The Autumn 2019 edition of Churchman (Vol 133/3) is now published.

Somewhat later than usual, with our apologies following some unavoidable delays in the production process, we are pleased that the latest edition of Churchman is now published and on its way to subscribers.

Peter Jensen’s editorial reflects on “The Hardest Job Of All” - that of being senior minister in a parish church, tasked with preaching week in, week out to a congregation. He considers the importance of doctrine, the ongoing learning and development of the pastor, and the need for our laity to be to be well-educated in the ways of the Lord.

Other articles include an examination of the baptismal ecclesiology implied in the Common Worship Ordinal, an investigation into the practical implications of the warning passages in the book of Hebrews, George Whitefield’s theology of preaching, and an assessment of John Henry Newman’s lectures on justification, showing them to be flawed and unsuccessful.

The issue concludes with a substantial collection of book reviews, featuring both scholarly and popular works across the breadth of the theological disciplines.

More details of the articles in this issue can be found here.

Single issues of Churchman can be purchased here, or you can subscribe here. Church Society members are eligible for a discounted subscription rate.

Ros Clarke is Associate Director of Church Society and Course Leader of the Priscilla Programme
