Introduction to the Current Issue

The 1980 issue of the Ashland Theological Bulletin is comprised of a single article by Dr. Greg L. Bahnsen, a Scholar-in-Residence at Ashland Theological Seminary for Spring Quarter, 1980. The focus of “The Encounter of Jerusalem with Athens” is the exegesis of Paul’s speech at Athens in Acts 17, and its relationship to Pauline texts (especially Romans 1) with respect to the theme of method in apologetics and witnessing.
