A Word About Waldenström (Fall 1987)
Since the first issue of Pietisten was published in the summer of 1986, one of our foci has been and will continue to be Biblical text . As a regular source of commentary we have been using the work of P.P. Waldenström. While he is familiar to many students of pietism, some of you may not be aware of his history and of hi s special association with this journal. Here is a brief biography.
The Other Stanzas of "Children of the Heavenly Father" (Spring 1988)
At a Conventicle meeting this winter, Ethel Palmberg, a student at North Park Commercial Academy during the years 1920-22 and at North Park Academy 1927-29, called to our attention that there was a 6th verse to Lina Sandell's song "Children of the Heavenly Father."

The Sermon and Its Content (Summer 1989)
A sermon is an announcement of a new time. The suspense is not so much between "a then" and "a now," as it is between "an already now" and "a not quite yet." The time is at hand, God's kingdom is near.

A Visit Home (Fall 1989)
From time to time we all need to "go back home" and check out our roots — that special place that had been such an important part of our lives — and, perhaps, continues to be. But not just the place, also the people who were an important part of our formative years. It was my privilege this past summer to journey home to renew my connections with relatives and friends.
