The Christian Chronicle is a religious newspaper associated with the Churches of Christ.[1]:176-7 The Chronicle has a "news not views" editorial policy.[1]:177 A survey conducted in the early 1990s found that 68 percent of ministers in the Churches of Christ read the Chronicle, and 88 percent of those readers said they agreed with the content.[1]:177 The Encyclopedia of the Stone-Campbell Movement describes the Chronicle as "by far the most-read paper in the Churches of Christ and [it] exercises an influence for cohesiveness in this part of the Stone-Campbell Movement".[1]:177

History[edit]
