Summary This study is first and foremost a cultural history of 'The Christian Century' that sets the magazine's evolving editorial positions and chronic financial difficulties against a backdrop of larger trends including the expansion of higher education, tensions between diversity and consensus, the growth of mass media, and America's ascension as a global power. The book also uses the story of the 'Century' to explore the development of the mainline as a religious tradition.
