The essays in this second issue of the fifth volume of the Bulletin of Ecclesial Theology are drawn from papers read at theological symposia in August 2016, October 2016, and June 2017 hosted by the Center for Pastor Theologians in Oak Park, Illinois. These meetings brought together clergy from various denominational backgrounds within the evangelical Christian tradition to discuss and explore the contemporary debate and discussion on the question of the Historical Adam. Essay contributors in the issue include J. Ryan Davidson, Jonathan Huggins, Michael LeFebvre, Benjamin Petroelje, and Joshua Philpot. Book reviews in this issue will likewise focus both on both contemporary and classic works relating to the Historical Adam, original sin, and theological anthropology.
