Pulpit Magazine Is Back!

by Nathan Busenitz

Pulpit_CoverFirst a little history …

Pulpit Magazine made its debut ten years ago, in 2003, as a bi-monthly e-zine published by Grace Community Church and the Shepherds’ Conference. Over the years, it went through several variations — finally ending up as a daily blog that reached its peak in the Spring of 2009.

Around that same time, the Grace to You blog started, and Pulpit was taken offline. (The Grace to You blog is still going strong, and should be a staple part of every American evangelical’s blog-reading diet.) Although the Pulpit website remained active through the summer of 2012, no new content was added to the blog after 2009.

Now for some exciting news …

When Grace Advance Fellowship started in 2011, the decision was made to resurrect Pulpit Magazine as a monthly online periodical.

The first issue launched this past October, and the quality of both the content and the presentation has never been better. Featured contributors include John MacArthur, Phil Johnson, Lance Quinn, and Alexander Strauch.

Dynamic content is available for the iPad, iPhone, AndroidKindle, and Nook — meaning that wherever you go, you can easily take Pulpit with you on your mobile device. Each issue is only 99 cents (and annual subscriptions reduce that cost even more). Basic text versions (in PDF format) are also available for free download at http://www.graceadvance.org/Pulpit.

John MacArthur said this about the new Pulpit Magazine:

I understand you don’t need another online blog or website where you can have more information. That’s not why Pulpit is here. We’re here to help you think carefully and critically about all that other information.

First Corinthians 2:16 says of believers, “We have the mind of Christ.” We want you to be able to think about the issues in ministry, about your own life, about your preaching, about your church, about evangelism, about the world, the way Christ would think about it.

We want to enhance and enrich your critical thinking faculties based upon an understanding of the Word of God. So everything that comes across in Pulpit Magazine is designed to refine you as a biblical thinker who understands the mind of Christ and therefore you can have a worldview that is truly His.

So, take a few moments to check it out. A wealth of trustworthy content is just a few clicks away.

    Too bad they’re charging for it. 99 cents per issue of only 27 pages is rather high, compared to other offerings available on Kindle at that price. Thankfully these men and many other good teachers still provide plenty of good, non-paid articles online. But thanks for the information anyway — I enjoyed many good Pulpit articles back in ’09, shortly before the GTY blog started.

      Hi Lynda,

      As noted in today’s post, the articles in Pulpit are available for free (in a text-only format) at the following link: http://www.graceadvance.org/Pulpit.
      Hope that helps,

        Thanks, that does help. When I went to that link I saw that it was talking about the Kindle and other versions, and didn’t realize that that page itself will also have the articles.
