The Committee for the Historian this week published a book that we hope will encourage the faithful men and women in the OPC. Choosing the Good Portion: Women of the Orthodox Presbyterian Church shares the lives of more than ninety women who have served in the OPC since its beginning. Their stories flesh out what God has done in the OPC over the last 80-years. This book is available on the OPC Publications page under Historical Books. It’s the perfect gift for all ages.
