The selection displays the interest of the authors giving a distinct cross section of those who have served as Preachers of the Covenants over three centuries.

Clark Copeland was born in 1915 in Kansas. After serving, ﬁrst as a teacher, then as director of the American Academy in Cyprus, he returned home to work as an ‘evangelist at large’ with the Reformed Presbyterian Church. He served brieﬂy as a pastor before becoming Professor of Biblical Studies at the Reformed Presbyterian Theological Seminary in Pittsburgh from 1962-89. This book is a tour through the rich tapestry of scripture’s great theme of God’s Covenant – a theme he loved to set before his students, revealing it in all its multi-faceted wonder.
Born into an upper-middle-class French family, John Calvin emerged as one of the most important and influential figures of the reformation. Indeed, some historians say, he is the most important. If Luther sounded the trumpet for reform, it was Calvin who orchestrated the score.
In this film we visit Geneva and its new modern Reformation Museum. We hear opinion on Calbin from England, Ireland, Scotland and America; and we consider how Calvin’s ministry changed the whole western world.
‘You must unlearn what you have learned’ Kicking off with that quote from Jedi Master Yoda, Warren and Ruth Peel plead with Christian young people today to revolutionise their thinking about dating – to unclog their brains of all the gunk from the non-Christian world that so easily builds up around our regenerate brain cells, and really get to grips with what God’s Word has to say about going out.
I have been accustomed to call the Book of Psalms ‘An Anatomy of all the parts of the Soul’; for there is not an emotion of which any one can be conscious that is not here represented as in a mirror. – John Calvin The Psalms are in a sense universal, and transcend the personal and historical. – Louis Berkhof The Psalms are an epitome of the whole Scriptures. – Athanasius Professor Leahy argues in this booklet that what God looks for in worship He has already given to us – namely the Book of Psalms.
The Wailing Jew, wailing before a wall in Jerusalem, all that remains of the Temple, wailing for himself and his people, but not for his sins! The Wandering Jew, philosophically and theologically adrift! But when the Jews turn to Christ with tears of true repentance, this wailing and wandering will end, and they will be led by the Good Shepherd. Then we can all stand together with Paul at the foot of the cross, each one of us saying, ‘I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me’.
