Agreed Statement on the Separation of the NEW OXFORD REVIEW from the American Church Union


At a special meeting of the governing Council of the American Church Union (ACU) on July 28, 1983, it was decided to separate legally the New Oxford Review from the ACU (theretofore the publisher of the NOR).
