Christians have wrestled with what it means to be called to their work by God and what work God calls us to since the beginning of the church. This issue of Christian History shares the stories of famous Christians who have tried to remain faithful to their vocations, explores how the church has helped and sometimes hindered followers in their callings, and reminds us that all work, not just “church work,” is a sacred calling.
Billy Graham’s message changed millions, but in the course of his career, his experiences broadened, deepened, chastened, and changed him profoundly. Learn the story behind the man some have called the greatest evangelist since the New Testament Era in this issue of Christian History.
Bright lights, glorious sky, clouds, harps and song, choirs of angels, dancing, a garden, a pasture, walls and ladders, gates, a temple, living waters...Christians through the centuries have pictured heaven in many ways through art, music, literature, and theological writings. They have debated who goes to heaven, when and how we go, and whether we stop off in purgatory on the way. Read about it all in this issue of Christian History on Heaven in the Christian Imagination.
Dynamic worship, energetic circuit-riding preachers, and a close-up, personal style of leadership made Methodism a movement perfectly suited to bring the word of God to the new nation of America. And Francis Asbury led the way, rising from unremarkable working-class metalworker to bishop of a denomination stretching over a continent.
The first issue of Christian History magazine's series of four on the Reformation explores the roots and fruits of reform. On a quiet October Wednesday in 1517, a young Augustinian monk and theology professor, with one nail to the Wittenberg Castle door, struck a death blow to medieval Catholicism. That’s the story we think we know of Martin Luther, his 95 Theses, and the beginning of the Reformation. But is it the whole story?

This issue of Christian History features the fascinating stories behind the top 25 writings in Church history, selected by more than 70 past writers of the magazine.

Quakers are known for their silent meetings and simple living, but we’ll uncover surprising stories of charismatic leaders, fervent social activism, and even a few bold Quakers who went naked as a prophetic sign in this issue of Christian History magazine.
It didn’t take long for the ideas of Luther, Zwingli, and many others to ignite a sea change in society at large: peasants revolting, priests and nuns marrying, church art destroyed, heretics on both sides persecuted by church and state, and a philandering king whose search for a male heir would birth the Church of England. Read about one of the most turbulent eras of all of history in issue #118, The People’s Reformation, the second in our Reformation series.
From the monks and mystics who found in nature divine inspiration for moving poetry and art to the hermits and activists who felt the call to live in harmony with the same, you’ll meet a variety of inspiring saints.

As the reform movement spread and splintered across Europe in the mid-sixteenth century, each offshoot searched for and strengthened its identity through various confessions and creeds. On this scene stepped John Calvin, the hopeful priest turned reluctant lawyer who became one of the world's most influential reformers. Read his story along with the story of the divisions, martyrdoms, victories, and disappointments that marked the last half of the sixteenth century in this third Reformation issue of Christian History.
They were the wars of our grandparents and great-grandparents. Bloody, nightmarish wars that transformed the face of the globe, claimed entire families, and ushered in the nuclear age. As the world fought to save Western civilization, Christians fought too, in battles both physical and spiritual. Their stories are heart-wrenching, challenging, and touching, and there are some stories we’d rather forget. Read them all in this expanded issue of Christian History on World Wars I and II.
The Catholic Reformation is a story often overlooked by Protestants. In this issue of Christian History magazine, read how some Catholics embraced "evangelical" ideas and helped usher in a new era.
