The Christian Century, the most respected magazine for mainline Protestants in the world, has helped Christians think critically and live faithfully since 1884. The publication's former editor and publisher, John Buchanan, has compiled a collection of biweekly editorials from the magazine that highlight events, issues, and questions that progressive Christians faced at the turning of this century.

A must-read for Christian Century fans, From the Editor's Desk examines ten key areas from the years 1999-2015, focusing on war and peace, civic engagement, newsworthy events, the Middle East, and congregational life.

John M. Buchanan was the editor and publisher of The Christian Century magazine for over fifteen years. He is Pastor Emeritus of the Fourth Presbyterian Church of Chicago, in Chicago, Illinois, where he served as pastor for twenty-six years. He is the author of several books, including A New Church for a New World, and has held numerous leadership roles for the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), including Moderator of the 208th General Assembly.


Jason Byassee is Assistant Editor at Christian Century. He has taught adjunct at Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary, North Park Theological Seminary, and Wheaton College. He is a probationary elder in the United Methodist Church.

"The Christian Century has arrived as reliably as the rising sun and with it John Buchanan's wise pastoral counsel and insight as a wake-up call, over and over making a compelling case for thinking through the pastoral prism of faith. It is now a treasure to have so many of his good words together in one place."
Walter Brueggemann, William Marcellus McPheeters Professor Emeritus of Old Testament, Columbia Theological Seminary

"As what was once envisioned as the Christian Century moved into a post-Christendom era, John Buchanan's columns guided the church's thoughts away from the sirens of hubris and onto a course that was rigorously honest and relentlessly hopeful."
M. Craig Barnes, President, Princeton Theological Seminary

"John Buchanan's commitment to a Christian life that is passionately engaged with the world's most urgent questions comes through on every page of this welcome volume. His vision of the church as a life-saving community forever turning towards the world is both challenge and blessing.
Stephanie Paulsell, Susan Shallcross Swartz Professor of the Practice of Christian Studies, Harvard Divinity School
