Carol Stream, IL September 13, 2017 - Christianity Today won two top awards showcasing religion journalism excellence at the Religion News Association's annual awards banquet in Nashville, Tennessee on September 9, 2017.
Christianity Today won first place for Excellence in Magazine Overall Religion Coverage. Editor in Chief Mark Galli shares, "It's always encouraging to be recognized for excellence, but it's especially gratifying to hear it from a stellar journalistic organization like the Religion News Association. Our news team, headed by Jeremy Weber, does incredible work, and I'm glad they are increasingly being recognized for it by their peers."
Jeremy Weber also personally won first place for Excellence in Magazine News Religion Reporting for recent global feature stories reported from Iraq/Greece, Lebanon, and India. Weber reflects on the award, "It's an honor to be recognized for our hard work by the best professionals in the business. But it was also an honor to tell in-depth stories about two of the world's most urgent crises: refugees and religious freedom. We hope that this award draws new attention to those stories and thus to the millions of people facing such troubles."
Christianity Today increasingly is seeking to bring to its readers unique, on-the-ground reporting from the church abroad. Galli states, "Readers consistently tell us they appreciate this 'front-row seat' to what God is doing around the globe. It's important to learn from our global Christian family how God sustains and grows his church."
