Christian Journalists…

Fred Barnes is one of my favorite journalist/commentators. He’s trying to live out his faith as a Jesus-apprentice in one of the least Jesus-apprentice-friendly atmospheres – the newsroom.

Barnes argues that believers ought to make more of an impact on their profession and their world in this article from Boundless

The truth is, Christian journalists in America have it relatively easy. Sure, journalism is a breathtakingly materialist profession. And, yes, newsrooms often are hostile environments to people who take their Christian faith seriously. I�ve talked to many young Christians who steer clear of mainstream journalism for exactly this reason. But Christ didn�t promise us a congenial environment � quite the contrary. My advice to young journalists is to gut it out. There will always be enough writers for Christian publications, but never enough Christian writers and reporters to go around in the secular media.
