The Golden Rule (Journals)
On February 2, 1881 in Portland, Maine, Francis E. Clark and a group of young people at the Williston Congregational Church founded the first group devoted to youth ministry. It was known as the Young People's Society of Christian Endeavor. The movement spread rapidly until by 1908 there were 3.5 million members in over 70,000 societies across the globe. In 1887, The Golden Rule was adopted as the organization's first official publication. From 1891, Amos Wells became the editor. In October of 1897 its name was changed to Christian Endeavor World. The journals republished here represent some of the earliest, most complete resources for people researching this important movement.
The Good Way (Journals)
In 1883, the Church of God (Holiness) was formed from former members of the Methodist Episcopal Church who had been active in the Southwestern Holiness Association. Committed to the doctrine of entire sanctification, the original group of 44 members has expanded to numerous congregations, primarily in Missouri and Kansas, with their headquarters in Overland Park, Kansas. The Good Way was one of their earliest publications until it merged with The Church Witness to become the Church Herald, and later the Church Herald and Holiness Banner. It provides a rare window into the Holiness Movement in the late 19th century. It was published from 1880-1895
The Journal of Inductive Biblical Studies (Journals)
The Journal of Inductive Biblical Studies intends to promote the hermeneutical approach to the study of the Scriptures generally known as Inductive Biblical Studies. By Inductive Biblical Study (IBS) we mean the hermeneutical movement initiated by William Rainey Harper and Wilbert Webster White that was embodied in the curriculum of The Biblical Seminary in New York founded in 1900. This approach had precursors in the history of interpretation and has since the beginning of the twentieth-century enjoyed widespread dissemination, being taught at such institutions as Princeton Theological Seminary, Columbia Theological Seminary, Union Theological Seminary in Virginia, Fuller Theological Seminary, Associated Mennonite Biblical Seminaries, Azusa Pacific University, and Asbury Theological Seminary, as well as hundreds of other institutions and organizations around the world. For more detailed description of IBS, see Bauer and Traina, Inductive Bible Study: A Comprehensive Guide to the Practice of Hermeneutics (Grand Rapids: Baker, 2011) and the IBS website at http://www.inductivebiblicalstudy.com/.
