About Pisgah's Outlook Publications
Pisgah's Outlook Publications was started by Jeremy Kerr in 2015 as an effort to publish and distribute Christian literature for the edification of brethren, and for the gathering of God's elect out of the darkness of this present evil age. For many years Jeremy had already facilitated the publishing of literature on behalf of The Covenanted Reformed Presbyterian Church. The initiation of Pisgah's Outlook Publication is intended to continue the same publishing purposes. Our focus is on literature which would be categorized as Covenanter, Presbyterian, or Puritan. Our commitment is to the principles of the Covenanted Reformation (1638-1649) including a complete adherence to the original Westminster Confession of Faith, as it was received by the Church of Scotland during that era. So far we have published many booklets, and a couple paperbacks. We hope to increase the number of paperbacks, and include hardcover books in the future.
Our Founder: Jeremy Kerr
Jeremy was raised attending the mainline Lutheran Church. During high school, his attention was drawn to the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to the study of the Holy Scriptures. For a time he had been fascinated with computer programming, but when the Lord changed his heart, a search for the Truth as it is in Jesus became his new interest. He read Luther's Bondage of the Will and started studying the writings of John Calvin. In the next year, he learned about the Covenanters. Old books, and free literature on the internet were God's tools to help Jeremy, like many others, re-discover the precious truths of the Bible, so much obscured in an age when they are misrepresented and explained away by those who ought to bring Scripture truth into the clearest light.
After a couple decades and more, Jeremy now has a large family dedicated to home-schooling and living by the principles of the Reformation. He enjoys the study of Koine Greek, and can occasionally be found with his family hiking in the forests of South Carolina. Even there, he is likely to have with him a piece of literature or some notes in the Greek New Testament.
Our Company Name
The name “Pisgah” occurs a few times in the Old Testament, referring to various hills or mountains. Perhaps most memorable is the "mountain of Nebo... the top of Pisgah" ascended by Moses just before his death. It was here at the top of Pisgah that Moses was granted the privilege of a miraculous vision of the whole of that land to be inherited by the Lord’s people, which was promised long before to the patriarch Abraham. While others had yet to look forward to many obstacles, and much contending against the peoples of a land given to idolatry and transgression, Moses received a sight of that glorious inheritance the Lord had sworn to deliver, as what really lay beyond all doubt.
In our day, the Christian Church yet looks forward to the accomplishment of that Gospel mission outlined in our Lord's “Great Commission.” We have an eternal rest to inherit, but also a kingdom in this world, (though not of this world,) to see advanced. What we see around us in the present day is sad indeed, but in the study of sound theology, and contemplation of Biblical eschatology, we find ourselves on “Mt. Pisgah” beholding a prospect full of promise and hope.
“But in the last days it shall come to pass, that the mountain of the house of the LORD shall be established in the top of the mountains, and it shall be exalted above the hills; and people shall flow unto it.
“And many nations shall come, and say, Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, and to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for the law shall go forth of Zion, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.
“And he shall judge among many people, and rebuke strong nations afar off; and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up a sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.”
