    I sure like that “100% off” Westminster price notation that you see when you follow the link to the Westminster bookstore. Somehow, I don’t think that’s going to last long!

    I wonder what took so long getting Volume 3 done…

    Lane: would you recommend the whole series? I’m inclined to think it might be one of those hidden jewels whose beauty can only be fullly appreciated in time.

    I would recommend the whole series, though not every article in every one of the volumes. For instance, David Wright’s article interpreting the WCF in terms favorable to baptismal regeneration is not on target, nor is Nick Needham’s work on worship. But the vast majority of the articles are splendid and well worth the investment.

    Good ‘ole Chad.

    I’m gutted he had to move back to the States, lovely, lovely guy. Very, very nearly made me a Presby :)

    Nah, nah, na, na Pete (tongue sticking out while said).

    I was at WTS with Chad. Of course I was just one of the old guys quietly skootin by the young guns – of which Chad was impressive even then.

    How did Wright’s baptismal regeneration comments sneak past Ligon Duncan, anyway? I sent him an email about it a while ago, but I never heard back.

    Patrick Ramsey addressed Wright’s paper in “Baptismal Regeneration and the Westminster Confession of Faith,” The Confessional Presbyterian 4 (2008) 183-193. http://www.cpjournal.com
