Jeff Robinson introduces the summer 2008 issue of the Southern Baptist Journal of Theology (SBJT):
Should historical amnesia be an option for the average Christian?
Knowing church history, particularly as it relates to the early years of Christianity and the theological issues which faced leaders in that age is important for all believers, essayists in the summer edition of the Southern Baptist Journal of Theology argue. The latest SBJT examines the early church and encourages Christians to learn from important church fathers such as Athanasius, Augustine and Irenaeus.
