Rev. M. Schipper, a regular contributor to ourMeditation department, is still recuperating from recent surgery and therefore unable to take his usual turn in writing meditations. That accounts fro your editor’s taking a turn as substitute. Rev. Schipper, the oldest of our retired ministers (going on 77), at last report also expected to have to undergo further surgery, this time for the correction of an aneurysm on his aorta. May the Lord sustain and comfort our brother!

This is the second of our special issues in the current volume. You will find it to be different from some of our earlier special issues, which have been of an informative and reportorial nature. This issue is devoted entirely—with the exception of the back-page news column—to one doctrine, the doctrine of the church. This does not mean that it is a complete treatment of the doctrine of the church in all its aspects: for it is not, and does not intend to be that.

Back Bound Volumes. Our Business Manager informed me recently that he has available a good many copies of back bound volumes. Sorry to say, it is no longer possible to obtain some of the early volumes, nor even some later ones—unless you are fortunate enough to get them secondhand from a private source. But here is the list of volumes available from our Business Office: Volumes 7, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 26, 27, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 37, 38, 39, 40, 41, 42, 43, 44, 47, 49, 50, 51, 52,...

Be sure to take note of the New Zealand Newsletter from the pen of brother Arie van Echten, of Palmerston North. This will give you an opportunity to become acquainted with the brothers and sisters among whom and in behalf of whom the Rev. John A. Heys has been laboring. If you have a map of New Zealand available, it will be helpful to consult that map, to understand the North Island area in which the Rev. Heys is laboring. Places like Wellington, Otaki, and Palmerston North are all in the southern part of North Island.

Comments on Special Issue We were delighted by the many favorable comments about the May 15 special issue on Predestination. Several letters were received in which extra copies were requested, and many oral comments were made. One of the striking facts about that issue was that all the writers wrote independently of one another—the one not knowing what the other would write—and yet there was unity and harmony among the various articles.

Publication News. Scheduled for autumn publication by our Reformed Free Publishing Association are two paperbacks which will sell at $3.95 each. The first will be Prof. Herman Hanko’s We And Our Children (The Reformed Doctrine of Infant Baptism). This valuable little book, as the sub-title indicates, sets forth the Reformed doctrine of infant baptism; but it does so over against the Baptist position. The book is an adaptation of a series of articles in the Protestant Reformed Theological Journal which were written by Prof.

ABOUT BOUND VOLUMES. Our business Manager informs me that all copies of the bound volume of last year (Volume 57) have been distributed as of this date. This volume was very later, due to problems at the bindery. Moreover, our business office received the bound volumes a few at a time. Mr. Vander Wal is a bit concerned that some of our regular subscribers to bound volumes may have been overlooked, due to the confusion. If you have not yet received your copy, please write to our Business Office immediately. We also have a few surplus copies, available at $12.00...

End of Volume 59 With this issue we have come to the end of Volume 59. The annual index will be found in this issue, thanks to my editorial assistant, Mr. D. Doezema. That reminds me: on October 1 the Standard Bearer celebrates its sixtieth birthday!   “Open Letter In this issue you will find a rather lengthy contribution entitled “Open Letter.'” It concerns the movement for Reformed higher education. Personally, I am glad to note that they are increasingly “going public,” as I suggested some time ago. Be sure to read their informative letter.   Publication News It begins to look...
