2017 Publication Projects Update, April

For 2017, the RTF Australia committee decided to support two of the upcoming titles:
  1. Douglas Milne, “Let's Study Luke” from the Let's Study the Bible series of Banner of Truth.
  2. Abraham Kuyper, Lectures on Calvinism: The Stone Lectures of 1898.
Since January, we were able to engage with Rev Dr Duglas Milne on behalf of RTF Press to write a new preface for the upcoming Chinese translation of his study commentary on Luke's Gospel.  In the new preface, Rev Milne reminded us "the church and Christians will only be strong and effective in their service to Christ only to the extent that they believe God's written word in Scripture", echoing the great truth of Reformation, Sola Scriptura!

With the generous donation received over the months, we are happy to report that we have paid in full for the translation of "Let's Study Luke", due to be published in the third quarter of this year.

In an atheistic country like China, Abraham Kuyper's public theology is extremely important for Christians as a way to live.  If God is present in all arenas of life, then Christians too should be present there. And just as God isn’t passively present in the world, Christians should not be passive either.  Obedience to Christ means joining with Him in His mission to restore his creation.  It means transforming society from the inside.  It means turning oppression into freedom, injustice into justice, hatred into love.*

With this in mind, we are seeking a further 6000 AUD during the course of this year to sponsor the translation of the Stone Lectures into Chinese and its final publication for distribution.

“Continue steadfastly in prayer, being watchful in it with thanksgiving. At the same time, pray also for us, that God may open to us a door for the word, to declare the mystery of Christ, on account of which I am in prison — that I may make it clear, which is how I ought to speak.” (Col 4:2-4)

Reformation Translation Fellowship Australia is a not-for-profit, and as such, we ensure that all finances are invested into fulfilling our goal of promoting the reformed doctrine and literature in the Chinese language, in providing aid for those who translate and publish Reformation Translation Fellowship literature, to distribute such literature for use in China and within the Chinese community here in Australia.

Please consider partnering with us as a long-term partner through donation, yet most importantly in prayers.  Pray that we be faithful to God’s word and that we may help promote Biblical truths within churches and communities.

If you have any questions about where your donations will go, please contact us, and we’ll be happy to answer any query.

We thank you once again for your generosity.
