Standing Against Tyranny: The Life and Legacy of Arthur Perkins

"Brian DeJong speaks about his biography of Arthur Franklin Perkins, a Presbyterian minister serving in Merrill, Wisconsin in the 1920's and 1930's. For his bold stand for truth, and against error and unbelief, Perkins was persecuted and prosecuted by his own Presbytery. Leaving the PCUSA in 1936, he became a constituting member of the Orthodox Presbyterian Church and the convener and first moderator of its Presbytery of Wisconsin and Upper Michigan. After suffering a nervous breakdown, he died on December 29, 1936. This is his tragic and triumphant story about standing against tyranny in his day and age. 00:07 Introduction 03:08 Resources on Machen 06:24 Presbyterians in Wisconsin 13:00 Introduction to Arthur Perkins 19:00 Crescent Lake Bible Camp 24:35 The Nature of Church Power 30:02 Correspondence with Machen 33:52 Community Presbyterian Church in Merrill, Wisconsin 37:16 Perkins' Health and Eventual Death 43:09 How to Get a Copy 47:50 Conclusion" from video introduction
