This volume is entitled - Department of Bible and Spiritual Affairs.
Thus a government Department may attend to sundries, or great things, and it is all in its compass as defined. So in Bible affairs, those of a particularity called the work of the Lord in terms of the word of the Lord, its meaning, message, demands, offers and applications, its teachings and its truth which, though overall and projecting over all and indeed protecting much, is still so often so rejected by so many, that it is made almost to appear like a segment: there are matters arising which need attention.
In this volume, the content is not so much a project, as a repository for things arising for the saving action, teaching and blessed work of the Lord, and for His kingdom biblically defined. And how is it defined ? this is in terms of the Lord Jesus Christ who is its Head, and only entry, its Lord and not its icon but its saviour, for whom and by whose work it has come to be freely available to repentance and the reception of His gift of redemption through His death, and empowerment through His death-vanquishing life. These matters may vary from literally world-shattering items, to the smallest of widow's mites.
In the constitution of this Department, you find words such as those of Romans 10:9, I Corinthians 15:42ff., 57ff., Philippians 2:7-11, Ephesians 1:19-23, 2:1-16, 3:14-21, Colossians 1:16-19, Hebrews 1:1-3, 2:1-3, 9:12-28, 11:1-3, I Timothy 4:1-6, Acts 4:11-12, 20:25-32, Matthew 28:19-20.
As in any Department, the topics in view are many and manifold, varying from faith in James, Hebrews and Paul, to the Westminster Confession in a changing Church, the predictions of Isaiah 9, the Darwin-Hitler tie-up, a Letter to a Grandchild, and on to the teaching of Habakkuk and the nature of suffering and a simple approach to Christian Apologetics.
