Visit the New Place for Truth

PfT 600 px wide.png
The Alliance of Confessing Evangelicals is pleased to share with you the new and improved Place for Truth. Be sure to stop by and subscribe. Those already familiar with Place for Truth will immediately notice the improved design. We have made searching for articles and podcasts much easier by including an extensive archive of contributors and topics, and an improved search function has been added.

Two years ago the Alliance launched Place for Truth. As editor Jonathan Master stated in his inaugural post, this online magazine was seen "as a chance to stop and think - to think theologically, to think in terms of our Protestant confessional tradition, to think about the ways and means of engaging in gospel ministry today." 

The mission statement says it well, Place for Truth provides thoughtful yet accessible articles ranging over biblical theology, systematic theology, church history, and practical theology emphasizing the continual need for the church to maintain the gains of the Protestant Reformation.

In 2014 the Theology on the Go podcast was added to the site. On Theology on the Go you will hear pastors and theologians discuss weighty topics with host Jonathan Master in a thoughtful and accessible way showing how theology is relevant today.

This week on Theology on the Go, Jonathan Master is joined by Greg Beale, professor of New Testament and Biblical Theology at Westminster Theological Seminary in Philadelphia. Dr. Beale talks with Jonathan about the important topic of "The New Testament's Use of the Old Testament."

The Alliance has several copies of Dr. Beale's book Handbook on the New Testament Use of the Old Testament to give away. This concise guide helps readers understand how to better study the multitude of Old Testament references in the New Testament. Brief enough to be accessible yet thorough enough to be useful, this handbook will be a trusted guide for all students of the Bible. Sign up to be in our drawing.

Countryside RESIZED_3.jpeg

If grace is preached in our biblically-sound churches, then why does it seem like such a hard concept to grasp? Why do we feel like we still need to work towards God's favor? Why do we sometimes feel like He is disappointed in us? 

If Grace Is So Amazing, Then Why Do We Struggle With It?

James Rich talks about the centrality of grace in the Christian life. He points out that it seems Christians struggle somewhat to understand exactly what it is and how it operates. To demonstrate this misunderstanding, he offers a quick quiz: "True or false; we are saved by faith." Sounds insultingly easy, doesn't it? But if you answered... Continue reading

Grace that Instructs
Contributor, Jeffrey Stivason, remembers a  a well-known figure of the Counter-Reformation. He was Pope Clement VIII's personal theologian and in 1930 he was canonized and consequently named a Doctor of the Church. Protestants often reflect on the Reformation as the time in which the doctrine of justification was once again restored to a Biblical foundation. However, according to Bellarmine, the greatest error of Protestantism was not its doctrine of justification...Continue reading

The Heartbeat of Reformed Christianity
What does it mean to be 'Reformed'? Different things for different people, to be sure! For Arminian Dispensationalists it is an anathema. For some secular observers, it is the religious equivalent of being to the right of Genghis Khan. But even for those who call themselves 'Reformed' there is quite a spectrum of views. Contributor, Mark Johnston, looks at what Calvin has to say about what it means to be Reformed... Continue reading

Vos 121
Contributor David Garner,, talks about an exclusive group of writings that rises to the level of "must read once a year" for him. One of them is Geerhardus Vos' inaugural lecture to his new post as Professor of biblical Theology at Princeton on May 8, 1894. Today's 121st anniversary of that lecture warrants remembering some of Vos' fruitful insights..." Continue reading
