So, a pastor-friend of mine had a copy of this magazine: Revevant. He (a mid-50s clergy) was very impressed by it, and subscribed. He let me borrow his copy, and I must admit, I was quite skeptical, because he said that it was conservative theologically and in some other ways, but that he still found it, well, relevant. I frankly found this hard to believe.
But, I flipped it open last night, and so far have been quite impressed. I can't say I agree with everything, but there are a lot of intriguing articles in there, like about the pros and cons of "Christian Culture," suggesting that perhaps just living as Christians in a "secular" world is often a better path. I tried to find out more online - here's who they say they are:
RELEVANT magazine :: GOD.LIFE.PROGRESSIVE CULTURE.:
"We get a lot of emails asking who we are and what we believe, so here it is:
We're twentysomething Christians. We want to break stereotypes, challenge status quo and enact change through the media. We're seeking God, living life and striving to impact the world around us. It's pretty simple, really.
Oh yeah, and we're a self-contained, for-profit business (although the profit part is debatable)."
Hm. Anyone know more about this magazine? Thoughts on it? I'm thinking of subscribing, anyway...
