RPTS Press Releases Collection of Sermons by 19th Century RPTS Graduate and RPCNA Pastor as Part of Bicentennial
Pittsburgh, August 23, 2010 – Through the generosity of an RPTS friend, the Reformed Presbyterian Theological Seminary (RPTS) has announced plans to endow its first professorship, the Ruther Hargrave Chair of Pastoral Theology, named in honor of a pastor who served his Ohio church in the Reformed Presbyterian Church of North America (RPCNA) for nearly four decades. Dr. R. Stanley Rutherford of Geneseo, NY, the great-nephew of Rev. Hargrave, has committed to funding the chair along with the publishing of a book through the Alliance of Confessing Evangelicals of his uncle’s sermons, which he personally preserved and selected.
The book, entitled Preaching with Eyes for the Kingdom, is a collection of 15 sermons by Dr. Hargrave from the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Dr. Rutherford is having a copy mailed to each RPCNA church library.
“The sermons demonstrate Rev. Hargrave’s eyes for the Kingdom of Christ advancing toward its full consummation on the Last Day,” said RPTS President Dr. Jerry O’Neill. “You will see that he yearned for his heavenly home and longed for his people to be similarly focused in their souls and lives.”
Rev. Hargrave graduated from RPTS in 1886 and served the United Miami RPCNA congregation in Ohio for nearly four decades.
