World magazine - a must for conservative Christian families
The other day I did a roundup of conservative links. But there's a very special resource I want to share - one in which our family has a lot of confidence.
We began reading World magazine in 1989. As the newsweeklies Time and Newsweak have been in steady decline, I've often thanked God for a source we can count on for the truth about current events rather than puff pieces on liberals and hit pieces on conservatives.
World covers current events - national and international - from a Christian perspective, including culture and the arts. They have some fantastic columnists, including Cal Thomas, Gene Veith and Marvin Olasky. Last year when postal rates went up, they made a decision to go to a biweekly format with more pages and more in-depth coverage - and while I thought they already had a product which couldn't be improved on, the new World has been even better than it was before.
I read each issue cover-to-cover - but have a hard time keeping it to myself for any length of time as World is pretty popular with all the readers in the house. And when my kids have gotten married and started families of their own, they've gotten their own subscriptions, so now my grandchildren are reading it too.
A subscription to World is a solid investment. Maybe for Father's Day?
World also produces newsweeklies for kids - similar to Junior Scholastic, but free of liberal hype and spin. You can subscribe yourself - or better yet, pool with others as the price goes down when subscribing for multiple copies (just like in the classroom).
This is a great way to begin building discernment in your children so they will be able as adults to see for themselves the truth behind the news.
See God's World News for more information.
