  • Great question, Elizabeth! Over half of the articles in the 2013 edition are completely new, some on topics never covered in the 2010 edition (including higher education, 1,001 new worshiping communities, and a reflection back on 30 years since the reunion of the northern and southern churches). All other content has been updated to reflect changes, including these new terms such as "teaching elders." We are always happy to send a complimentary copy for review as you reflect on whether it'd make sense to order more copies. by Patrick Heery PC(USA) Staff on 08/07/2013 at 10:08 a.m.

  • Is there any difference between this edition and the one published in 2010? We, at the Presbytery of Elizabeth, have bought all of the three editions: Welcome to the Presbyterian Church , What Presbyterians Believe, and What Presbyterians Believe 2; and offer them as a "combo" for $5 to our Congregations. Is there any way to get a free copy of this edition to see what are the differences. Thank you! by Elizabeth Quintero on 08/06/2013 at 3:01 p.m.

  • Friends, we at Presbyterians Today are thrilled you are so interested in the culture section of our special issue. If you would ever like a PDF of any section of any issue, please email and we'll get that to you right away. Thanks! by Patrick Heery PC(USA) Staff on 07/12/2013 at 11:32 a.m.

  • I, too, would love to be able to post the famous Presbyterians & Key Moments in Pres. History, & on our website. How do I get permission? by Rev. Margie Osborn on 07/11/2013 at 10:51 p.m.

  • We all need to be a witnesses for Jesus. Invite all people to come to the Presbiterian Church and save a soul from hell. God will bless you for doing just that. by Herbert on 09/22/2012 at 10:30 a.m.
