This is the second of our special issues for the current volume-year. It is devoted to the truth of God’s covenant. As you will discover in the process of reading, however, this issue is by no means simply doctrinal in its contents; but it includes articles of a so-called “practical” nature, that is, articles which deal with the implications of the truth of God’s covenant for our life as God’s covenant people in the midst of the world. 

There is another special feature of this issue. It includes an article written for and to our covenant children. We suggest that parents read this article with (or to) their children.

The staff’s sub-committee for special issues thanks all those who helped prepare this issue.
