Witness to the Promised Land: Observations on Congress and the Presidency from the Pages of Christianity & Crisis

Synopsis

A collection of essays written by John G. Stewart in Christianity & Crisis, the respected journal of Christian opinion that was founded in 1941 by Reinhold Niebuhr. The magazine (C&C) achieved a level of influence, far exceeding its small circulation, and became a forum for important writers of the time. For half a century C&C commanded great respect in left-liberal circles, both religious and secular. Notable writers, including Protestant, Catholic and Jewish leaders and laity, explored changing ideas about religion and society, and contemplated the implications of Christian faith on modern society. Stewart wrote a series of reports from Washington during the 1960s while working with senator/V.P. Humphrey. With keen eye and precise prose, Stewart offered an insider view of how civil rights legislation was being crafted, advanced or thwarted by different factions.
