In this issue of The Baptist Pietist Clarion:
- Vic Winquist identified four ways in which religious liberty runs through the Bible, and Dwight Jessup expanded on the Baptist commitment to religious liberty and the separation of church and state by recounting the connections between the BGC/Bethel and the Baptist Joint Committee (BJC, on whose board he and Winquist had served).
- C. Emanuel Carlson and Walfred Peterson, two long-serving Bethel professors who later worked at the BJC, were paid tribute by G.W. Carlson, Elving Anderson, and John Anderson.
- Ron Saari reflected on generosity as a central value of the Kingdom of God.
- For the first time, some of the earlier, Swedish-language poems of Signe Olson Peterson were published, thanks to the translation efforts of Tom Coleman.
