Our readers will note that we have a new Eutychus. It has been our policy to make a change every few years. I must express appreciation to Eutychus V, our own John Lawing, Jr., for his splendid contributions. We expect Eutychus to be controversial and hope he will always prick our consciences. Welcome to Eutychus VI.

Bound volumes of CHRISTIANITY TODAY for the period October 1972–September 1973 are now available at eleven dollars a copy, including postage and handling. The book is 1,356 pages in size, and that’s less than a penny a page. It’s a real bargain.

Take a good look at the plight of a minister’s wife in “Thrice I Cried.” Ben Hale in “Radio Church” makes some good suggestions for improving the methodology of religious broadcasting. Our long-time friend, Dick Halverson, has a special word about prayer—something we all profess to believe in but practice so little. We should all try to make 1974 a special year devoted to prayer. The article by Marvin Wilson on bribery (“Prophets and Green Palms”) is a hard-hitting piece that should occasion a positive response.
