Volume 34, No. 1
With this issue of the JBC, you'll notice a new look. Several of the design elements were used in past JBC designs. By including reminiscences from our past, we sought to represent how we strive for our content to be timeless in nature. Added, modern touches reflect our desire to be timely as we serve God's church in the 21st century. As always, CCEF seeks to provide the same biblical, thoughtful, and practical content that has been a hallmark of the JBC throughout the years. We hope you enjoy the refreshed look!

Or perhaps we’re troubled when we compare the snapshots in our mind with images of family immortalized by Norman Rockwell or the picture we envision of what a “Christian family” is supposed to be. But what are we to make of the fact that in all of Scripture not one single family is held up as an idealized role model? How can that be? Because the Bible is no stranger to the complexities of family.
