Grace and Knowledge

A Journal of Judeo-Christian History, Theology and Culture

We began Grace and Knowledge in 1998 as an outreach to our friends in the Worldwide Church of God (WCG), which experienced a period of great upheaval and soul-searching after rejecting exclusivism and embracing the essentials of orthodox Christianity in the 1990s.  The changes in WCG (now Grace Communion International) prompted us to search the scriptures and explore Judeo-Christian history and traditions.   Grace and Knowledge might be described as an ongoing series of progress reports on the results of our search.

In Grace and Knowledge, we discuss basic truths of Christianity. (See for example our series of articles on the Apostles' Creed.)  We also examine the "Jewish roots" of our faith--the rich traditions of biblical Judaism that are the heritage of every believer in Jesus the Messiah.
