As you can see from the full-page announcement later in this fascicle, Trinity Journal has finally entered the information super-highway. We now have our own web site, nested within the overall Trinity International University site ( www.tiu.edu/trinj) Information about the journal, subscription rates and procedures, instructions for contributors and advertisers, and sample articles are now available. “Under Construction” is a posting of all journal articles since the new series was initiated in 1980. Users will be able to download (for a fee) any article they want. Current book reviews will also be posted, with a direct link to the Trinity Bookstore if you should want to purchase the volume. We on the editorial board are very pleased to be able to offer this service to our readers and hope that it will be especially useful for overseas subscribers.

This being the case, we request you 1) to pray for us that we might serve the church effectively; and 2) to send our way articles that fit the profile that I have sketched

above. We cannot publish all the articles that are submitted to us; but we are constantly on the lookout for excellent new material.

Serving as models of this kind of article are the contributions in this present fascicle. Carl F. H. Henry is one of the great theological voices of twentieth century evangelicalism. Yet the heritage he has left to the evangelical church is said by many current evangelical theologians to be in need of serious revision. Chad Brand, of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky, defends Henry’s contribution and continuing significance. Ron Diprose, a Trinity graduate who now serves as academic dean of the Italian Bible Institute in Rome, gives us a tantalizing glimpse of some of the conclusions he has reached in his doctoral dissertation on the post-Holocau...
