Once again we present our annual Spring Book Forecast to give our readers an overview of the religious publishing field and to put them on the lookout for volumes that may be of special interest to them. Many of the spring titles focus on the host of problems and issues confronting both Church and society; we hope evangelicals will come forth with solid contributions in this area. Only time will tell whether promising titles can deliver the goods in content. As in the past we have asked publishers to designate what they feel will be their most significant publications; these selections are indicated by an asterisk. We have used the symbols (p) to indicate paperbacks and (rp) to designate out-of-print books that are being reissued.
