This is a touching remembrance of one of the founders of the Living Pulpit, who died at age 85. Bob was a true visionary and a consummate businessperson with a razor sharp mind, a true understanding of human nature, a gift for organization, and the ability to peer beyond the horizon to recognize trends and opportunities before others saw them. Bob did not do things by halves and so when he was building support for an innovative ecumenical preaching journal his enthusiasm was contagious and his personal commitment to the success of the project at hand was incontrovertible.

I am delighted to invite you to this new issue of The Living Pulpit that focuses on the resurrection. As many of our readers know, The Living Pulpit devoted a past issue to Easter, and many would fondly remember it. The current issue is not a reprint. It is a totally new edition with feature articles freshly written by biblical scholars, church leaders, preachers, and a rabbi.

By the end of 2012 we expect to see The Living Pulpit back up and running with four issues a year as an online journal that is both in a web format and in .pdf for download and printing. We have a new web team in place and plan to offer new resources online such as a lectionary section with fresh and relevant biblical exegesis and a place for comments from readers.

The feature articles are based on the presentations delivered in the Annual New York Theological Seminary Conference held on Oct. 17, 2011. The banner theme of the conference was Bible Engagement. Presenters challenged the churches to engage the Bible in their mission, and their contribution has been revised to speak to the immediate needs of our readers and audience. These articles will point us in the direction of empowerment that comes from the word of the Lord in the Bible.
