Three ways to experience The Saint John's Bible at Princeton Theological Seminary this spring.
The Way International (also known as the Way Bible Research Institute), with headquarters in New Knoxville, Ohio, was officially founded in 1957 by Victor Paul Wierwille (1916-1985). (Although no significant growth occurred until the Jesus Movement of the late 1960s, others attribute The Way's beginning to October of 1942 to Wierwille's radio broadcast, the "Vesper Chimes," which first aired on WLOK in Lima). Formerly, Wierwille was a United Church of Christ minister who had studied at two liberal seminaries -- the University of Chicago Divinity School and Princeton Theological Seminary. [Although his followers referred to him as "Doctor," Wierwille had no earned doctorate. His bogus doctoral degree was purchased from Pikes Peak Bible Seminary, a diploma mill (see, From "Vesper Chimes" to "The Way International," pp. 10-11).] Though exposed to the Bible, Wierwille was a man who had rejected God's truth in utter rebellion. Putting the Bible aside, Wierwille exercised very little discernment in learning fro ...

Jesus loves you today as much as He will 10,000 years from now. If He could love you more, He would be improving. In our frailty we have the capacity to improve and love with a more perfect love, that’s why we tell people we love, “I love you more and more every day in every way.” God is already there. “The LORD hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love…” (Jeremiah 31:3). “Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever” (Hebrews 13:8). Our Lord cannot love you more; He loves you now as much as He ever will. Robert *** Wilson (1856-1930) was fluent in 45 languages and dialects, including all of the Biblical and cognate languages, such as Hebrew, Greek, Babylonian, Phoenician, Coptic, various Aramaic dialects, French, German, and so forth. He could quote a Hebrew version of the New Testament from memory. He was the leading professor at Princeton Theological Seminary where he spent many years defending the Bible against all comers, stemm ...
Today we begin a series of devotionals written by the late Dr. James Cook. Dr. Cook held an MA in English Literature as well as a Bachelor of Divinity and a Doctor of Theology degree. Dr. Cook pastored the Blawenburg Reformed Church in New Jersey while earning his doctorate at Princeton Theological Seminary. He taught courses in New Testament and theology and literature at Western Theological Seminary from 1963-2004. The devotionals from August 8-22 are drawn from his series on the book of Romans.

hi! I was actually at Missional Preaching workshop in Princeton Theological Seminary earlier :) and I typed @ instead of "at" :)
I want to live in Princeton Theological Seminary's library.
Interesting excerpt: Beneath the review was a quote by Warren in the Saddleback Sayings section, which reads: “Expository Preaching: When the message is centered around explaining and applying the text of the Bible for life change.” While I have not heard very many of Warren’s messages, I have heard enough to know that he does not use the traditional expository method. It would seem, though, from the review and from his own statement, that he thinks he does. I am willing to concede that in all likelihood he had nothing to do with the review in the Ministry Toolbox (which was likely written by a staff member), but the quote came from the man himself. _ When I was a newbie in the ministry in the US of A (but just completed my postgraduate degree in Preaching at Princeton Theological Seminary), I was pressured by some church "authority" in the "Church, Inc." that "hired" me to preach using Rick Warren's sermon outline as the church was a "purpose-driven church" (as if other churches that were not were ...
Princeton University and Princeton Theological Seminary are not related - they just happen to be in the same town.
Obituary - May Copley: May Thompson Bush was born on May 4, 1923, at her grandparents' estate in Basking Ridge, New Jersey. She was the second of five children born to Marion Roberts and the Reverend Sargent Bush. May's first home was in Princeton, New Jersey, while her father attended Princeton Theological seminary. From 1927-1931 she lived in Slatington, Pennsylvania, in the Presbyterian manse next to the church. In 1931 the family moved to Flemington, New Jersey, where, in the fall of 1932, May's older sister, Lavinia Fenton Bush, died from pneumonia. May had difficulty learning to read so her parents sent her to a private tutor. When her tutor taught her by using the phonics method, May quickly learned to read and became a lifelong reader. Her younger sister, Katherine Lincoln Bush, also began learning to read using the phonics method with the tutor, and from then on, May and Katherine were in the same grade. In January of 1929, the Bush family, including Marion Roberts Bush, a five-month-old sister o ...

