Christianity Today magazine is an evangelical Christian periodical, founded in 1956, based in Carol Stream, Illinois. It is the flagship publication of its parent organization by the same name, a nonprofit global media ministry. The magazine delivers commentary from a biblical perspective, covering the spectrum of choices and perceived challenges facing Christians today.
Christianity Today magazine has a print circulation of 130,000 and readership of 260,000, as well as a website at ChristianityToday.com. The founder, Billy Graham, stated that he wanted to "plant the evangelical flag in the middle-of-the-road, taking the conservative theological position but a definite liberal approach to social problems". Graham started the magazine as counter-point to The Christian Century, the predominant independent periodical of mainline Protestantism, and as a way to bring the evangelical Christian community together.
Christianity Today is considered a leading voice of the evangelical movement with its coverage of the global church. Every monthly print issue and daily website updates include interviews, feature articles, essays, and commentary from leading Christian thinkers, and theological analysis on current issues, trends, people and news events that impact people of faith.
