We at Regent College are proud to present the best of CRUX for the years 1979-89 in this volume. With Heart, Mind & Strength exemplifies what we are trying to do at Regent College -- to give our best, our all, to God.
We have selected essays from the pages of the College journal, written by faculty, alumni and friends, on relevant issues, where the Bible meets today's world. The collection reflects the viewpoints and the wide range of interests we have -- biblical studies, theology, history, spirituality and interdisciplinary matters.
The authors include Klaus Bockmuehl, J.I. Packer, James Houston, Carl E. Armerding, Gordon Fee and W. Ward Gasque -- all well known through their own books, all appreciated by the students at Regent College.
For over twenty years, Regent has been concerned with the equipping of the laity, developing a new generation of thinking and acting Christians. We believe that we will be better able to interact with the modern world for having studied in an open atmosphere of inquiry and reverence.
And for eleven years, the College has published CRUX as its voice, a place where ideas may be put forward for illumination, discussion and correction.
We hope you find these essays to be a help in your own pilgrimage.
