Primary Sources for the Presbyterian Masses

About

I have set this blog up as a convenient place to share interesting items that I come across in my work as the director of the PCA Historical Center.  The Center is located in St. Louis, Missouri, on the campus of Covenant Theological Seminary, and it is a ministry of the PCA Stated Clerk’s Office.
The Historical Center serves as the denominational archives of the Presbyterian Church in America, but we also house the records of five other conservative Presbyterian denominations and their agencies, the manuscript collections of one hundred people connected with these denominations, and congregational history materials for over seven hundred PCA churches.  These holdings are augmented by a modest research library of about 5,000 volumes touching on all aspects of American Presbyterian history.  Indexes to many of the collections can be found online at the PCAHC web site, http://www.pcahistory.org

  1. Hi! I’m reading Machen right now and saw that you were looking for the source on the quote.

    It’s in Christianity and Liberalism, Chapter 3, “God and Man.”

  2. Thank you so much for posting the sermon of Rev. Ira Miller. He is my grandfather and I have been searching the web for anything he had written. He didn’t move to California, but remained at the same house in St. Louis until his death in the 1950’s. You don’t by any chance have anything else by him. I know he wrote two books one on Romans and the other on Galatians or Corinthians. He taught Greek for a while and I was too young to appreciate how wise he was, but I am studying Greek myself and often think of him and know he prayed for me. Sincerely Dale O’Leary

    • Dale:

      We do have some few other things by him, and I will be pleased to try to find a way to supply you with digital copies.

      I would suggest that you write to me at archivist {AT} pcahistory -/Dot/- org and we can go from there.

  3. Hello,

    I’m trying to find an article in a magazine called _The Presbyterian_. It’s Clarence Macartney’s response to an article in the _Atlantic Monthly_ by Harry Fosdick entitled “The Tenches and the Church at Home”. I don’t know exactly when Macartney wrote his response article, but Fosdick’s article was published in January 1919, so I imagine that Macartney’s _Presbyterian_ article would have come out shortly after that.

    Do you have any advice on how I could get a copy of this article? Thanks

    Paul Hunt
