In this issue John Huffman has a word on what we can learn from Watergate; Editor-at-large Edwin Yamauchi begins a two-part substantive article on the resurrection; Norman Hope asks whether Nicodemus was a coward; and Associate Editor Harold Brown tackles the question, “When does the portrayal of evil become participation in it?”

As a former professor of missions I find the article by Donald Hoke and the lead editorial, both on the upcoming Lausanne congress, and also the charts of North American missionary outreach in another editorial, right in rhythm with my own heartbeat. I believe with all my mind and heart that the primary business of the Church and every Christian is to take the Gospel of Jesus Christ to every creature. And we can do it, no matter how dark and difficult the day, if we are willing to go, give, and pray. My prayer is: “God, awaken your Church and send your people to the ends of the earth with the Gospel.”
