CAROL STREAM, Ill., Sept. 16 /Christian Newswire/ -- Christianity Today magazine debuts its redesign in the October issue with new features and a bold, new look. The magazine has a new orientation with well-defined sections and a new color palette.
Editor-in-Chief David Neff says, "Redesign a magazine and you could disorient some readers. But we hope that the redesigned Christianity Today will quickly give the reader a better sense of orientation. We believe the magazine is easier to use and more thoughtful than ever."
Lead designer, Gary Gnidovic, says, "Although we'd been considering a redesign of Christianity Today for a couple of years, the beginning of 2009 felt like the right time to begin the process. Sometimes a publication's design can evolve slowly, but periodically, because of changing editorial needs, or even cultural shifts, it is good to completely rethink how one is approaching the content structurally and visually. In CT's 50-year history there have been only 5 or 6 complete redesigns. We hope that the reader will find this new CT to feel fresh and vital, and with a greater degree of orientation to the content."
The magazine has been organized into four clearly-defined sections:
- Briefing - The news section with robust graphic portrayals of key data about current issues.
- The Well - Our in-depth and comprehensive feature articles.
- Viewpoints - CT editorials and feedback from readers.
- CT Review - Groundbreaking reviews on books, music, movies, and websites.
- The Village Green - Three writers address a question that doesn't lend itself to left-right polarization.
- Who's Next - Features the people who will be shaping the evangelical movement in the future.

For more than 50 years, Christianity Today has been a source of reliable news and commentary, and the magazine will continue to give the reader thoughtful articles, grounded in biblical perspective, written by the men and women who are changing our world.
Christianity Today, the world's leading religious current-issues publication covering the people, events, and ideas that shape the evangelical movement, was founded by Billy Graham in 1956.
