Vindication of the Revised Liturgy


Jas. B. Rodgers 1867

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


John Williamson Nevin’s response to J. H. A. Bomberger’s “A History and Criticism of the Ritualistic Movement in the German Reformed Church,” which Nevin considered a politically-fueled attack on the revised liturgy. Finding Bomberger’s review to be “one-sided and unfair and therefore calculated to do much harm in the Church,” Nevin defends, at the request of the church elders, the history and theology behind the new liturgy.

About John Williamson Nevin

John Williamson Nevin (1803–1886) was an American theologian and professor. He studied at Princeton University and was a professor of biblical literature at Western Theological Seminary in Allegheny, Pennsylvania and an ordained minister in the Presbyterian Church. Well-versed in German, he studied contemporary German theologians, and eventually converted to the German Reformed Church, accepting a position at the Church’s seminary in Mercersburg, PA. He and his colleagues developed a conservative doctrinal position eventually labeled the “Mercersburg Theology.”
