Item description for Witness to the Promised Land: Observations on Congress And the Presidency from the Pages of Christianity & Crisis by John G. Stewart...

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. He gave readers close-up views of the major actors and detractors of the day, and described in detail the complex procedures and personalities of the senate. In this volume, Stewart presents the original columns, and offers short current commentaries. Witness to the Promised Land is a revealing and insightful account of the cultural and social workings of American Democracy and holds an astounding relevance to our time.

Wonderful and Fascinating  Sep 7, 2005
A wonderful read especially for anyone who lived through the turmoil of the 60's. John Stewart's insights are fascinating, and his writing captivates without being ponderous. The lessons to be learned are many, but the book is also splendid just for its entertainment value.
