Dear tothesource readers,

For 15 years, we’ve been privileged to publish weekly emails on current cultural issues with the aim of equipping pastors, church leaders, and others who wish to faithfully engage the culture. We are grateful for the donors who made our no-fee publication possible.

Although we will not be providing new content after this week, our website will remain live so that the rich database of over 700 articles can be accessed and read.


We would also like to introduce to you a couple of kindred publications that we highly recommend, listed below.

It’s been a privilege to serve you. Happy New Year from the team at!



Providence: A Journal of Christianity & American Foreign Policy website

Providence: A Journal of Christianity & American Foreign Policy is a new publication helping Christians connect the historic intellectual resources of their faith to issues of national security, war, diplomacy, the global economy, political and military ethics, and the like. Human beings, made in the image of God, have a divine mandate to exercise dominion—providential care—over creation. This means that a just political ethic is necessarily an ethic of responsibility. This responsibility isn’t, of course, absolute but only partial. We have a say, partially, in history for the conditions of history. Americans, uniquely among nations, have been given unprecedented power, wealth, and political rights—and thus have an unprecedented responsibility to use them well. The Christian theological tradition has much to say about how to do this. Sharing similar passions as tothesource, we provide bracing commentary to help Christians wield ancient truth to shed light on modern times. We publish quarterly in print and daily at We also have a weekly newsletter that provides brief commentary and a roundup of the week’s top stories. We would be thrilled to have you join our community by signing up for our newsletter—which you can do by clicking here. If interested, we would be very happy to send you a copy of our print journal as well. Most of the essays from past issues are available at our website. Finally, we want to take this opportunity to thank the team at tothesource for many years of faithful service to both Christ and culture. Their voice was an important one and will be missed. But the work continues and we invite you to join us in taking a share of it on.


Public Discourse website

Public Discourse is an online publication of the Witherspoon Institute that seeks to enhance the public understanding of the moral foundations of free societies by making the scholarship of the fellows and affiliated scholars of the Institute available and accessible to a general audience.


The Center for Bioethics and Culture Network website

The Center for Bioethics and Culture Network (CBC) addresses bioethical issues that most profoundly affect our humanity, especially issues that arise in the lives of the most vulnerable among us. We work through a variety of media platforms—documentary film, writing, speaking, interviews, social media, and more—to educate and inform members of the general public, thought leaders, lawmakers, and others on ethical issues in healthcare, biomedical research, and biotechnological advancement.
