One of the most heartening developments in the Reformed world in the past two decades is the renewal of interest in the Mercersberg movement. And one of the most heartening developments within that development is Wipf & Stock’s plan to publish a multi-volume collection of Mercersberg theology, under the general editorship of my hyperenergetic friend Brad Littlejohn. You can hear Brad talk about the project here: http://trinitytalkradio.com/2012/05/mercersburg-theology-with-brad-littlejohn/.
Some of the material to be published has not been published since it appeared in the Mercersberg Review in the 19th century, but the first volume in the series is a fresh edition of Nevin’s classic The Mystical Presence: And the Doctrine of the Reformed Church on the Lord’s Supper (Mercersburg Theology Study), with thorough newly written introductions, explanatory notes, translations, etc. Get it, study it, and look for the future volumes in the series over the next few years.
