Matthew Schmitz has already pointed readers to Books & Culture’s need for supporters to pledge a lot of money by Monday to keep publishing. Let me add my own encouragement.
Books & Culture has an important place, a place only it can fill, in the world — the shrinking world — of serious Christian magazines. It’s a substantial magazine of the old sort, which one reads for the pleasure of reading and of learning, covering subjects with no obvious immediate cash value but of great value to those who believe in humane learning — though it also dealt well with the pressing issues of the day. It’s the flagship publication of its sort in the Evangelical world and the major magazine in which Evangelicalism’s peculiar genius is applied to cultural matters.
The Christian world needs Books & Culture. I’ve pledged support and encourage you to do so. Here’s the donate button.
