If you want to know what keeps Christianity Today’s web editor up at night ...

Sojourners founder Jim Wallis apologized Wednesday to Marvin Olasky for saying, “Glenn Beck lies for a living. I’m sad to see Marvin Olasky doing the same thing.”

Wallis told Christianity Today that he sent a private e-mail to Olasky and plans to speak with the editor-in-chief of World Magazine by phone on Friday.

“I was wrong, out of anger at the insinuation about the dependence on these foundations, I was wrong to imply that like Beck, Marvin lies for a living,” Wallis said. “Glenn Beck does lie for a living. Marvin Olasky doesn’t lie for a living; that’s not something I should say about a brother in Christ.”

Olasky said he would welcome an apology but had not been expecting one. “I’m always glad to talk with Jim,” he said. “It’s educational and entertaining.”
