From the editorial:
The most pressing need of the contemporary church is to learn afresh to read and teach the Bible confessionally. As in: this ability is something we once had and have lost. I believe, and these writers help me believe, that the Bible is fully in relationship with us in our present generation and will be in relationship with God’s church for the ages yet to come. Despite our doubts, questions, and frustrations, the living Word of God continues to comfort, challenge, and confront us.
