The face of the world is changing daily, as evidenced by recent events in such places as Eastern Europe and South Africa. In some of these changes, the Church or individual Christians have taken an active role, seeking to personally and corporately embody Christ’s exhortation to be salt and light.

The Church, your church, and individual Christians also need to be in the forefront of positive change and the advancement of God’s kingdom more locally. We pray that this collection of articles and reviews may encourage and inspire each reader to seek ways in which they too are being called to be salt and light.

We especially welcome to this issue Dr. James I. Packer of Regent College whose Fall Lecture Series on the theology of preaching challenged those who attended. We thank him for allowing us to present here the content of two of his addresses. We also thank faculty, students and friends of Ashland Theological Seminary for their contributions.

David W. Baker July, 1990
