The latest issue of The Global Anglican has now been posted to subscribers and is available to purchase in our online shop, along with previous issues and subscriptions.

In this edition, editor Peter Jensen addresses some of the ethical considerations around assisted suicide. There are two global perspective pieces, both reflecting on John Stott's contribution to the worldwide church. Ruth Padilla DeBorst, Director of the Comunidad de Estudios
Teológicos Interdisciplinarios in San José, Costa Rica, writes about Stott's commitment to caring for God's world, while Ajith Fernando, teaching director of Youth for Christ in Sri Lanka, reflects on Stott's passion for holding fast to God's word.

The main articles address issues of biblical studies, pastoral theology and historical theology. Craig McCorkindale, who teaches at Phnom Penh Bible School in Cambodia, considers whether 'the wind' in John 3 may be better understood as referring to Christ, rather than the Spirit. George Penk (based in New Zealand) looks at the strengths and weaknesses of receptive ecumenism, as embraced by ARCIC (Anglican-Roman Catholic International Commission). Finally, Jonathan Torrance (Cambridge, UK) examines the role of experience in the formation of theologians, drawn from the work of Martin Luther.

The journal also includes a wide range of book reviews.

Single issues of The Global Anglican are available for £7, while annual subscriptions start at just £19.
