The City: Exquisite Christian Writing

November 3, 2012 — 1 Comment

Grab a cup of fresh coffee, a pen, and turn your mind on.

As some of your may know I am a faithful reader of Houston Baptist University’s (free) publication, The City. If you are currently not subscribed to this venerable journal, you are missing out on reading some of the finest minds and finest writing in Christendom. I have recently attempted to scream from the rooftops the overwhelming joy I’ve received from reading it (beginning with the insightful interview with Mary Eberstadt).

The most recent issue discusses Ross Douthat’s important book Bad Religion. Perhaps not surprisingly, I was greatly helped by my friend Owen Strachan‘s fantastic contribution this Fall. You can read his article below.

I’m still making my way through the journal, but if you have a cold and rainy Saturday afternoon that needs to be filled, this will benefit both your mind and soul.

Tim’s written work has appeared in Lifeway’s Living With Teenagers (February 2012), Lookout Magazine, FUSION Magazine, The Brink Online, The Old Schoolhouse Magazine, Virtue Magazine, Regenerate Our Culture Online Magazine, and on many other blogs and websites across the internet like Marry Well and the Lies Young Women Believe Blog.
