Not so long I discovered Christianity Today Magazine online. I really like it, all the articles I have read so far were pretty orthodox (with small "o" since it is clearly an Evangelical Protestant publication) in terms of major issues and haven't found anything anti-Orthodox. On the contrary, everything I have read remotely relating to the Orthodox Church has been written in a very respectful and friendly manner. Still, I am wondering if an Orthodox Christian like me should continue reading it. If you have any information/suggestion/advice about this, please, let me know. Thanks!  Smiley

CT is usually pretty stable - doesn't usually cater to outlandish ideas or practices - generally quite conservative. Many articles are useful for their newsworthiness. I subscribe to their email notification and read only the occasional article. Most of it doesn't matter much to me. And yes, there have been several articles that put Orthodoxy in a good light, but it's still a Protestant publication.

Thank you for your reply. Do you have any suggestion for Orthodox alternatives to this publication?

Orthodox Word or Road to Emmaus are two good ones off the top of my head.

See http://www.antiochian.org/theword     CT I would say is kind of like a CS Lewis type of Christianity I would guess & that seems pretty good.
