Jim Rector's magazine

TEXARKANA, Texas--Cornerstone: A Journal of Biblical Research is published by Jim Rector's Cornerstone Publications, 3802 Olive St., Texarkana, Texas 75503, U.S.A.

The March issue's theme is "Where Do We Go From Here?," the second part of a study into the possible meaning and significance of connecting Israel's wilderness experience to the modern era.

"In the first portion, which appeared in the October 1998 issue of Cornerstone, a certain groundwork was laid," said Mr. Rector. "This article builds on that foundation and seeks to deal with specific events that transpired in the original wilderness trek and which may well find their fullest spiritual realization in our lives as believers today."
