Christianity Today is the needed rallying point that equips and encourages pastors and church leaders around the world.
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.
Christianity Today has had a profound impact on the Brazilian church. Being the editor of Cristianismo Hoje (the Brazilian version of CT), I was able to witness how its ministry was relevant and respected by prominent church leaders in Brazil. CT's hopeful stories initiated questions that were part of the key issues discussed in this part of the Global South.
As a pastor and a writer, there is no Christian magazine I read more frequently than Christianity Today. It's combination of news, analysis, features, reviews and editorial sets the pace for everyone else.
What a gift CT is to the global church. Given the influence of the churches in North America in Africa, CT is a good source for appreciating their challenges and opportunities, helping me to make sense of that influence. I have deeply appreciated CT's coverage of the issues and questions—the breadth, width, and depth, and drawing from its rich evangelical heritage.
The experiences shared by those who share their own ministry struggles in the pages of Christianity Today regularly reminded me that others were experiencing the same challenges my husband and I were. Their words affirmed what we were learning in the trenches: Ministry was simultaneously impossible and joyous, packed with soul-wearying challenges and overflowing with kingdom possibilities.
