Editorial political positions[edit]

"its editorial positions tend to be politically and theologically centrist"

The above statement has no place in this particular article, to claim centrism for an evangalical right wing news periodical is no different than to claim centrism for something like alternet.org. It does a great disservice to wikipedians to suppose the authors point of veiw is central or mainstream(and with the articles original seeming necessity for apologizing for falwell pov is unmasked).

That maybe, but in fact it is an accurate statement of the magazine today. It is relatively centrist, well by the standards of the US. It might even be slightly liberal by the standards of Evangelical Christianity. When I see it in stores it doesn't look much different then any other news magazine. You have Bono on the cover discussing debt relief or something similar. I was hesitant to read it because it's Evangelical Christian, but what I've seen online it's mostly pretty bland. Although on occasion it does run some fairly Christian Right statements. Still it wouldn't fit as one of the Evangelical right-wing periodicals. I think to see it as such would be culturally out of whack and make the term lose all meaning. Right-wing Evangelical magazines are like "Faith for all life", Chalcedon Foundation's magazine, or Falwell's "National Liberty Journal"--T. Anthony 11:58, 9 October 2005 (UTC)
"The magazine ran some of the first advertisements for Jerry Falwell's Moral Majority."

Does that matter?

I agree that this doesn't really matter and misrepresents the editoral stance of this publication. The Moral Majority has been frequently criticized by the editors and other contributing writers in this periodical. I believe this comment should be deleted.

Too many links![edit]

There are far too many links here, particularly considering most of them are easily found from the main website. Clean up is certainly in order. Anagrammarian 05:37, 26 April 2006 (UTC)

Citation[edit]

It doesn't look like there are any citation needed tags on the page anymore, I'm going to take down the citation tag. Please don't put it back up without showing specifically where the citations are needed. --Kraftlos (talk) 10:21, 15 February 2008 (UTC)

Christian magazines[edit]

Ive been trying to establish which christian magazines are the most spread throughout the globe.

Trying to make a top 5 is allready impossible as, as far as I can see, only a few magazines offer the number of each issue.

The Watchtower clearly is number one, folowed by Awake!. I believe that Christianity Today is the third, but I have no proof of that.

Therefore I hope to get the answer here.--Kind regards, Ro de Jong (Talk to me!) 14:45, 8 August 2011 (UTC)
