A godly man and a founder of New Covenant Theology, John G. Reisinger, departed from this world of sin into the bosom of his Savior in heaven, December 27, 2018. I am not the man to write a short bio, for I never knew him. So, I provide links to a couple of sites that include accounts of his life. I can say this, that if Facebook is anything to go by, Reisinger’s writings have been go-to texts for many a NCT follower. Just two days ago I shared NCT with a brother from my (MacArthur) church. It turns out that he was a follower of NCT without knowing it! The book I gave to him to follow through? John G. Reisinger’s Tablets of Stone. I encouraged the brother to read anything by Reisinger. That was the highest praise I could offer of Reisinger. We thank God for brother Reisinger. Pray that his legacy will spread throughout the church and that his family will be comforted in the Holy Spirit.
