Announcing the Mercersburg Research Fellowship

At last, I am ready to announce the readiness of our website, www.mercersburgtheology.org, where you will be able to find all kinds of information about the Mercersburg Theology, and about our exciting project to make its key writings available for a modern audience.  It’s still ugly and very much under construction, but it’s functional. 

Mark Noll has written the foreword for our first volume, in which he had nice things like this to say:

“This is the first volume of what the organizers of this series plan as an extended edition of the works of John W. Nevin, of his colleagues at the Mercersburg Seminary in the 1840s and 1850s, and of some who in those same years objected to Mercersburg views.  For a clearer picture of the United States’ unduly neglected theological history of the period—as well as a most welcome stimulus to theological reflection in our own day–the edition is a godsend.
. . .
In a word, those who take seriously the works to be featured in this exciting new publishing enterprise are in for the right kind of historical education and the best kind of theological challenge.  May the announced later volumes come speedily, and may attentive readers multiply as they come forth.”
