What to do with that stack of old Bibles (or that stack of old issues of the Century)?
The unexpected Christian century has produced a global body of Christ that challenges as well as enriches Christians.
The first gathering of the Associated Church Press was held in St. Louis in 1916. Last week the ACP returned there to celebrate its 100th anniversary, gather a fine bunch of religion journalists, and hand out awards for work published in 2015. I accepted two first-place awards of behalf of the Century staff: best in class for national and international magazines and best in class for blogs.
The Century's new publisher is Peter W. Marty, author of The Anatomy of Grace and senior pastor of St. Paul Lutheran Church in Davenport, Iowa.
I’ve appreciated the Christian Century since a fellow divinity student put a copy in my hand. As I step down as editor-publisher, I’m aware more than ever of the need for a steady voice thinking critically and faithfully.
There is a time for everything, the preacher in Ecclesiastes observed. It is now time for new leadership at the Century.
I’m just back from Toronto, where I attended the annual gathering of the Associated Church Press. The event was capped by an awards ceremony for work published in 2014, at which the Century was given the “award of merit” (i.e., second place) in the best in class category for national and international magazines. We also won seven additional awards honoring specific work from last year.
