"Abbott claimed that Jesus' teaching 'changed' after experiencing rejection, and that he identified the mission of the Twelve, the feeding of the five thousand, and the bread of life discourse as 'the crisis' of ministry 'the year of obscurity.'" [Ferda. Jesus, the Gospels, and the Galilean Crisis] Lyman J. Abbott (1835 – 1922) was an American Congregationalist theologian, editor, and author. Abbot worked in the publishing profession as an associate editor of Harper's Magazine and was the founder of a publication called the Illustrated Christian Weekly, which he edited for six years. He was also the co-editor of The Christian Union with Henry Ward Beecher from 1876 to 1881. Abbott succeeded Beecher in 1888 as pastor of Plymouth Church, Brooklyn. Abbott was a constant advocate of Industrial Democracy, and was an advocate of Theodore Roosevelt's progressivism for almost 20 years. He would later adopt a pronouncedly liberal theology. He was also a Christian Evolutionist. In two of his books, The Evolution of Christianity and The Theology of an Evolutionist, Abbott applied the concept of evolution in a Christian theological perspective.
