My first column for Christianity Today is in print! As I mentioned a few months ago, CT invited me to be a columnist this year. We've dubbed the column name as "Kingdom Sightings." The first column, "The Vision Thing," just appeared in the February issue. It's not online yet, but I'll link to it when it's available. (Update: It's now online and available here.)
What's fascinating to me with magazine writing is the time warp. When we get magazines in the mail, we have a sense that it's the latest news. But with monthly magazines, the content was likely written three or four months beforehand. I wrote my February column back in November, and a few weeks ago I sent in my April column. Of course, since I work in book publishing, I'm used to things being time delayed - I'm working with manuscript drafts now that won't be in print until fall 2008 or winter 2009. The content for "new" books is usually at least a year old by the time it hits the shelves.
At any rate, if you're a subscriber and have read the article, let me know what you think! Thanks for reading.