By the time this newsletter is read, the Texas Rangers baseball team (or as some of our members say, “our beloved Texas Rangers”) will have played their first game of the 2014 season. Hopefully they will have beaten the Philadelphia Phillies and the dejected former Ranger pitcher, Cliff Lee. But what this article is about is not sour grapes about Cliff Lee (that can be left for a discussion in Sunday School!).   I recently read an article entitled, “Laying One Down: Baseball and Sacrifice,” by John Bowlin, professor of theology and public life at Princeton Theological Seminary. He compares the game of baseball to some aspects of the Christian gospel. He wrote, “We are well into Lent and its disciplines. Holy Week is fast upon us. And the baseball season is beginning. I’ve always considered this convergence of calendars fitting. Baseball is a gospel game, or so it seems to me. At the very least, it bears a portion of the gospel’s image.” (At this point, some may already be thinking of the ...

Born to be a Librarian (B2BAL) Moment: Today, I was thinking about the fact that the library is yet to be named. Unofficially, the going rate for naming rights is about $3mil. If there are 8.3 million United Methodists in the US, and if each gives a dollar, one of three names could legitimately be used: 1) The John and Charles Wesley Library at Princeton Theological Seminary; 2) The Library of Prevenient Grace; or 3) The Library of Christian Perfection. This is what I think about. Special thanks to Katie O'Hern for name submissions!
Wow! Two rich and fruitful years of studying at McCormick are almost complete. Now, I am glad to inform you of my admission at number of schools as follows: 1- Divinity School, University of Chicago, AMRS program for a year, 70% of scholarship. 2- Princeton Theological Seminary, Th.m program for one year, full scholarship. 3- Union Theological Seminary, NEW YORK, S.T.M program for a year, full scholarship. 4- Lutheran School of Theology, Th.m program for 0 scholarship. Now, seriously, I am thinking back and forward between the second and third option. Please, share with me your ideas and thoughts. The area of my concentration is the "History of the Doctrine"; it goes under both of History and Theology department. NEED YOUR HELP! Time for voting!

This fall I will be starting my Master of Divinity at Princeton Theological Seminary!
"Any time you think you can find a little salvation through your own work, you are in grave danger. The danger is this: if you fail, or worse yet if you succeed for a while, then you're stuck with yourself for a god. That destines you to the profane existence of journeying through life as if the solution to every problem is to get busy. When you are your own god, life knows no mystery or awe. Nothing amazes, astonishes, or overwhelms you. And that is a small and very sad way to live. It flattens your soul...Ironically, to be frantic with busyness is a lazy thing. It avoids the hard work of calling on the Lord's name and looking for his involvement. As the catechism claims, to invoke God's name is to glorify him in all our words and works... It is not saying Christians should not work hard. It's saying that if we're not praying about our work, we're not working hard enough." --M. Craig Barnes (President of Princeton Theological Seminary), "Body and Soul: Reclaiming the Heidelberg Catechism"

Rev. George Shippen Stark holds a distinguished place in the history of Princeton Theological Seminary. A graduate of Lincoln University, Rev. Stark received his Bachelors of Divinity from PTS in 1902 and followed it by becoming one of the first African-American graduates of Princeton University, receiving a Masters of Arts degree in 1906. He was called to the Witherspoon Presbyterian Church in Princeton, where he served until World War I broke out. With the formation of a number of black regiments, Rev. Stark joined the army as a 1st Lieutenant as a chaplain for the 367th Infantry Regiment. At the end of the war, Rev. Stark would receive a call to the Siloam Presbyterian Church in Brooklyn, New York, where he would guide their growth until his death in 1947.
Yes its Black History Month but because I'm that different type of dude that's weird and lives to be outside of the norm and hates conformity, I am celebrating White Americans this month. Yes that's right WHITE AMERICANS who have sacrificed their lives, careers, and welfare to protect and fight for Black Americans! Today's Black History Hero is James Reeb. Reeb was an Ivy League dude born on January 1, 1927, He attended Princeton Theological Seminary in Princeton, New Jersey and ordained a Presbyterian minister after graduation. As a scholar of theology, Reeb grew away from traditionalist Presbyterian teachings and was drawn to the Unitarian Universalist church. Reeb appreciated the church's emphasis on social action, and he became active in the CIVIL RIGHTS MOVEMENT of the 1950s and 1960s. Beginning in his new ministry, he encouraged parishioners to participate in the movement as well. With his wife and four children, he lived in poor black neighborhoods where he felt he could do the most good. After t . ...

