Kerux Incorporated was founded in 1986 at Escondido, California. The name of the corporation is derived from the Greek word for "herald," "proclaimer," "preacher." Chartered by the State of California as a nonprofit educational corporation, Kerux, Inc. promotes the preaching, teaching, exposition and reflection on the word of God through sermons, biblical expositions and book reviews.
The primary vehicle for achieving the goals of the corporation is the journal "Kerux: The Journal of Northwest Theological Seminary." This journal prints biblical-theological material in the Reformed/Calvinistic tradition. Geerhardus Vos (1862-1949), Professor of Biblical Theology at Princeton Theological Seminary from 1893-1932, was the founding father of Reformed Biblical Theology. His books, articles, sermons, and poetry describe the fundamental principles of the Reformed biblical theological method. All contemporary practitioners of a genuine Reformed Biblical Theology owe an inestimable debt to Vos.
