Introduction to a Theological Bulletin
The publication of the Ashland Theological Bulletin marks a new step for Ashland Theological Seminary. It seems appropriate to indicate some of the plans and purposes of this venture with the presentation of the first issue.
The Bulletin is designed to be the voice of Ashland Theological Seminary. As such it will seek to reflect the concerns and emphases of the Seminary. Further, the Bulletin is presented as an instrument for dialogue between the Seminary and its institutional peers, and, as well, between the Seminary and pastors, students, and interested laymen within the Ashland constituency. An additional concern is the promotion of Biblical and theological learning within the broader Seminary community.
The Ashland Theological Bulletin will be published yearly in the beginning. There is the possibility of increasing the frequency of publication in the future. Much of the material for the Bulletin will come from faculty members of the Seminary; however, articles from students, alumni, and friends of the Seminary will occasionally appear in the publication.
Comments and criticisms from friends of the Seminary are invited. These should be addressed to the editor at the Seminary.
