Although the actual occasion of New Year’s Day will be past when most of our readers receive this issue, we take this opportunity to wish you, our readers, a blessed new year. May you take to yourselves the word of Psalm 57:1a, “. . . yea, in the shadow of thy wings will I make my refuge, until these calamities be overpast.”
The Presbyterian. My colleague, Prof. Hanko, asked me to pass on to you a word about this little magazine. It is published by Mr. Tony Horne in Bristol, England. He is one of the saints whom the emissaries met while in Ireland and England in late 1984. He publishes this magazine in an effort to revive Presbyterianism in the U.K. The publication of this magazine is a personal venture of Mr. Horne. In order for the paper to survive, he needs subscriptions and support. The magazine can be obtained by writing to: “The Presbyterian,” 9 Church Rd., Thornbury, Bristol, BS12 1EJ, England. The cost for one year (six issues) is 3.72 pounds, surface mail, or 6.50 pounds, airmail. [For the exchange rate of dollars to pounds, see your bank; currently the pound is around $1.45.] A subscription to this magazine will both serve to help those interested in learning more of Presbyterianism and help support a worthwhile cause and foster the overseas contacts of our churches.
Price Increase, RFPA Publications. Here is the bad news. For various reasons, chief among which is the increased costs of publication, most of our RFPA books will go up in price as of January 1. Elsewhere in this issue you will find a complete price list. There are three exceptions to the price increase. Behold, He Cometh! will hereafter be available only in paperback, but at the same price of $12.95; right now there is a very small supply of hardcover copies left. Come, Ye Children, the Bible story book, andHyper-Calvinism and the Call of the Gospel will not go up in price. We call special attention to the fact that God’s Covenant Faithfulness is being sold out at $2.95; after the current supply is exhausted this book will not be reprinted. Now comes the good news; RFPA Book Club members will receive a 30% discount from now on instead of the former 20%. You cannot take advantage of your Book Club discount at Reformed Book Outlet in Hudsonville, MI; only by writing to RFPA Publications, P.O. Box 2006, Grand Rapids, MI 49501.
