15409History of the Reformed Presbyterian Church
- Feb 8, 2007As many of you know, I have been attempting to acquire a copy of
Melancthon Glasgow's History of the Reformed Presbyterian Church
that was published in 1888.
I contacted Crown and Covenant about republishing it and they are not
interested in doing so. They referred me to the wonderful PDF
version that Nathaniel Pockras labored over (thank you Nathan).
Since then I have been in contact with Reformation Heritage Books
which is closely tied with my seminary. They are interested in
publishing the book for a number of reasons:
1. The RPCNA International Conference would bring many people into
bookstore here in Grand Rapids.
2. The bicentennial of the re instituting of the denomination is
3. The bicentennial of Reformed Presbyterian Theological Seminary is
4. As a favor to me :)
The condition to it being republished is that I must have 50 people
that are willing to purchase a copy of the book. This is to assure
RHB that their time and money will be invested well.
I plan on sending out information to the RP churches explaining this
and hoping to get a feel for how many people would purchase a copy.
I would also like to contact the seminary, Geneva college, and some
other institutions that may be interested.
The book would be $35 for a nice paperback copy and $45 for a
hardcover with a dust jacket.
If you are interested in purchasing a copy I am attempting to
compile a list for RHB. Please email me off-list (since I am not
trying to use this as a means of advancing my own interests). I
would need your name, address, and email address so that I can begin
to get this to the press.
This will make a great gift for your RP minister, seminary student,
church historian, or just to add to your collection of great books!
I pray that the Lord uses this book for the furtherance of His
