In this issue of The Baptist Pietist Clarion:
- “What is a Baptist?” In addition to Richard Turnwall’s biographical sketch of early Swedish Baptist leader F. O. Nilsson, the issue’s theme question was answered through shorter pieces by Virgil Olson, John Anderson, and Jim Spickelmier.
- Frequent Clarion contributor Terri Hansen made her first appearance, sharing a sermon on finding grace in adversity and learning to give thanks in all circumstances.
- And G.W. Carlson eulogized his mother, Bernice G. Carlson, the “faithful Baptist saint” to whom this issue was dedicated.
