What does the Chronicle mean to you? Readers from around globe have their say
I really enjoy reading the Chronicle because it provides a lot of interesting information that I cannot get elsewhere. I like the variety of content, from the human interest stories to the book reviews. I even find the obituaries interesting.
I like your unbiased approach of reporting the news and the willingness to report on controversial matters. You are my main source of information regarding what is happening in our brotherhood.
I appreciate the even-handed presentation of the news, even when it might not be something that pleases the majority. I have appreciated the reporting of the meetings with the independent Christian Churches, although I wonder where this will lead.
Without The Christian Chronicle, we would have no newspaper for the Churches of Christ.

I read it to replace rumors with fact, to stay up-to-date with our churches’ progress abroad and to hear an array of viewpoints on the featured topic in each issue. The online updates are a tremendous help.
May God continue to prosper you in your service.
I really enjoy getting your news, as we are so isolated in New Zealand. It is great to know we are part of a much bigger group. I love the Chronicle and feel encouraged by the ministries I read about.
AUCKLAND, NEW ZEALAND
I am blessed by The Christian Chronicle.
In no other print material am I able to keep up with the current issues and news of our church fellowship.
As a church staff member, reading and learning of the ministries of our sister churches encourage me to be more creative and active.
As a church member, I am inspired and motivated by the reports of our faithful and hard-working missionaries and their evangelistic efforts.
I am especially encouraged to read of the many young people who are dedicating their lives to teaching, preaching and serving. I believe that the Chronicle is a necessary and vital part of our continuing work in bringing the world the message of Christ Jesus.
WEST MONROE, LA.
The online Christian Chronicle is almost the only means I have to keep up with what goes on in the Churches of Christ around the world.
Several friends and relatives have signed up after I e-mailed them your site. I still read your print publication, of course — then mail it to my almost-90-year-old mom, a few states away, after I’ve circled/highlighted some things for her attention. Your willingness to publish objective articles that directly address some of today’s controversies is of great value.
The Chronicle is a great blessing and a big help. Your coverage seems to be balanced and pretty unbiased. I would at times think you are biased in a progressive sense just because you write about such things as the North American Christian Convention. But then I realize your coverage does not mean you’re for it or against it.
Sharing what healthy churches are doing is a help.
I like the Chronicle because it is a nationwide attempt at reporting the activities of the Churches of Christ. I like the fact that you print all sides of the news, not just news that you may or may not agree with. The Chronicle keeps me in touch with the brotherhood and our missionaries.

You are doing for Churches of Christ what they deserve — making the world know about them and connecting them to each other through the Internet. The many philanthropic works being done by brethren all over the world — that you make known to us — spurs me to think of others, not myself alone.

The church needs this kind of reporting. So much bad news is reported, so it is refreshing to see the good things that are happening.
Secular news companies do not see God alive and active and thus do not report the relevance of current Christian happenings.
The Chronicle is an eye-opener that has encouraged me, and in turn I have shared publications with my brothers and sisters in Christ.

I read the Chronicle because I appreciate its objective journalism. Unlike other church periodicals, the Chronicle fills the unique function of informing without editorial comment. The role I see you playing is to inform. I’d say you do an excellent job.
I love the Chronicle — what wonderful, inspiring, newsy articles. Thank you for being the glue that binds us to others who seek to do God’s will all over the world.
