About Us

Third Way magazine is a monthly magazine
dedicated to Christian thinking on culture, society, economics and
politics. It
was launched in January 1977 by a wing of the
Church that had begun to rediscover the imperative of social
responsibility which, with some notable exceptions, it had long
neglected.

Its title refers to a comment by the theologian Os Guinness in a
book entitled The Dust of Death: ‘How often in the
contemporary discussion a sensitive modern man knows that he cannot
accept either of the polarised alternatives offered to him. In
Christianity, however, there can be a Third Way, a true middle
ground which has a basis, is never compromise and is far from
silent.’

Along the way, we’ve picked up some keen fans:

“Inclusive and intelligent” Bono

“Professional, imaginative, unafraid, it makes an
irreplaceable contribution.”
Archbishop Rowan
Williams
