Periodical Reviews

[Editor’s Note: Dr. James F. Rand, Librarian of Dallas Theological Seminary since 1949, died of a heart attack October 25. His departure into the presence of Christ is a loss not only to Dallas Seminary but also to the readers of Bibliotheca Sacra who profited from his articles and his regular Periodical Reviews

The Christian Reader, October-November, 1963.

Volume 1, Number 1 of this newest effort at a Christian literature reprint digest magazine holds promise of a bright future. Publisher Kenneth N. Taylor and Editor Ted Miller advertise their medium as “interesting, informative, inspirational reading” and the table of contents justifies their statement. Timely, significant articles are included from a wide selection of evangelical periodicals including Bibliotheca Sacra. A preview sampler of the next issue promises a similar fare. Layout, typography, color, and illustrations all reflect tasteful professionalism.

Varied attempts in the past have been made to make a religious reprint digest a paying enterprise. All have sooner or later discontinued publication, including Christian Digest. Yet no time is more opportune for such a venture than now. The ever-increasing proliferation of Christian publications of value both in the United States and throughout the world makes it impossible for the average Christian to purchase or to read more than a small portion of them. Through The Christian Reader he will be able to get the best of them all.

Kac, Arthur W., “The Daniel Case: An Evaluation,” The American Hebrew Christian, Fall, 1963.

World attention has been focused on the refusal of the State of Israel to grant to Oswald Rufeisen (known as Brother Daniel) citizenship on the basis of the Law of Return, because he is a Christian (Roman Catholic). This article is brief, clear, and incisive in making the crux of the refusal the Jewish attitude toward the Lord Jesus Christ. Ironic is the fact that a Jewish atheist will be accepted as a Jew while a Jewish Christian is refused.

Kac points out that the decision of the court has produced considerable disapproval among Jews. A valuable part of this article is a section of testimonies from Hebrew Christians in the State of Israel.
