Volume 7 Number 1

Last Updated: Wednesday, 19 February 2014

Welcome to Volume 7.1 of Didache: Faithful Teaching. (June 2007) As we begin our seventh year of electronic publishing we offer a “reprise” of our previous edition as well as new articles on the nature of holiness and community, worthwhile topics for our consideration as faithful educators. The primary content of this edition re-visits the Global Theology Conference held at the deBron conference center in The Netherlands. This edition includes not only conference proceedings but the various responses and plenary addresses either in print or via audio download. It should be noted that many of the responses were to original conference drafts, some of which were re-edited this edition. You will find new revisions by Brower-Latz, McCormick, Manswell, as well as Brower & McEwan. In addition the English translations for Melendez and Julca were revised to improve clarity for our English speaking readers. The new edition includes two excellent student papers by Nell Becker-Sweeden on the dynamics that revolved around the Global Theology conference as well as a poignant treatment on African community life under apartheid by Madela Mashinini. Henry W. Spaulding also offers an intriguing treatment of holiness in dialog with Radical Orthodox theology.
