The United MethodistPublishing House has existed since 1789 under a variety of names.

Religion in Life’s main focus was articles and bookshaving to do with Christianity and Christian Theology.iv This publication serviced as a journalfor the lay reader.In 1980 Abingdon Press ceased publication of the Religion in Life after forty-nine years. TheEditor-in-Chief for most of Religion in Life was Emory Buck. The reasons for this were therising cost and decreasing circulation of the publication.v After 1980, the publication wasreplaced with the Quarterly Review: a Scholarly Journal for Reflection in Ministry (1980-2005),published jointly by the United Methodist General Board of High Education and the UnitedMethodist Publishing House.vi The Quarterly Review focused on topics and issues relevant to theMethodist clergy. viiThe Christian Advocate (NY) was published by the Methodist Book Concern (United MethodistPublishing House) from 1826-1956.viii Its Editor-in-Chief was Rev.
