Blunder. We hope that all our readers realize that there was a serious blunder in the editorial columns of the June 1 issue. Part of my second editorial, which was an introduction to our critique of “Our Song of Hope,” was foolishly and inexcusably printed as though it were a continuation of the first editorial. The title appearing on page 391 should appear at the beginning of the first paragraph of column 2 on page 390. Responsibility for this blunder belongs not to us, but to our typesetter, Photo Composition Co.

We trust that our readers know the difference between a meditation and a lecture,. and that they understood that Prof. Hanko’s lecture was mistakenly printed under the caption “Meditation” in the August 1 issue. The error is not to be charged to the staff, but to the printer. Another error appeared in my book review of Promise and Deliverance. The words “a big extravagant”—lest any misunderstood—were not intended to be “a big extravagance,” but “a bit extravagant.”

This volume year is the 85th year that Protestant Reformed men and women have produced our semi-monthly magazine, dedicated to the promotion and defense of the Reformed faith. Over the course of 85 years, much has changed, and yet much has remained the same. What has changed is not essential: a new generation of writers, more writers, a wider variety of subjects, and a more modern appearance. What remains unchanged is our commitment to the development and defense of Reformed doctrine, the fresh exposition of Scripture, and the clear application of truth to the life of the church and the...

Elsewhere in this issue you will find an ad listing various Seminary publications. We have included it in this issue with a view to the fact that the society season will soon be upon us in our churches. And we believe that among our Seminary publications there are several which may be useful to our people in their studies in Men’s Society, Ladies’ Society, or Mr. & Mrs. Society. Yes, and in Young People’s Society, too! Meanwhile do not forget various helpful RFPA publications.

This October 1 issue begins the 87th year that the Lord permits us to publish our magazine, dedicated to promoting and defending the Reformed faith of the Scriptures. If you are reading this, you are probably an SB subscriber. We are thankful for your subscription, not because writers like to be read, but because it shows your interest in the Reformed faith, the rich faith of our fathers, “once delivered unto the saints,” as that faith is laid out in the Reformed and Presbyterian creeds. As editors, we pray that many more may be finding profit from the articles, which...

The Standard Bearer is 86 The October 1 issue is the beginning of the new volume year. This year is the Standard Bearer’s 86th. First of all, we express our heartfelt gratitude to Rev. Jason Kortering, Minister Emeritus (who asked to be relieved of his writing duties), for his many years of regular contributions to the magazine. Since his early years in the ministry, which began in 1960, Rev. Kortering put pen to paper faithfully. The older readers will remember his early meditations, and his insightful articles to young people in the “Strength of Youth.” For over 45 years the Standard Bearer audience profited from his...
