I am happy to announce the appointment of Melvin J. Sorenson as general manager of CHRISTIANITY TODAY beginning June 1.

Mel is an accounting-management graduate of the University of Illinois and has logged many years in business. He spent thirteen years with Christian Life Publications as vice-president, publisher, and secretary of the corporation. His earliest work was with R. R. Donnelley printing company in Chicago. He comes to CHRISTIANITY TODAY from Compassion, which has a notable ministry around the world in providing homes for orphans and other needy children. We welcome him to his new assignment.

Please keep praying for the International Congress on World Evangelization, to be held in July at Lausanne. At a time when one government after another has toppled and world inflation as well as shortages begin to exact an almost intolerable price, God’s people must be challenged to finish the task of making the Gospel available to every person in the world.
