Perhaps something fair-minded know it all will like.

I chanced upon this the other day.

It is a blog by some Presbyterians called "Old Life."  I didn't look over a whole lot of it, but the little I did see looked good.

As I believe fair-minded is a Presbyterian, he might be interested.

From the blog description:

"Throughout most of American Presbyterian history, the prevalent assumption has been that old things are dead and new things are vital and alive. Generally speaking, this was an important dynamic in the controversies between the Old and New Side Presbyterians of the colonial era, and the Old and New School Presbyterians of the nineteenth century.
Oldlife.org challenges this assumption partly because it seems patently disadvantageous for Reformed Protestants to make it. The Reformed faith may not be as old as Rome or Constantinople, but its most reliable guideposts are—to put it bluntly—old. At the same time, many Reformed Protestants consider themselves conservative, a disposition that is also oriented to the past and conserving as much of it as possible. Old life indicates that the old things are actually valuable and capable of sustaining authentic Christian faith, and that historic Reformed Protestantism specifically embodies a piety as vigorous and alive as any of its rivals.
The Old Life Theological Society has existed for over a decade, the creation of D. G. Hart and John R. Muether. Its aim has been to point the way back to the health and vigor of historic Reformed Protestantism. The Society is the sponsor of the Nicotine Theological Journal, a quarterly dedicated to Reformed faith and practice. The idea behind the NTJ was clear in our first editorial. Although the editors, Muether and Hart, are known to enjoy a good cigar and even to smoke bad ones, they remain convinced that you don’t have to smoke to get the NTJ."

Thanks Frank, nice blog, will check it out.. I'm not Presbyterian but some of my favorite Theologians are amongst them. I'm a Calvinist but technically not "Reformed", since being Reformed technically means you must sign of on every jot and tittle of one of their historic confessions.

I see, well, hope you enjoy the blog.

So, what exact church do you attend, if you don't mind my asking?

No I don't mind at all.  It's a local, independent, credo-baptist Church.. Calvinistic (Biblical) in our theology, anthropology and soteriology.. Here's a link: Crossway Church of Keene
