Our next issue marks the tenth anniversary of the Global Journal: tempus doth indeed fugit!
The lead article, by Dr Daniel R. Heimbach — a distinguished previous contributor — is titled, “The Problem with Assessing Torture.” By a careful study of this paper, readers will be able to wrestle with a contemporary ethical issue of great importance vis-à-vis the war against terrorism. Your editor will have some remarks on the subject as well in his introductory “Note” to the next issue.
Vol. 10, No. 1 will also feature Willie Honeycutt’s “Analysis and Appraisal of the Exclusivist Claims of Hinduism, Buddhism and Christianity” — refuting the commonly-held fallacy that Hinduism and Buddhism are “open” religions in contrast to exclusivist biblical Christianity. Finally, Daniel Janosik will provide an historical essay on one of the most fundamental distinctions between Christian doctrine and Muslim beliefs: “John of Damascus’ Response to the Islamic View of Justification by Works.”
Raise a glass when the next issue goes to press (even though, if you are Baptist, your glass may contain only grape juice . . .).
