The New Credo Magazine has arrived!
We are thrilled to announce the launch of the new Credo Magazine 2018. As mentioned in an earlier announcement, there are countless new features. First and foremost, check out the new look of the website. Thanks to the talented design of Mere Agency, the website not only has a fresh new look to it, but the website has ways of making resources very accessible. The website now hosts the three major pillars of Credo: magazine (read), podcast (listen), and video (watch). Each has a landing page where you can choose from a variety of magazine issues, podcasts, and videos instantly.
Additionally, you can navigate any issue of the new looking magazine with great ease. If you are reading a particular article, for instance, you will notice that the magazine issue follows you on the right and at the end of any article you can simply skip to the next article or return to the entire issue. Social media is readily available as well, with standout quotes to tweet, and a variety of social media options as you read. I could go on, but one feature that is especially valuable is the ability to specifically search the magazine, podcast, and video libraries. Each of these has its own search engine, which means you can locate past articles, podcasts, and videos instantly in the Credo library of resources. In June we will release a new issue of Credo Magazine and you will experience firsthand how the magazine will read moving forward.
I cannot fail to mention the brand new podcast and video as well. Every other week a new Credo Podcast will release (see our first podcast: “What is simplicity?”). These are not superficial, but dig deep, challenging you to go into depth and learn theology from top theologians today. The podcast is really a “theological conversation” and you can listen in as I discuss the most significant doctrines of the faith with fellow theologians. But they are fun too! Not only am I having theological conversations, but occasionally I am also having personal ones, talking to friends about their lives, not just their doctrine. So for example, while I have sat down with the likes of Michael Kruger or David Bentley Hart, I have also had more personal conversations with Tom Schreiner. I hope you will find this mix refreshing. You can listen to the podcast on the website, but you can also listen on itunes and subscribe via RSS.
Finally, I must mention the new videos that will be appearing on Credo. Every month you will discover one to two new videos where theological questions are answered but in a way that is both brief and introductory (see our first video “What is the order of salvation?”). While the podcast goes deep, the videos are meant to introduce churchgoers, students, and pastors to key theological terms, ideas, and people. And I will not be the only one to do so, but from time to time other thinkers will do so as well. Sometimes these videos will focus on theology, but other times we will introduce the great names from church history or explore key concepts and passages in the Bible. In the future, keep an eye on our videos as sporadically we will release longer videos that provide short lectures and interviews with the best pastors and theologians today.
The release of the new Credo Magazine has not been without the help and support of others. We would like to express enormous gratitude and thanks to our partners, Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary and Mere Agency. The team at Mere Agency has done an outstanding job making these resources far more attractive and accessible, and the leadership at MBTS, especially Dr. Jason Allen, president of MBTS, and others like Dr. Jason Duesing, Charles Smith, Dave Wright, and Matthew Hines, among many others, have been instrumental.
Enough talking…explore Credo for yourself! And don’t forget to share Credo with your friends.
