"Open Minded"--for Evangelicals
CT among Tribune readers' faves.
Each year readers of the Chicago Tribune's "Tempo" section are treated to the editors' list of 50 favorite magazines. Few religious magazines make their list. And this year, no religious perspectives appeared on their June 26 honor roll.
Yesterday, the Tribune ran a list of readers' favorites to balance the shortsightedness of their list. Not surprisingly, the Atlantic and Real Simple were among those faves that the readers chided them for omitting. And here at CT, we were pleased to see our efforts were also given recognition.
Here's what they wrote about us:
Christianity Today: "Covers a broad range of issues with an open-minded and inclusive point of view for the evangelical reader, acknowledging that 'evangelical' can mean many different things."
Not sure how to parse "open-minded and inclusive for the evangelical reader," but I think that qualifies as a left-handed compliment. And as a southpaw, I'll take it.
