Editors Introduction (Jan 2009)

(Dean Blevins) Greetings and welcome to Didache: Faithful Teaching edition 8:2 (January 2009). This edition incorporates a wealth of theological, cultural and educational treatments that intersect with a broad readership. This edition begins with specific treatments in theological and philosophical treatments within a Wesley perspective as well as a marvelous treatment within the history of the Church of the Nazarene. The edition then turns to several interesting treatments of issues in global education. Henry Spaulding begins the edition with a critical and constructive conversation between Wesleyan theology and Radical orthodoxy, addressing areas of mutual critique and resource while addressing contemporary struggles with nihilism. Bryan Williams’ presidential address to the Wesleyan Philosophical Society (published in cooperation of the WPS) also seeks a comprehensive approach to engage issues of theology, philosophy and science within a Wesleyan framework.  We wish to express our appreciation to the WPS, who consistently encourages ongoing dialog between Wesleyan thought and contemporary philosophy. To find out more about the WPS please see their website http://home.snu.edu/~brint/wpsjnl/ . Brandon Winstead’s review of the documentary history of the Gulf Century District provides an invaluable resource for future studies in the African American history within the Church of the Nazarene. Utilizing historical methods reminiscent of other Black church studies, Winstead chronicles thematic issues within this movement.
