Ace Appointments And Announcements

Written by Rev. H.A. Bergsma
On October 4, 2004, the Board of the Alliance of Confessing Evangelicals (ACE) (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) appointed new leadership. All of the Alliance's new executive staff are Twin Lakes Fellows. Ligon Duncan is the new president, Mark Dever is vice-chairman of the Council and moderator of the new Alliance forum; Phil Ryken is the Bible teacher for the Alliance's national expository radio program Every Last Word; Rick Phillips will continue to be host of the Philadelphia Conferences on Reformed Theology and will serve as director of Events Planning. Derek Thomas is the new editorial director. ACE has also announced the publication of a major new collaboration on worship, edited by two Council members, with contributions by a number of others. The volume, released Friday, December 12, 2004 is called: Give Praise to God: A Vision for Reforming Worship--Celebrating the Legacy of James Montgomery Boice, Philip G. Ryken, Derek W. H. Thomas and J. Ligon Duncan, editors, published by P & R, Phillipsburg, NJ: 516pp. The contributors to this volume (who come from Baptist, Reformed and Presbyterian backgrounds, embracing such denominations as the PCUSA, URC, PCA, Southern Baptist, and Church of Scotland) share Dr. Boice's burden for the reformation of worship in the various evangelical churches today. The cover and basic information can be seen on their home page, and also under Recent Releases. (From The Christian Observer)

According to Rev. Dr. Iain D. Campbell Minister, Free Church of Scotland, Back, Isle of Lewis, Scotland, this book is "A Reformed view of the various nuances of worship--its place in the Bible, the elements which give it legitimacy, the personal and affective aspects of worshipping God, as well as its place in the history of the church--has been lacking in the literatureÉ It is fitting tribute to the legacy of Jim Boice, and a timely call to the people of God everywhere."
