Well, winner of the Buckley Award , anyway. Ryan, a former assistant editor and now a member of our Advisory Council, was one of the five people awarded the Young Conservative Coalition’s award for young conservative leaders. The biography included mentions his “influence and ‘courage under fire’,” noting the way he handled himself when under attack by Piers Morgan. (If you have had a similar experience, you will know how impressive Ryan’s performance was.) The quickest way to summarize his gifts and accomplishments is just to say that we’re very, very, very glad he’s one of us.

Congratulations to Ryan.

Dear Reader,

Your charitable support for First Things is urgently needed before July 1.

First Things is a proudly reader-supported enterprise. The gifts of readers like you— often of $50, $100, or $250—make articles like the one you just read possible.

This Spring Campaign—one of our two annual reader giving drives—comes at a pivotal season for America and the church. With your support, many more people will turn to First Things for thoughtful religious perspectives on pressing issues of politics, culture, and public life.

All thanks to you. Will you answer the call?
