...committed to a common work within the shared Christian doctrinal and moral tradition rooted in the Christian Scriptures. So we continue to use "mere Christianity" and "ecumenical orthodoxy" as handles for our core commitments. ....It is a magazine of what I have called "honest ecumenism" with contributions from those belonging to a variety of Christian traditions: Evangelical, Catholic and Orthodox.

A few articles from each issue are made available online. This anniversary issue includes, along with much else, an article by Russell D. Moore, Dean of the School of Theology at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, about closed communion: "Table Manners."
