Editorial: The Editor as Steward

Dylan Pahman


The late Michael Novak, requiescat in pace, said that true callings are characterized by [l]ong hours, frustrations, small steps forward, struggles: unless these too are welcomed with a certain joy, the claim to being called has a hollow ring. It has been my joy these past six years to work through [l]ong hours, frustrations, small steps forward, [and] struggles as part of the editorial staff of this journal, accompanied by the leadership, mentorship, and friendship of Dr. Jordan Ballor.

Having accepted a position as postdoctoral researcher in theology and economics at the VU (Free University) Amsterdam as part of its What Good Markets Are Good For project, Jordan has stepped down as executive editor of the Journal of Markets & Morality. His tenure at this journal is not limited to his time as executive editor, but began with volume 7, issue 1 (Spring 2004), his first issue as associate editor. Over the years he oversaw theme issues, controversies, translations, digital content, and more. This journal is richer for his influence and poorer for his absence.
