According to the leader column in Third Way magazine (spotted by Tractorgirl) the magazine is to become part of GJ Palmer and Sons, the company that publishes the Church Times (and therefore my cartoons). GJ Palmer is one of the subsidiaries of Hymns Ancient and Modern, others being SCM-Canterbury Press (who publish my book) and the Church House bookshop.
I like Third Way, though I’m afraid I’m an occasional purchaser rather than a regular subscriber. This does look like a good way for it to survive though, so that is good.
Tractor Girl also notes that Faithworks now have a magazine too. It is published by CCP Ltd, the people who do Christianity magazine, Youthwork magazine and Christian Marketplace magazine.
It sems to me that the Christian magazine marketplace is becoming a bit crowded, especially the Evangelical bit. Titles like Inspire and Christian Today have a strong internet presence already, and one might think that could be where the future lies. Can all these magazines survive? I don’t know.
