The journal has been published constantly over the years since 1958 when as the "Bulletin of the ..." it was original issued as a single article. This was Ned B. Stonehouse's (of Westminster Theological Seminary) notable presidential address to the society's annual meeting, entitled "The Infallibility of Scripture and Evangelical Progress."[1] In 1969 the publication took the current name as "Journal ..." and had grown considerably larger both in terms of circulation and page count.[1]
