"The spirit of cooperation among editors of theological journals is an evidence of the fact that the theological community is a community. We received evidence of this spirit when the editors of fourteen journals promptly and graciously permitted us to reprint material from their pages". -- Acknowledgements.
"The new theologians crowd the barriers where church meets world, and the aim of this collection of fifteen recent articles is to give the curious non-professional a sample of the variety and vitality of current work in the theology and allied fields". -- back cover.
