Frequently Asked Questions about Christian Standard’s move to monthly

When will Christian Standard become a monthly publication?
Why this move?
We see copies of Christian Standard left over at our church. We think we’ll just cut back on our order.
I just renewed my individual subscription at $45, but I see the new annual price is lower. Will you refund me the difference?
Will my price for Christian Standard increase?
Is The Lookout going monthly too? What about the cost for The Lookout?


When will Christian Standard become a monthly publication?
Christian Standard’s first monthly edition will be dated September 2012.


Why this move?
We believe the monthly Christian Standard will be a more contemporary magazine for today’s reader.

It will be at least 64 pages each month, 4 times the size of our current 16-page weekly edition.

This longer format will allow us to devote more space to important issues when this is warranted.

The new magazine will be more attractive, a better reading experience, than the current weekly.

The new monthly will feature an assortment of new columns with helpful input for elders, ministers, small group leaders, and more—all in one place every month.

A monthly magazine will have more appeal to new and younger readers than the current 16-page weekly. We will work hard to attract new and younger readers!

Mailing this one magazine once per month will be much more economical than mailing a weekly.

Putting all the content together in one monthly edition makes more sense to readers and churches than the current plan of receiving 4 weekly editions at one time in the mail.

We see copies of Christian Standard left over at our church. We think we’ll just cut back on our order.
The monthly editions will be current for four or five weeks. If a reader misses Christian Standard at your church one week, it will still be there and still be current for him the following week. You should probably consider ordering more!


I just renewed my individual subscription at $45, but I see the new annual price is lower. Will you refund me the difference?
We can’t offer you a refund. You will receive the full year of content you paid for.


Will my price for Christian Standard increase?
We have not raised the price on Christian Standard for many years. Meanwhile printing, paper, and postage costs have continued to go up.

Current plans are to continue Lookout’s weekly editions at its current pricing.

We believe churches should provide The Lookout every week for every family and Christian Standard every month for every leader.
