From the Editor

Merry Christmas! Or “Happy Christmas!” for those in the lands of British English. Very soon those words will be in season. With the season comes the custom of exchanging gifts. Here’s a suggestion: Give Trinity Journal!

This edition contains reply cards to mail in for that purpose. Even easier: Go to and use your credit card. Most of us know of a church library, a public library, a pastor or deacon, a friend, or a student who would appreciate receiving the journal.

We would love to see the ministry of our articles and numerous book reviews expand. Please consider multiplying the benefit of a journal whose mission is clear and, we believe, seeks to glorify God (see our web site: ):

Trinity Journal serves the worldwide church by making available to pastors, scholars, missionaries, and interested Christian lay people the latest in evangelical scholarship. Articles deal both with the latest theological and pastoral issues and with matters of timeless significance to Christians.

Permit me to underscore what a bargain Trinity Journal is. The issue you are holding is something like 160 pages. At a copy center in the US you will probably pay something like eight cents to copy one page. To copy 160 pages would cost $12.80. If you subscribe at $18 per year, you are paying $9 for this issue. You are receiving published scholarship delivered to your mailbox below the cost of photocopies.

On top of that, consider that a gift subscription for two issues is just $15. At that rate, one issue is very nearly free.

The editor rests his case. Thank you for your response and support.

This issue’s book review section, under Eckhard Schnabel’s capable oversight, performs its usual valuable function of helping readers track where discussion is heading, and alerting readers to new books they may want to get hold of for the sake of professional responsibilities or personal interests (or perhaps to put on your own Christmas wish list).
