Quote to Consider:
John Owen: "... for as those who were
properly called priests had a nearer access unto God than the rest of
the people, especially in his solemn worship, so all the people that
are in covenant with God have such an approximation unto him by virtue
thereof, in comparison of them that are without, that in respect
thereof they are said to be priests."

received earlier this week. Thank you for responding so promptly to my

I have a friend who I think would love it as well." - Hampshire,
"Thank you for sending the book,
The Covenant of God and Children of Believers, and Prof.
Engelsma’s pamphlet, Until
Death Us Do Part. It is wonderful to read solid, biblical,
teaching on marriage and the errors connected with it. Such teaching
is so rare nowadays, even unique." - Warwickshire, England
"We received our tape order and are enjoying the
complete service including psalm singing. We also enjoy the two The
Psalms of David in Metre CDs." - Idaho, USA

By Faith Alone]. I like the way he gets to the simple meaning
of the text without a great deal of waffle. He is straight to the
point which is excellent." - Newcastle, England
"I would like to thank you for sending me the
pamphlets. They have been very helpful. I am a believer and ... have

some of the things I have been taught. Could you add me to your [C.
R. News] mailing list?" - Co. Antrim, N. Ireland

Roman ideas for my taste ..." - Co. Limerick, Rep. of Ireland

really appreciated. We would find it very difficult to live without
it. It must be that saving grace, that will not let us go. I do
appreciate your Covenant Reformed News you send me from time to
time ..." - Hull, England
"... there are so many sermons on the website that
I can listen for months. Right now I’m busy with the series on the
golden calf. These interest me especially because I do not have
anything but idolatry and false churches around me. The sermons
encourage me when I’m depressed and Satan’s tempting why not
compromise and go to some of Satan’s synagogues anyway ... But it
really is far too bad." - Sweden
"Thank you for the box of books ... what a parcel
of goodies." - Suffolk, England
"I am personally glad to see your website and the
commitment for the living God. The world is filled with the people of
religion, even Christianity seems to be moving towards such way, but
God Almighty wants His people to walk in His steps, that is to say in
accordance with the Scriptures ... May the Lord bless you and the
work." - India
"Greetings from Germany. I am a reverend in a local
congregation ... My special interest is Psalm-singing in history and

contact to Psalm-singing churches ... The Lord bless you and your
work." - Germany
"Thanks for sending [the books] to me. I am getting
most of the PRC books now [directly] from the USA ... I have recently

their faithful biblical teaching on this subject ..."
