This fall book issue is the first shaped by Robert L. Cleath, who recently joined our ranks as editorial assistant. In months to come the book-review section will be supervised by Dr. Cleath, who is abreast of both traditional and contemporary theology.

Many readers are familiar with the series of volumes inaugurated by Contemporary Evangelical Thought, a symposium of chapters by leading scholars of many denominations in many lands. The initial volume was soon followed by Revelation and the Bible, Basic Christian Doctrines, and Christian Faith and Modern Theology. Eerdmans has just published the fifth volume in this symposium series, Jesus of Nazareth: Saviour and Lord. Its sixteen chapters by evangelical giants in America, Australia, England, Germany, and Sweden grapple with issues at the front lines of current theological debate. Whoever thinks evangelicals lack a vigorous challenge to recent options can correct his misimpression by reading this timely symposium.

Now in process of publication is ACHRISTIANITY TODAYAnthology, edited by my colleague Frank E. Gaebelein. This substantial volume contains a selection of significant contributions to CHRISTIANITY TODAY during its first ten years. Included are not only essays but also editorials, news pieces, book reviews, poems, and other features. The publisher is Meredith Press, New York. First copies will be available in late October, although official publication date is February 1.
