What People Are Saying
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.
Christianity Today gave me a much wider perspective on the church than you could get from any other religious tradition.
Christianity Today is helping to set a standard towards which others may aspire and by which others will be measured. It's taking the lead in helping to answer Jesus' prayer in John 17:21, ' … that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me.'
Christianity Today has always been a leader in the US industry, setting a high standard for other magazines in editorial and design quality. Their professionalism, research and approach to publishing has rubbed off on the rest of the industry.
CT is bringing out what is relevant but it's staying biblical and not compromising. I like, for instance, the testimonies section that is at the end of each issue. I read that section first. It's a powerful section.
I really look to Christianity Today for an irenic, balanced, historically and theologically grounded voice as something valuable in evangelicalism.
I really value the ministry of Christianity Today as a whole—truly. I read CT magazine. As a pastor, I use resources like PreachingToday.com and Church Law & Tax. Church Finance Today and Church Law & Tax Report are both things our church uses. We pass those on to our church board. Those resources are really invaluable to us in terms of managing the church.
The Behemoth taking on just the task of talking about wonder, the mystery, being awestruck over God, is so important for our time. We are on the cusp of making God's Word only about the numbers and facts, completely missing its beauty.
The environment for churches today is more sophisticated than ever. Leadership is required to understand and comply with an extensive amount of legislation and regulation. It can be difficult to keep up, and the work of Church Law and Tax provides the needed support to help churches understand the day-to-day implications.