Rediscovering our past David Wilder January 10, 2014 Back in the 1960s an archeologist from the United States, Prof. Philip Hammond, from the Princeton Theological Seminary, excavated in Hebron, in the area call Tel Rumeida, during the summer months of 1964, 1965, and 1966. He discovered many interesting artifacts on the south eastern side of the Tel, including the remains of walls so large and so old, that he called them “Cycloptic walls.” Hammond’s findings were later documented by Prof. Jeffrey Chadwick of the Brigham Young University in his doctoral thesis. (See: Discovering Hebron, Jeffrey R. Chadwick, BAR 31:05, Sep/Oct 2005). Later excavations were continued by Dr. Avi Ofer, between the years 1984-1986. He discovered what was called one of the most important archaeological finds, a tablet with writing on it, from the era preceding Abraham, probably a list of animals, perhaps utilized for sacrifice. In 1998, archologist Yuval Peleg literally fell into an underground room, near the present entr ...

Brief quotes from the textbook, "Across the Spectrum," by Gregory Boyd PhD. Princeton Theological Seminary, Senior Pastor of Woodland Hills Church; and co-author Paul R. Eddy, PhD., professor of biblical studies at Bethel University. "... this means a relationship with God is one a person must choose to enter into and choose to sustain. If a person decides to terminate the relationship, if he or she "divorces" God, the relationship ends. Christian can and sometimes do revoke their vows to walk faithfully with God." This is not simply an inference made up on the basis of the nature of interpersonal relationships; it is explicitly taught in Scripture. The Bible describes salvation in conditional terms. It warns believers not to fall away. It identifies certain people who in fact lose their salvation... "First, though Scripture declares that salvation is eternally secure FROM God's side, it stresses that it is conditional from the HUMAN side. God wants everyone to be saved, but He is not willing to ...
Christianity and Culture by J. Gresham Machen     (Taken from The Princeton Theological ReviewVolume XI, 1913, pp. 1-15provided by the Library of Western Reformed Seminary, Tacoma, Washington)     An address on The Scientific Preparation of the Minister , delivered September 20, 1912, at the opening of the one hundred and first session of Princeton Theological Seminary, and in substance (previously) at a meeting of the Presbyterian Ministers Association of Philadelphia, May 20, 1912.     One of the greatest of the problems that have agitated the Church is the problem of the relation between knowledge and piety, between culture and Christianity. This problem has appeared first of all in the presence of two tendencies in the Church the scientific or academic tendency, and what may be called the practical tendency. Some men have devoted themselves chiefly to the task of forming right conceptions as to Christianity and its foundations. To them no fact, however trivial, has appeared worthy of neglect; by ...

Brian Rainey Ph.D '13 is headed to Theological Seminary as assistant professor of the Old Testament!
Food for thought: Another respected scholar, Dr. J. O. Kinnaman, declared: "Of the hundreds of thousands of artifacts found by the archaeologists, not one has ever been discovered that contradicts or denies one word, phrase, clause, or sentence of the Bible, but always confirms and verifies the facts of the biblical record." The well-known language scholar, Dr. Robert *** Wilson, formerly professor of Semitic philology at Princeton Theological Seminary, made the following comment, "After forty-five years of scholarly research in biblical textual studies and in language study, I have come now to the conviction that no man knows enough to assail the truthfulness of the Old Testament. When there is sufficient documentary evidence to make an investigation, the statement of the Bible, in the original text, has stood the test" (Dr. Robert *** Wilson, Speaker's Source Book, p. 391).
For all those Fundie bashers. Fundamentalism as a movement arose in the United States, starting among conservative Presbyterian theologians at Princeton Theological Seminary in the late 19th century. It soon spread to conservatives among the Baptists and other denominations around 1910 to 1920. The movement's purpose was to reaffirm key theological tenets and defend them against the challenges of liberal theology and higher criticism. The first formulation of American fundamentalist beliefs can be traced to the Niagara Bible Conference and, in 1910, to the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church, which distilled these into what became known as the "five fundamentals": 1. Inspiration of the Bible and the inerrancy of scripture as a result of this. 2. Virgin birth of Christ. 3. Belief that Christ's death was the atonement for sin. 4. Bodily resurrection of Christ. 5. Historical reality of Christ's miracles. By the late 1910s, theological conservatives rallying around the Five Fundamentals came to be kno ...
He Just Persisted May 18 We often rush when we should plod, forgetting that we usually accomplish more by persisting than by hurrying. Sheldon Jackson was born on May 18, 1834 in the Mohawk Valley of New York. When he was four his parents dedicated him to God’s service, and his ambition from youth was to be a missionary. After graduating from Princeton Theological Seminary, he joined the thousands trekking to the American West. Most were searching for gold, land, and open skies. Wagon trains were leaving St. Louis daily. The golden spike tied East to West in 1866 as the Union Pacific Railway opened. Boom towns arose. Cowboys and mining camps, rowdy saloons and gunfighters filled the frontier. Jackson was everywhere, searching for souls with the fervor of a prairie fire. He once organized seven churches in 15 days. He stood just over five feet tall, but his size, he said, allowed him to sleep anywhere. His bed was a stagecoach floor, a saloon loft, a hollow log, a teepee, a canoe. Someone described him a ...

