With this issue I assume responsibility as editor of C.T. Transition from professor of theology and dean of a seminary to editor of a wide-ranging journal of Christian thought is, I have found, neither easy nor instantaneous; but it certainly is exciting.

In this issue Ed Plowman continues his round-up of news gathered during his recent trip to the Near East and to the Orient. In the last issue he updated the evangelical mission in Thailand and wrote of the renewed concern for Bible study and of the spiritual awakening in some Coptic churches. Next issue we go to Singapore and to what God is doing today in that strategic city of the Far East. The church of God is one, and evangelicals in America share joys and sorrows with brothers and sisters around the world.
