I'm impressed with the staff of Christianity Today and their commitment to Christ in the sense of accountability and responsibility. They have a high degree of professionalism, a desire for excellence, and a seriousness with which they take the craft of journalism—the whole notion of integrity, veracity, and accuracy.
I think at its core Christianity Today is committed to the truth of the Gospel. In an age of relativism and pluralism, Christianity Today provides a compass—a north star—that centers us in terms of what biblical truth is.
Christianity Today wants all the diverse voices in evangelicalism represented and wants everybody at the table. I deeply appreciate the commitment of Christianity Today to the coalition of evangelicalism.
Evangelicalism is theologically vibrant, but that means there are a lot of debates and differences. What I like about Christianity Today is that these theological debates and ideas are covered in a balanced manner and always handled in a charitable way.
It is so tempting just to read from sources that we agree with. Christianity Today helps me grow by stretching me to think a little differently about theology, a little differently about the world, and a little differently about culture.
I want to find out what God is doing in the church outside of North America. But that's hard information to find. One of the things that I appreciate about Christianity Today is its global perspective—it's the number-one place I go for news about the church around the world.
Christianity Today is holistic. It touches my mind because it stretches me to think. It touches my heart because it shows me what's on God's heart. And it touches my hands because it gives me a way to impact the world every day for the kingdom.
The problem with our soundbite culture is that it keeps us at a shallow level and prevents us from having the deep roots required to bring about change in our culture and church. Christianity Today is different. They explore issues related to theology, the church, and the culture and gives me the depth that I need.
Christianity Today uniquely gives a zoomed-out, global perspective from a Christian worldview. They help me think differently about how to view the world and understand how God is working.
I trust Christianity Today because they have a consistent and objective record over time. They're about the kingdom at large, rather than representing a faction or being divisive.
