Christianity Today is the needed rallying point that equips and encourages pastors and church leaders around the world.
CT has helped inform how we think and respond in the world around us, whatever the cause or area, whether political or economic or social or theological. CT articles over the years have been formative for our thinking.
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 many contemporary issues are getting very complex, we believe that CT's mission is becoming even more critical. Layman and ministers simply do not have time and even knowledge to think deeply about them. CT fills this gap beautifully and timely, and we wish CT will continue this ministry and even expand in scope and size.
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.
CT allows us to listen in on the way God is working in different groups and regions through the filter of what's good and true and beautiful. It doesn't just talk about Beautiful Orthodoxy in theory, CT models it in practice.
