Among my New Year’s resolutions is one for fuller involvement at the frontiers of the current theologycrisis. The case for theism—or for the reality of God in modern life—is now “up for grabs,” and it would be high treason for evangelical Christians to keep their silence when Altizer, Braun, Cox, Dewart, Robinson, Van Buren—indeeed, an entire modern alphabet of speculative theologians—are now taking to the field aggressively. I have therefore decided to relinquish the editorship of CHRISTIANITY TODAY—with its necessary inroads on research time—and to give these next years to theological research and writing.
The July 5 issue will be the last for which I am to bear editorial responsibility, and it will signal my greater freedom for creative work. Besides other possibilities, I am considering an invitation by the Board of CHRISTIANITY TODAY to continue in a loose editor-at-large arrangement and receive a temporary, limited research grant in the area of current theological developments. The Board will soon announce a new editor.
To many whose faithful prayers have encouraged me in these years as editor, a heartfelt thank you, I covet your continued support for the members of our effectively trained and experienced journalistic staff, that CHRISTIANITY TODAY may always bear the stamp of God’s approval.1
