This document is a form of a FAQ. The issues are delineated in seven categories: History, Rationale, Structure, Process, Hermeneutics, Distinctives and Ethos, Slippery Slope. Under each category, some of the items are stand-alone, while other items build on one another. All points under each of the categories are in some way cumulative in an attempt to respond to questions in a statement form.
