A New Culture Magazine – Culture11

Wednesday, August 27, 2008

Please see this email from an aquaintence of mine regarding a new online magazine which he is the managing editor. The “e-zine” is called Culture11. I encourage you to view it for yourself, comment here or at the magazine’s contact page.

His email writes:
I’m the managing editor of Culture11 (www.culture11.com), a new online magazine/social network that was started by Bill Bennett, David Kuo, Steve Forbes, et al. Today is our first day and rather than trying to get attention using traditional media, we’ve decided to announce our launch by reaching out to our friends.

Our goal for the site is to build a community around irresistibly interesting perspectives on life in America. From pop culture to politics, from faith to family, you’ll find original and entertaining stories here from some of the country’s most dynamic voices. (Note: It’s a lot cooler than that description makes it sound.)

I hope you’ll take a few moments to explore the site, perhaps add a diary entry, start a group, or read a few of the articles. We’re still in the beta stage and working out a few bugs so we could use your input. We also need to build buzz on the internet and throughout the blogosphere, so I hope you’ll mention us on your blog or forward this email to some friends.

With your help, we can make Culture11 something truly extraordinary – an online destination that has the editorial excellence of a great magazine, the thrill of a terrific conversation, and the comfort of a supportive community all rolled into one.

If you have any questions, comments, or would be interested in writing for our site, please contact me at joe@culture11.com.

Thanks for your help,

-Joe


As an aside to this magazine, also check out this magazine called Vanguard. From Nick Batzig, “a group of British professors, pastors, and teachers had been publishing for a number of years. The purpose of the magazine was to raise awareness, in the Christian community, of false teaching and movements towards apostasy in the church today. I found the reviews by Neil Richardson to be exceptionally helpful. The last issue published in Vanguard Magazine was in 2007 and was an introduction to the work of Brian McLarin, one of the principle leaders in the emergent church movement. There was also a Oct 2004 issue dedicated to an examination of the teaching of Steve Chalke–the man who claimed that the doctrine of penal substitutionary atonement was “cosmic child abuse.” You can find all the available issues online here. With the exception of their views on ethnic Israel in the New Covenant it seems that the Vanguard group has some valuable things to say.”
