyndon Dohms
