Just finished the Winter 2012 issue of the Areopagus Journal which is published by the Apologetics Resource Center (link on the right side of this page). I have subscribed to their journal for a number of years. Each issue is devoted to a single subject. In the case of the Winter 2012 issue the subject is “Lost Christianities”. This issue answers the critics that say that what we today recognize as orthodox Christianity is really something one or a few people concocted in the third or fourth century, think Elaine Pagels or Bart Ehrman. After an introduction by Craig Branch we have three articles. First is “Was Orthodoxy an Historical Invention by Robert W. Yarbrough. Second is an article by Darrell L. Bock titled “What Did the Early Christians Believe?”. Finally Robert M. Bowman Jr. writes an article titled “Who Were the Ebionites and the Gnostics.
I enjoyed each article and recommend the Journal. Now just one caution, they are a bit slow getting the Journals out and sometime fall a few months behind but I have received every issue on my subscription. They also have topical bundles you can purchase such as Cults and the Bible Bundle. Still anyone interested in apologetics will find the Areopagus Journal worthwhile.
Have a blessed day,
