Commentary: Winter 2016-17

Welcome to the Winter 2016-17 edition of Commentary, the twice-yearly magazine of Oak Hill, exploring a wide range of cultural, ethical and theological issues in the light of biblical teaching. Please read the magazine above (the 'Click to read' link opens Commentary in full-screen), or download the whole magazine using the link on the right. To comment on any particular article, or on the magazine as a whole, please go here.

This edition focuses on the Reformation, which has its 500th anniversary in 2017. Matthew Barrett asks whether the Reformation was simply a giant misunderstanding, while Ray Porter examines whether world mission was a blind spot for John Calvin and the other Reformers. Mike Ovey asks the question, 'What reformation would we stand for today?' and Robert Scott looks at claims that Islam needs a reformation of its own.

Other features explore a theology of migration, responses to the issue of transgender, why we make promises, and biblical ethics surrounding the screening of unborn children.
