Reformed Churchmen

We are Confessional Calvinists and a Prayer Book Church-people. In 2012, we remembered the 350th anniversary of the 1662 Book of Common Prayer; also, we remembered the 450th anniversary of John Jewel's sober, scholarly, and Reformed "An Apology of the Church of England." In 2013, we remembered the publication of the "Heidelberg Catechism" and the influence of Reformed theologians in England, including Heinrich Bullinger's Decades. For 2014: Tyndale's NT translation. For 2015, John Roger, Rowland Taylor and Bishop John Hooper's martyrdom, burned at the stakes. Books of the month. December 2014: Alan Jacob's "Book of Common Prayer" at: January 2015: A.F. Pollard's "Thomas Cranmer and the English Reformation: 1489-1556" at: February 2015: Jaspar Ridley's "Thomas Cranmer" at:

Comfort in Chaos: How God's Wrath Preserves His People

Let me ask a few questions: 

Where is Christ in Nahum?
Why do we assume Christ is in Nahum?
Why does the Church stay away from teaching on books like Nahum?
How can its value be communicated?How are we to think about God's wrath?
Who are some of God’s enemies?
How do we handle those who oppose God’s kingdom and its values?
How does the message of Judgment affect your view of sin and of the unregenerate?

These questions and more are answered in my book Comfort in Chaos: A Study of Nahum ( Throughout the study, which is part exegesis, exposition, commentary, and devotional, special attention will be given to a Christ-centered understanding of Nahum. We frequently shy away from any discussion of God's wrath. But Nahum teaches us that God wrath actually preserves His people. 

A Facebook page has been created to promote, discuss, and answer any questions regarding the book.
