Africa in the Bible Crusade (January 1969)

IT IS an accepted fact that the Holy Scriptures belong to the whole of the human family. But does each tribe, nation, and continent cherish a sense of belonging to the Word of God? Africans came in direct contact with the Bible in the days of colonization, when Western powers imported the Sacred Book to their lands as a stabilizing factor. It should not therefore surprise any Westerner to meet honest persons in this vast continent who, in their subconscious, regard the Bible as the Book of the white man. . .

Paul and the law (September 1985)

Paul's apparently contradictory statements about the law can be explained by distinguishing between his moral and soteriological usages of the law in his writings. He rejected the law as a method of salvation but upheld it as, a moral standard of Christian conduct.

Rome: an early persecutor of the church? (December 1982)

Christians have traditionally believed that Roman persecution of the church began soon after Christ left this earth. However, another look at the evidence suggests that Christians in the first century were relatively free from persecution by the Romans; it was the Jews who treated them with contempt. In fact, the restraining influence of Stoicism may have caused the Romans to protect the infant Christian church.
