Overview

Journal of Modern Ministry covers a wide spectrum of topics that are applicable to scholars, pastors, and anyone wishing to pursue good Christian living. Highly accessible to all, this journal contains practical information on all aspects of life, as well as a vast array of theological materials. Counseling, pastoral care, parenting, family life, book reviews, and medicine are just a few of the subjects covered in the seventeen issues.

Founded by senior writer Dr. Jay Adams, the Journal of Modern Ministry was first published in May 2004 with two issues, and continued in 2006 with three issues planned each year. Kevin Backus is the General Editor, and the section editors include John Street, Robert J. Burrelli, Jr., Lou Priolo, Bill Slattery, Steve Vogel M.D., Kurt Goedelman, and Donn Arms. This extraordinary group of ministering author-editors also solicits articles from the finest men known today for their uncompromising biblical emphasis, and receive from lesser known writers articles they believe worthy of publication.

Now you can have all seventeen issues of Journal of Modern Ministry from the years 2004 to 2009 available at the click of a mouse! You will no longer need to search hundreds of pages of print to find an article on the topic you were looking for, because Logos Bible Software will do the work for you instantaneously.
