Carol Stream, IL September 16, 2015 – Christianity Today invites Christian leaders to pledge their commitment to Beautiful Orthodoxy through the new website

The global media ministry’s core cause, Beautiful Orthodoxy is CT’s overarching response to culture’s turn toward ugly orthodoxy and attractive heresy—or truth spoken in shrill and unloving ways and falsehood spoken in winsome and compelling fashion. 

Harold Smith, President and CEO, says, “Since our founder Billy Graham’s desire to focus this ministry on Gospel conviction and Christ-centered love, Christianity Today has taken the lead in strengthening the church by richly communicating the breadth of the true, good, and beautiful gospel.”

Commenting on today’s most important issues, Christianity Today presents a vision for the world that reflects Christ’s love, redemption, and restoration. And now through, Christianity Today is calling leaders to join this cause by reflecting and living out Christ’s love and truth in their jobs, ministries, and communities. 

Samuel Rodriguez, president of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, says about Beautiful Orthodoxy, “If we are to ‘be light’ then we must remove all vestiges of contention, bitterness, apathy, complacency, and anger while we stand on His word projecting grace.” 

Founder and CEO of Joni and Friends, Joni Eareckson Tada, stated, “In a society that boasts individualism, Beautiful Orthodoxy champions a different idea—that the Christian family can showcase sacrificial service to the world.”

A day to publicly pledge your commitment to Beautiful Orthodoxy on social media has been set for Thursday, September 24, 2015 and can be done through
