The newest issue of Modern Reformation is now available online. In this year that we’re dedicating to “Recovering Scripture,” we’ve turned in this issue to the topics of inspiration and inerrancy. You won’t want to miss the articles by Michael Horton, Michael Allen, Rick Ritchie, David Wells, Michael Kruger, and Paul Helm. We’re also pleased to feature in this issue a roundtable discussion between Michael Horton, Donald Richmond, and Michael Spencer on some of the problems that evangelicals have with the doctrine of inerrancy. Please remember to pray for Michael Spencer (aka “the Internet Monk“) who is battling cancer and undergoing treatment.
You’ll also notice a new name near the top of our masthead. Dr. Ryan Glomsrud has taken over as the executive editor. For the last three years, I was honored to serve as the executive editor (having previously served as managing editor since 2002). In many way this was a dream come true for me: I began reading Modern Reformation shortly after it began in 1992, and it has been a constant companion on my Reformation journey ever since. But late last year, Michael Horton asked me to help lead the new parent organization of both White Horse Inn and Modern Reformation. So, as of January 1, 2010, I stepped down as executive editor of the magazine and we’ve welcomed Dr. Ryan Glomsrud to the helm.
Dr. Glomsrud is a familiar name to regular readers of the magazine. He has previously served as the book reviews editor and has also contributed several articles to the magazine over the last several years. A graduate of Wheaton College and Westminster Seminary California, Dr. Glomsrud received his D.Phil from Oxford University and is currently a postdoctoral fellow at Harvard University. Dr. Glomsrud joins a distinguished cadre of former executive editors:
- Dr. Benjamin Sasse (former U.S. assistant secretary of health and human services, currently president of Midland Lutheran College in Fremont, Nebraska)
- Dr. Darryl Hart (former director of academic programs at the Intercollegiate Studies Institute, currently writing a global history of Calvinism)
- Dr. Mark Talbot (associate professor of Philosophy at Wheaton College)
We’re pleased that Dr. Glomsrud is joining our team and we know that under his guidance Modern Reformation will continue to develop as the voice for confessional Protestants in American Christianity.
