Journals and Newsletters
Realistic Living: A Journal on Ethics and Religion is published twice a year, June and November, and bulk mailed to 400-500 friends and contributors. Each 16-page 8 1/2" X 11" issue contains reflections, essays, book reviews, movie reviews, and sometimes poetry on current ethical issues and on topics of Christian resurgence, including dialogue with other religious expressions. With this journal we are attempting to fill a gap in religious and ethical publishing—more secular than the religious press, more religious than the secular press. We are concerned to illuminate time-tested wisdoms in contemporary metaphors and stories. Beginning in November of 1983, fifty-seven issues of this journal have now been published.
We also publish in March and September the Realistic Living Newsletter. In this mailing we share with Realistic Living contributors our research on small group religious practice using Christian symbology translated for our era.
Each year, we send an annual report on our research, training, and publishing to our contributors. To be included in these sharings, we request a contribution to Realistic Living of $20 or more per year, tax deductible within the United States.
Hard copy of back issues of the Journals are available for $3 each.
