So Sad

When I go to the mail box and it is there, I feel like it is Christmas. There is that plastic covering with the paper card stock. When I notice it in the box, I my reaction is just shy of Steve Martin in "The Jerk" at the arrival of the phone book: "The new phone book is here. The new phone book is here." When it arrives I border on giddy with glee. But not today.

It started that way, but when I read the special text on paper card stock it said: "Last Issue." It seems as though Christian History and Biography will no longer be published. They are going to make up the difference in my subscription with Christianity Today issues, but I am thinking of seeing if they will send my money back. It is nothing against CT; I just loved Christian History and Biography.

So sad. It is a good thing the NFL started tonight.

Sorry to hear that. I think it's very revealing of mainstream Christianity (which CT represents) that where we've come from and been doesn't mater at all but instead where we are and where we're going (more so where we are though). Mainstream Christianity (especially of the non-denominational type) has no roots and that is what CT seems to represent. What do you think?

Maybe there's a journal you can subscribe to.

Well said. It is also telling that so much of the evangelical community thinks church history began with the Reformation.

I will look for a journal. Thanks for the thought.
