About Us

Launched in September 1995, Books & Culture was a bimonthly review that engaged the contemporary world from a Christian perspective. Every issue of Books & Culture contained in-depth reviews of books that merit critical attention, as well as shorter notices of significant new titles. While the magazine's center is Christian, we seek common ground with like-minded souls from other communities of faith.

Books & Culture was published six times a year by Christianity Today from 1995 to 2016.
