This issue marks a transition in the editorial staff of CHRISTIANITY TODAY. The central news office moves from Washington, D.C., to Carol Stream. Edward E. Plowman, promoted to senior editor, continues in charge of the Washington office. He will provide a vital Washington outlook as well as feature articles and special reports analyzing the current religious scene.

At the home office, Harry Genet becomes the new news editor, with John Maust as assistant. Genet, a journalism graduate of the University of Minnesota, was for six years a missionary in the Middle East and more recently has edited Horizons and other publications of The Evangelical Alliance Mission. Maust edited an Indiana weekly newspaper before getting an M.A. degree in communications at the Graduate School of Wheaton College. Although CHRISTIANITY TODAY makes no claim to carry all the religious news that’s fit to print, news editor Genet promises to continue the broad coverage of religious news characteristic of CHRISTIANITY TODAY under his predecessors Edward Plowman, Richard Ostling (religion editor of Time magazine), Russell Chandler (religion editor of the Los Angeles Times), and David E. Kucharsky (editor of Christian Herald).

We also say farewell to associate editor Arthur Matthews, who has accepted the editorship of the Presbyterian Church in America magazine, PCA Messenger. We have appreciated his faithful and skillful service.
