I had to write a book to get into Christianity Today.  Matthew Lee Anderson got in for his awesome blogging!  Pick up the December 2009 CT for a full page profile on young Mr. Anderson.

I’m particularly pleased to see the magazine take notice of his outstanding work in HBU’s journal of Christian thought, The City.  You can read his big The City article here.

Dear Reader,

We launched the First Things 2023 Year-End Campaign to keep articles like the one you just read free of charge to everyone.

Measured in dollars and cents, this doesn't make sense. But consider who is able to read First Things: pastors and priests, college students and professors, young professionals and families. Last year, we had more than three million unique readers on

Informing and inspiring these people is why First Things doesn't only think in terms of dollars and cents. And it's why we urgently need your year-end support.

Will you give today?

Make My Gift
