Credo in 2012
By Matthew Barrett –
It has been a joy to see Credo Magazine take shape these past six months. But you may be wondering, what will Credo Magazine offer this coming year, 2012? Here is a sneak preview at what you have to look forward to:
As you may know by now, Credo Magazine is published once every two months. So in 2012 you can expect six more issues. We will begin the year with “In Christ Alone.” Here is the blurb:
Can those who have never heard the gospel of Christ be saved? Will everyone be saved in the end or will some spend an eternity in hell? The January issue of Credo argues that it is only if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, that you will be saved (Rom 10:9). Contributors include David Wells, Robert Peterson, Michael Horton, Gerald Bray, Todd Miles, Todd Borger, Ardel Caneday, Nathan Finn, Michael Reeves, Trevin Wax, Timothy Beougher, and many others.
You can expect this issue to release the second week of January (view cover and contents here). And the next two weeks will feature more book giveaways as well!
While we don’t want to give too much away too soon, future issues of Credo will concentrate on topics like missions, Calvinism, the historical Adam, Old Princeton, etc. We have some excellent pastors and scholars scheduled to contribute to these future topics.
Though we cannot give you a date as to when, be on the lookout for the beginnings of a regular podcast on the Credo website. This podcast will zero in on some of the most important issues of our day and will feature many visiting guests who are experts in their disciplines. More details on this to come! In the meantime be sure to look at the media interviews available already on the Credo website. In the near future we will release an interview with Bruce Ware on evangelicalism and another with Michael A.G. Haykin on the church fathers.
The Blog and Reviews
One of the treats of the Credo website is the daily blog. If you have not been with us, we have articles posted each day by various pastors, students, and scholars. Additionally, we have our regular weekly bloggers which include: Thomas Schreiner, Paul Helm, Fred Zaspel, Nathan Finn, A. B. Caneday, Michael A.G. Haykin, Matthew Barrett, and Luke Stamps. For example, this week you may be interested in reading:
Calvinism and the Warning Passages: A Brief Reply to Scot McNight, by Thomas Schreiner
Two Approaches to the Incarnation, by Paul Helm
Doctrine vs. Jesus? By Fred Zaspel
You can expect more good articles from our weekly bloggers in 2012.
Also be sure to look at the “Reviews” page where each week reviews of the most recent books are posted.
Besides the featured interviews in each issue of Credo Magazine (this January’s issue will feature David Wells and Robert Peterson), we also post interviews on the blog. Many of these interviews are with authors on their new books. This past year we have made a number of interviews available. Most recently you may be interested in reading: Michael Horton on For Calvinism, Roger Olson on Against Calvinism, and Fred Zaspel on B. B. Warfield.
In the upcoming weeks of January we will also post interviews with: Todd Billings on Union with Christ and Sean Michael Lucas on Jonathan Edwards.
Our hope and aim in all of this of course is to magnify and glorify God. And in doing so we hope that you and your church are encouraged and equipped in the doctrines of the Christian faith (find out more about Credo’s theological orientation here).
