“The disciples were to be ‘witnesses’ for the Lord. What they had seen with their own eyes, and heard with their own ears from the lips of Jesus, was now going to affect their behaviour so powerfully that their lives would never be the same again. So is it like that for us?”
This is the question asked by the first article in the 2019 Special Issue of the Testimony. In May 2019, making it issue number 1049 of volume 89, this special issue was published. Once each year the Testimony editors produce a special issue magazine dedicated to a specific subject. These are not available online, but can be ordered via their and other Christadelphian shops.
In twenty-five full-length articles, written by a wide cross-section of authors from within the Christadelphian Brotherhood, this Special Issue asks us to consider how much our lives are affected by our knowledge of the truth about Jesus.
Part one examines the facts of our belief in the return of our Lord Jesus Christ, with part two emphasising how this belief should be reflected in the way we live.
The Special Issue is aimed to appeal to brothers and sisters of all ages. It runs to 76 pages, roughly equal to two standard monthly issues of the magazine.
Regular subscribers automatically received their copy to cover May and June, but single copies are available for purchase separately. As in previous years, the Special Issue is available in printed and electronic (pdf) formats.