Rev. Francis J. Grimké “Washington is a hard training ground for preachers.” This quote probably remains as accurate today as it was 100 years ago when it was made by famous black pastor Francis James Grimké. Grimké was born to a slave mother in South Carolina in 1850. When his guardian tried to sell him into slavery, he escaped and served as a valet in the Confederate Army. He was taken hostage and almost died, but was nursed back to health by his mother only to be sold into slavery to a Confederate officer, spending the rest of the Civil War as a slave. When emancipation was finally achieved, Francis first attended Lincoln University in Pennsylvania, and then graduated from Princeton Theological Seminary as an ordained Presbyterian minister, becoming pastor of Fifteenth Street Presbyterian Church in Washington, D. C. As famous black historian Carter Woodson reported, his ministry had a definite impact: During the first years of the ministry of Mr. Grimké, which began in the spring of 1878, there ...

Good Morning from the Black Theology & Leadership Institute at Princeton Theological Seminary. Have a blessed and productive day scholars.
Gregory Boyd is not just a megachurch pastor who inherited a mammoth congregation. He is the man God used to grow Woodland Hills Church in Minnesota from forty people to five thousand. With powerful worship and practical Bible teaching, Woodland Hills embodies the oft-idealized growing megachurch— with one slight tweak. A graduate of Yale Divinity School and Princeton Theological Seminary, Boyd isn’t just a gifted communicator and pastor, he’s also an Ivy League intellectual. So when Boyd was pressured to introduce Republican politicians from the pulpit, he hesitated. The more his church grew, the more it seemed he was expected, perhaps required, to call his congregation to action for the evangelical right’s agenda. Boyd felt trapped in a conflict between what he saw as Christ’s kingdom and the kingdom of Republican politics. On April 18, 2004, Boyd declared his loyalty. He preached a questioning sermon titled “Taking America Back for God?” He argued that the United States is not a Christian ...

Persistent Problems Confronting Bible Translators   Bruce M. Metzger [Bruce M. Metzger is Professor of New Testament Language and Literature, Emeritus, Princeton Theological Seminary, Princeton, New Jersey.] [This is article three in the four-part series, “Translating the Bible: An Ongoing Task,” delivered by the author as the W. H. Griffith Thomas Lectures at Dallas Theological Seminary, February 4–7, 1992.] The work involved in making a translation of the Bible is both exhilarating and exhausting. It is exhilarating when translators consider the benefits, both spiritual and literary, that the rendering will provide to their readers; it is exhausting when they confront various problems, some of them beyond the possibility of solution. Problems involved in translating the Scriptures are many. Some result from the presence of variant readings among the manuscripts of the Old and New Testaments. Others have to do with the meaning of rare words as well as the uncertainty of punctuation of the Hebrew a ...

Louis Berkhof's parents belonged to the Orthodox pietistic separatist party (1834) Reformed Church.

The family emigrated to the United States of Ameri rich in 1882, settling in Grand Rapids, Michigan, where Louis spent the remained of his life. In 1900, he graduated from the School of Theology of the Christian Reformed Church in Grand Rapids, and between the two pastorates in this denomination, made in two years (1902-1904) work graduate in theology at Princeton Theological Seminary.

Dad was born 100 years ago this day in San Antonio, Texas (mom was from Pine Bluff, Arkansas). He rose out of modest background to become president of his class at Princeton Theological Seminary in the 1930's, paying his way by playing a rather wicked trumpet in a small band he put together. (He recalled crossing the Princeton campus, trumpet case in hand, and passing Albert Einstein with his cello case, en route to practice.) Dad was eventually appointed pastor of a new Presbyterian Church west of St.Louis, which became Ladue Chapel, on November 7th, 1943, and which he helped foster the growth of, for several decades. While he was pastor in Ladue, he joined other ministers in St. Louis who went to Selma, Alabama, in March of 1965, joining the march organized by Martin Luther King. It was an experience all of our family recalled as quite scary, even life-threatening. I only later began to appreciate fully what that trip to Selma meant. Dad later wrote that, for him, "there was a kind of bridge betwe ...

