Twenty Christian leaders met in New York City ten years ago, over Labor Day weekend, and decided that the moment had come to launch a Protestant fortnightly called CHRISTIANITY TODAY. This issue marks the beginning of the magazine’s tenth year. With a press run of just under a quarter of a million copies, CHRISTIANITY TODAY has the largest circulation of any magazine directed to the Protestant clergy. A competent staff, aided by an energetic company of contributing editors and correspondents, has given the magazine international, transdenominational appeal and has made it a sturdy forum supportive of evangelical Christianity.

The pressure of editorial tasks permits the editors to accept only a small number of the many speaking invitations extended by ministerial and campus groups. But such participation invariably involves a stimulating discussion of theological issues. The main editorial on the new morality reflects the contribution made by Assistant Editor James Daane to a spirited dialogue on the campus of Elmhurst College.
