The image and work of the cross is well captured in Christianity Today's commitment to Beautiful Orthodoxy, that place in the crux, right in the center, where we can be a good and truthful presence in the world, but one that reflects the very mysterious beauty of God as well.
We wanted to make sure the voice of Christian principle remains viable and that's why we decided to support the ministry of Christianity Today.
CT's ability to present multiple sides to an issue builds credibility for me. Even if I'm not interested or informed on the archaea of a theological issue, I have the feeling both sides are respectful of each other, and the reader can make up his or her mind based on the presentation of informed people. That's a big plus, and I can't find that anywhere else.
CT rebuts the "nice person, poor mind" Christian stereotype by doing it with love intellectually. This is unique and I want to support this important effort.
CT is willing to publish important critiques to us as evangelicals and that has to stay in our conversation. We want to support an organization like CT that is willing to speak truth.
Christianity Today really is the best middle ground I could find. It really works for people with conservative theology but a broad view of social justice and culture.
It's good for people like me who aren't as involved in the day-to-day workings of the church to stay informed. I'd even consider Christianity Today to be the best news source for Christians available today.
Christianity Today was the catalyst to help me continue to "walk the talk" and integrate Christianity into my everyday life by discussing theology, basic beliefs, news and events, and family issues that were relevant for me.
I believe great work should be supported—particularly with journalism and in the time in which we live. CT does amazing work, and the world would be a much poorer place without it.
As I read Men of Integrity, I realize that I am simply being asked to be obedient and walk through the door that God has opened.
