Modern philosophers of history think the French Revolution triggered the crisis of the West, whereas the early Christians saw in the resurrection of Jesus Christ a divine declaration of the final and imminent crisis of all history.
In the aftermath of Dr. J. N. D. Anderson’s presentation (last issue) of evidence for the bodily resurrection of Jesus, three professors enter the debate with a variety of questions and comments. And, at my request, Dr. Clark Pinnock of New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary offers an overcomment on the entire discussion.
Soon we will lose a gifted staff member, Dr. James Boice, whose evangelical insight at theological frontiers has made him a highly valued colleague. Philadelphia’s historic Tenth Presbyterian Church—its pulpit made famous by the late Donald Grey Barnhouse—is enlisting Jim’s expository gifts for its inner-city ministry. He leaves us at month-end, and the good wishes and affection of the staff follow him.
The editorial pages this issue include, under the title “The Power of Christ’s Resurrection,” some excerpts from Assistant Editor Robert Cleath’s Easter message to the First Presbyterian Church of Perry, Oklahoma.1
