Twice a year—in spring and fall—CHRISTIANITY TODAY presents a special religious book number. Supervision of these issues has been the special task of Dr. James Daane, whose related duties include the book forecast, fortnightly assignments of reviews, and other issue-to-issue editorial work. Before Dr. Daane joined us in 1961, he had lectured at Fuller Theological Seminary, in addition to being pastor of the First Christian Reformed Church of Los Angeles. It is not wholly a surprise, therefore, that the seminary has now invited him to return next fall to direct a recently launched pastoral doctorate program.

Dr. Daane’s editorial duties with CHRISTIANITY TODAY will continue into the summer.

An Eerdmans paperback, The Anatomy of Anti-Semitism, reprints some of the essays Dr. Daane has contributed to these pages. Not modesty alone but a hard-and-fast ban on devoting our limited review space to paperbacks recently ruled out more than a bare listing of this book. Thus his own work fell victim to his stringent rule. Many well-wishers—we among them—are pleased that his writing is attracting wider interest. But before Dr. Daane turns west, he plans to travel east. This summer he will fulfill a long-postponed ambition by taking a trip to the Holy Land. Whether from east or west, we hope periodically to carry more penetrating writings of his, and we congratulate him on his new opportunity for service.
