Biblical Worship by Kevin Reed (Written with a clear view of upholding the biblical tradition of Reformation worship -- with the life and death struggle that was a backdrop to the Reformers war against the idols clearly in mind. Touches on a number of controversial issues that have arisen as human innovations in worship have become commonplace in contemporary church life -- even among those that still fancy being known as Reformed.)
Presbyterian Worship: Old and New by Kevin Reed (A Review and Commentary upon Worship in Spirit and Truth, a book by John Frame [Phillipsburg, N.J.: Presbyterian and Reformed Pub. Co.,1996; paper, 171 pages]. Reed shows how Frame has abandoned the Reformation, both scripturally and confessionally, in regard to worship. He also gives an excellent summary of historic Reformed views and then contrasts them with the novel ideas now being touted by Frame. In light of the fact that Frame teaches at a Presbyterian seminary and is also a Presbyterian pastor (in the P.C.A.), Reed notes the "distressing implications regarding the disingenuous nature of confessional subscription within both the churches and the seminaries." Moreover, Reed comments that "there are also troubling ramifications concerning the doctrine of scripture, since the regulative principle rests upon the foundation of the sufficiency of scripture, with respect to worship." He continues by concluding that "Frame's book furnishes patent evidence that ecclesiastical discipline is lacking in the churches, and that seminary professors can teach heterodox views with impunity. If Presbyterians took their creed seriously, Mr. Frame would be removed from both the seminary and the pastorate, and not allowed to teach. But in the current situation, the majority of pastors, seminarians, and the people are partners in the crimes of corrupt worship and confessional laxity. 'A wonderful and horrible thing is committed in the land; the prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love to have it so.'")

The Decline of American Presbyterianism (A Book Review of Gary North's Crossed Fingers: How the Liberals Captured the Presbyterian Church) by Kevin Reed ("Last year, the present writer reviewed volume 1 of David Calhoun's history of Princeton Seminary. The first volume of Calhoun's narrative ended at a pivotal point in the history of Northern Presbyterianism: the reunion of the Old School and New School Assemblies in 1869. Realizing that a significant part of Princeton's story (as well as the story of the Northern Presbyterianism) was yet to be told, I eagerly took up volume two of Calhoun's narrative, shortly after the book was published. Unfortunately, the second volume, The Majestic Testimony, is a major disappointment. Readers who want to know what happened after 1869, in order to gain an understanding of the demise of Princeton (and Northern Presbyterianism) will require additional sources beyond Calhoun's second volume. Therefore, we are presenting readers with a combined book review, in which we will also draw attention to another important work, Gary North's Crossed Fingers: How the Liberals Captured the Presbyterian Church," notes Reed.)

Religious Dissemblers and Theological Liars by Kevin Reed (A book review of Ways of Lying: Dissimulation, Persecution, and Conformity in Early Modern Europe by Perez Zagorin. Cambridge, Mass.: Harvard University Press, 1990. Hardcover, 337 pages. This book includes "four chapters devoted to the Nicodemite controversy, with considerable attention given to Calvin's role in opposing the 'Nicodemites.' Zagorin surveys Calvin's 'Anti-Nicodemite' writings, and provides a useful synopsis of the various arguments of the reformer," writes Reed. Reed's conclusions are also very helpful, as he surveys a number of areas related to dissimulation among modern Reformed and "evangelical" Christians -- and how the contemporary rationale for this dissimulation parallels the older arguments covered by Zagorin.)

A Brief Narrative Respecting My Conflicts with FPCR by Kevin Reed (Dated January, 1998, Reed notes, "It is with sadness that I set down the following account. I did not wish to write it. Even after the passage of many years, the fresh recollection of the events described in this narrative evokes grief. I take no pleasure in the ongoing controversy. Nevertheless, recent attacks, issued by persons at First Presbyterian Church of Rowlett [FPCR] (on their church web site) have made this response necessary.")
