I know the purpose of the site is to discuss issues within churches. And the question I have will be answered more by personal taste I believe. But I would genuinely appreciate some folks opinion on publications worth subscribing to within our brotherhood. I am aware but have not seen in years Firm Foundation, Spiritual Sword and Gospel Advocate. I also know of Christian Chronicle. Some of these publications seem to more argumentative than informative but again if it were YOUR money, and you were to invest in one or two, where would you direct me? Any ideas of these or additional publications that have benefited members on this website?

Thank you

<font color=indigo size=3 face=times new roman>I believe you will benefit from a number of “online” publications. I recommend these very highly:
  • http://christiancourier.com/ (Christian Courier)
    • “An online magazine dedicated to investigating biblical apologetics, religious doctrine, and ethical issues.”
  • http://www.christianity-then-and-now.com/ (Christianity: Then and Now)
    • “Various Studies” lists the following sections: Biblical Studies; Historical & Biographical Studies; Book Reviews; Change Movement Sermons.
Thanks for asking.

I enjoy the Christian Chronicle and Harding's Church and Family Magazine. Church and Family is usually a little heavier on the family than the church side.

I subscribe to the Spiritual Sword quarterly ($6 a year I believe) and regularly review the Gospel Advocate other members of my family receive. Both are doctrinally sound but have a different "flavor". The GA reads more like a magazine while the SS goes deeper into whatever the topic of the quarter is. I prefer the SS for that reason. One topic is assigned to various authors each quarter, for example - Why the church does not use instrumental music. Each article is loaded with sound reasoning based on scripture so that the readers can study on their own. The arguments presented are helpful in both refuting false doctrine and providing information so that we can teach others.
