Can you guess which magazine is the most widely circulated in the world? I’ll give you two hints: (1) It’s a religious publication, and (2) it’s (sadly) not First Things .
Figured it out? It’s . . .
. . . The Watchtower
Frank takes six copies of the English-language Watchtower, while others select from of piles of Romanian, Italian and Polish editions. Every month, nearly 40 million copies of The Watchtower are printed in more than 180 languages and sent to 236 countries. There are no subscriptions and you wont find it on newsstands, but its still hard to miss. Thanks to the efforts of Witnesses like the Tavolaccis, The Watchtower is the most widely distributed magazine in the world, with a circulation of more than 25 million. Last year, the worlds 7.3 million-strong Jehovahs Witnesses spent 1.5 trillion hours knocking on doors and street Witnessing stopping folks in parks and on streets to preach the good news with a copy of The Watchtower. Its closest competitors are AARP The Magazine (circulation 24.3 million) and Better Homes and Gardens (7.6 million). It doesnt hurt that The Watchtower has been free since 1990, with the option of a small donation.
