Foundation is a collection of articles dealing with the subject of Holy Scripture: even that title for God's special revelation sounds a little quaint today, in this era of "user-friendly bibles," "inclusive language editions," and other abuses of the Word of God. A bygone age was a better age however: for all the sales pitches and gimmicks of the version-mongers, we have the distinct impression that there is a growing famine of "hearing the words of the LORD" in the land (Amos 8:11); the pure preaching of the gospel is linked to the circulation of pure translations of the Word.
