Christian History magazine

The current issue that just came out is all about St. Benedict and Monasticism. I recommend it. Many Protestants are discovering the riches of Catholic spirituality.

Do you have a website for the magazine? I would be interested in ordering it online.

Go to the Christianity Today website. It is one of their magazines.
