David Andrew is the Editor of Sword, an evangelical magazine which seeks to ‘restore the confidence of God’s people in the Word of God and the God of the Word’. He maintains that “…if God has put it on His page, we need to do something with it. There is no redundant Scripture. Only a whole Bible provides the whole truth.” A decade in editorial journalism with multinational engineering companies gradually fused with Christian ministry as David’s two pastoral charges, one Congregational, one independent, led him to accept the invitation to join Dr Clifford Hill in Bedford as Managing Editor of what was then Prophecy Today magazine. In 2003, David followed Cliff as Editor and, upon moving back to Scotland in 2004 to support an elderly mother, subsequently re-branded the magazine as Sword to reflect a perceived need to combat growing apostasy and encourage in the church a high view of God’s Word – a significant direction change from the previous focus on the ‘state of the nation’.David and his wife Agnes are members of Bellshill Baptist Church and live in Lanarkshire. Frequent preaching and conference speaking enable him to keep the magazine ‘earthed’ in the wider Christian community. They have two daughters, one married and three grandchildren. He holds an honours degree in theology from Edinburgh and a distinction level qualification in English Language teaching from St Andrews. Family life and music easily account for any leisure time.
