A New Preus Blogging on BJS and Other Improvements, by Pr. Rossow

The Brothers of John the Steadfast (BJS) started a few years ago with Klemet Preus on our blog roll and now we are pleased to add a fresh, new, young Preus to our Brother’s Cafe. Andrew Preus, nephew of Klemet, a student at St. Catherine’s Seminary (Ontario, Canada) and editor of the student newspaper. His first post will appear today and is appropriately centered on justification, the key doctrine of the faith. Included in his first post is some more biographical stuff.

The young Preus was brought to our attention by Jonathan Fisk of Worldview Everlasting. Fisk has also agreed to serve on the board of directors of BJS which is just one of many changes that will be coming to the brotherhood in the coming year.

Associate Editor Scheer has also been noodling some improvements for BJS. He has been recruiting some additional bloggers so that we can keep our content fresh, rich and coming to you at a brisk pace. In the next few months we will also be reviewing our membership, chapter, and other procedures so that we can better fulfill our goals.

  1. Seminarian Preus’ father’s website (http://christforus.org) has always been a favorite of mine, also hosting papers by his grandfather Dr. Robert Preus.

    Whatever happened to Pr. Klemet Preus? I recall he was involved with Higher Things, wrote a very good book (The Fire and the Staff, CPH) which my congregation bought for our pastor and each of our lay elders, and he then began writing for BJS. Then he vanished from the internet.
