A forthcoming review of the journal states: This new journal is a substantial publication, in more than one sense. It is physically a remarkably large volume, containing enough material for a sizeable book.... The articles represent a judicious mix of historical theology, systematics and practical theology, and usefully bridge the gap between academy and church.
Here is what you get in the 2005 issue (CPJ is an annual publication). Large format, 7x10, dbl column text in distinctive sewn bound journal, finely typeset:
A transcription from manuscript of one of the earliest sermons preached by Samuel Miller (from James 2:18).
A new annotated bibliography of the Works of Samuel Miller by Wayne Sparkman, including an index of the Samuel Miller Manuscript Collection
An article, Jonathan Edwards on Scripture and Salvation, by Dr. W. Gary Crampton.
An article, The "Ministerial and Declarative" Powers of the Church and In Thesi Deliverances, by Dr. C. N. Willborn.
An article, A Critical Examination of N. T. Wright's Doctrine of Justification, by J. V. Fesko, Ph.D. Worth the subscription price alone to get this article. Dr. Rowland Ward says this piece is a pretty devastating critique of this confusing rearrangement of Reformation doctrine.
An article, Reframing Presbyterian Worship: A Critical Survey of the Worship Views of John M. Frame and R. J. Gore, by Frank J. Smith, Ph.D. D. D. and David C. Lachman, Ph.D. Great addition to the literature defending the RPW, and devastating critiques, particularly by Dr. Lachman of R. J. Gore’s Ph.D. dissertation on which his later book was based.
An article, Examining the Work of S. W. Carruthers: Justifying a Critical Approach to the Text of the Westminster Standards & Correcting the 18th Century Lineage of the Traditional Scottish Text, by Chris Coldwell (New research; you won't find this information any where else.)

Antiquary. The Traditional Form of The Westminster Standards by Chris Coldwell (this explores how the collection of documents that make up the traditional Scottish form of the Standards came together over about 80 years from the close of the Assembly; turns out it is basically an RP collection!).
The cover stock is actually a light cream color; bleached by the scanner I guess.
Back Cover, Westminster Abbey as it would have looked to the Westminster divines in their day.
