Some people might be surprised to learn I read the Restoration Herald. I like it. It is a conservative monthly publication of The Christian Restoration Association
Here are some Reasons I read the Restoration Herald.
I. It challenges me. I might disagree with some things written there, but does allow me to have a different perspective.
II. It is very practical. I appreciate one of the current series: Life and Work of the Minister
III. It gives History. It looks back of some of the saints that have gone before us, and their role in the Restoration Movement.
IV. It is very practical - from the "Here's an Idea you can use" and "Let me illustrate" - it helps makes things practical.
V. It has Bible Study lessons from those in the trenches of ministry. When I come across some of the lessons, I'm like I know that person.
VI. It defends the Word of God. It gives insight on issues that are in our brotherhood, and points out some disagreements.
VII. It allows room for grace and dialogue. I noticed the editor may disagree with several in our brotherhood, but allows there to be a dialogue open, while standing firm on what the Word of God says.
VIII. It is a doctrinal conservative voice. Sometimes I think this is missing in other publications.
IX. It helps highlight some of the things happening in both great and small churches alike.
X. It helps me look at the reasons I am part of the Restoration Movement and to further the cause of Christ.
So what publications do you like?
