I really appreciate the series y’all are doing on Machen guys. Keep it up. With things winding down for the summer here at Southern Seminary, it’s a blessing to be able to “sit in” on some edifying and challenging classes through the podcasts — but this time the classes are free!

I second BH. I’ve said it before, but I do really appreciate you preserving and sharing this Camden. And thanks Dr. Hart!

Where does one find the article Dr. Hart reads from entitled “Responsibility of the Church in Out New Age”? I goggled it and see that I can purchase it through JSTOR for $19. I also searched the OPC website for it and could not find it. Can you get it for free anywhere? If not, where is the OPC version available for purchase?

It’s also on p. 364 of his Shorter Writings.

hey, professor Hart, this is Bob Fu, a WTS PhD candidate. I am writing my dissertation reg church-state relations and found you lectured this topic on Machen’s view at “The Fight Against Tyranny.” Where can I find your text of the lecture so that I can put it as a reference? thank you.

To my knowledge there is no written version of the lecture. There is a standard citation format for lectures. Perhaps you could do that.
