The Conrad Grebel Review 28, no. 1 (Winter 2010)

Foreword

In this Conrad Grebel Review (CGR) issue, we are pleased to make available to a wider audience two Benjamin Eby lectures given at Conrad Grebel University College by Professor Marlene Epp in 2008 and by Professor Laura Gray in 2009. Both explore territory that is bound to be new to many readers.

The Article and the Reflection in this issue are provocative in quite different ways, and illustrate the journal’s mandate to offer a forum for “thoughtful, sustained discussion of spirituality, ethics, theology and culture.” The book reviews cover a broad field, surveying recent publications in a range of academic and applied areas. These reviews are now posted on our website.

We must draw readers’ attention to CGR’s new cohort of Consulting Editors (see inside front cover). We offer sincere thanks to members whose terms have concluded, and we welcome new and continuing members. Many of the past members began serving as early as 1983, when CGR began. Their willingness to support a new venture publicly was crucial to the journal’s birth and subsequent growth. With our new Consulting Editors, we have instituted specific terms of service, and we will actively engage them in shaping CGR’s overall direction. We welcome feedback from all our readers in that regard as well.

Upcoming in the next few months are two theme issues, one on Teaching the Bible and the other on “International Justice and Reconciliation: Challenges and Opportunities for the Peace Church Tradition.”
