The Theological Commission of the World Evangelical Alliance published two new editions of its quarterly Theological News. In the last edition of 2012, the commission welcomes Dr Riad Kassis’ appointment as the upcoming International Director of the International Council for Evangelical Theological Education (ICETE). It also features reports from four continents, e.g. on the Baptist World Alliance Annual Gathering in Chile, on the Consultation of Scripture of the Asia Theological Association, on the biennial conference of the Fellowship of European Evangelical Theologians, on Bethlehem Bible College, and on Africa International University.
The first edition of 2013 features the text “Evangelism: The Hallmark of Evangelical Faith” drafted by the Theological Commission to encourage discussion in the lead up to the General assembly of WEA in Seoul 2014. The text was read by the Secretary General of WEA, Geoff Tunnicliffe, to the Pope and the 250 delegates of the Vatican Synod.