When I graduated from Princeton Theological Seminary the Episcopal diocese of Philadelphia advised me to spend a "few years in the market place" before entering the priesthood. The rationale: in the future most clergy will have to hold second jobs to make ends meet.. I refused to listen to this sage advice - after all, I told myself, I'd just spent three years in graduate school training for the ministry. So I moved to another denomination. That was 34 years ago. For the past 20 years I've been a part-time (we call it "tentmaker") minister and I love it. There's something very rewarding about holding down a secular job and also serving in the ministry..
Join us as we celebrate 200 years of service and shift our focus to future generations and the next century of ministry. If you haven’t been to Princeton lately, this is the year to come!

Pickup some INSTANT HAPPY today by KAREN SALMANSOHN The longer explanation: INSTANT HAPPY offers what Neural Psychology calls a “pattern interrupt.” Let’s say an event happens which puts you in a grumpy mood. If you’re not careful, your negative thoughts about this one solo circumstance can create a downward spiral, where you quickly go from merely thinking “This one thing *** ” to “My whole day *** ” to “My whole life *** ” to “The world *** ” to “Distant galaxies suck.” Basically, without a pattern interrupt, a sad person can get grumpier, and an angry person can get crankier! Happily MRI’s of the brain have shown that when a person starts to think happy thoughts, they can send a surge of blood flowing into brain regions associated with happiness (the left prefrontal cortex) — thereby literally refueling their positivity. Plus, recent studies on learning show that when you incorporate visuals into your learning process, you may be able to better “record” a mes ...
The truth about Death and Spiritual life.
Several days ago, I finished a course in the New Testement taught by Profesor Bart D. Ehrman. Bart D. Ehrman is the James A. Gray Distinguished Professor at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He came to UNC in 1988, after four years of teaching at Rutgers University. At UNC he has served as both the Director of Graduate Studies and the Chair of the Department of Religious Studies.

Since then he has published extensively in the fields of New Testament and Early Christianity, having written or edited twenty-four books, numerous scholarly articles, and dozens of book reviews. These instructor makes me want a lot more education than what I have. But, again, you are probably better off if you just believe the Bible and don't care how it got here; then you won't start wondering about things. ...

Part 3 of Fred Craddock's Sermon "The Last Temptation of the Church" delivered at Princeton Theological Seminary's 1989 Commencement.
When it comes to the New Testament Bible scholars still debate over the accuracy of the manuscripts and try to determine which are most accurate since the original manuscripts have been lost and the manuscripts we have today are many centuries older than the originals. None of the copies are perfectly accurate; they all contain mistakes. This information comes from Bruce Manning Metzger an American bible scholar and textual critic who was a longtime professor at Princeton Theological Seminary and Bible editor who served on the board of the American Bible Society and United Bible Societies. He was a scholar of Greek, New Testament, and New Testament Textual Criticism, and wrote prolifically on these subjects. Metzger is widely-considered to be one of the most influential New Testament scholars of the 20th century.

The Reverend E. Jerome Alexis, husband to Marj, father and grandfather, Battle of the Bulge veteran (and POW), mentor, mensch and my friend, was called to Glory yesterday on his 88th birthday. As befits such a fine gentleman, he went home gracefully and surrounded by the love of his family and many friends. A spectcular heavenly reception is anticipated. Not so conincidentally, my wonderful friend Todd Tracy graduated from Princeton Theological Seminary yesterday. He will soon be ordained and installed as a Minister of Word and Sacrament in Columbus Ohio. See how the Shepherd provides for his flock. One minister, weary and full of years, is called home to Glory while another, young, strong and able, steps into the field. Blessings to both men and their proud families.
Psalm 62:6 NLT He alone is my rock and my salvation, my fortress where I will not be shaken. ARE YOU A Dr. Robert Wilson was a Princeton Theological Seminary professor and Hebrew scholar. Dr. Wilson made it a practice to hear every one of his students when they preached at Millard Chapel, but he would hear them only one time. Someone asked him, "Dr. Wilson, when you go back to hear your students, what are you looking for? What are you listening for?" Dr. Wilson's answer was unusual: "I'm just trying to determine whether they are a little God-er or a big God-er. I only need to hear them once to know." He went on to explain, "If they are little God-ers, I know their ministry won't go far, and they'll probably always be strugglin ( g. But if they are big God-ers, I know God will work through them in a wonderful way." The man asked him how he could make the distinction between little God-ers and big God-ers. "A little God-er," he said, "will begin with a series of problems, and he' ll have a low view of scrip ...
