ct1-01
In May of 1930, the first issue of Christianity Today [original series, 1930-1949] appeared, a publication seeking to serve as a voice for for conservatives with the Presbyterian Church in the U.S.A. Its masthead declared its mission: "A Presbyterian journal devoted to stating, defending and furthering the Gospel in the modern world." The magazine was the first publication issued by the newly formed Presbyterian and Reformed Publishing Company, founded by Samuel G. Craig. Later the company easily turned to the publication of books, with works by Loraine Boettner anchoring the growing list of publications.
From its inception, the magazine was issued monthly until the Spring of 1938, thereafter appearing three times a year. The final change in the magazine began with the Spring 1941 issue (Vol. 11, No. 3), when it was announced that the magazine would be discontinued as a periodical. Read more. . .

The Historical Center of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA) is a ministry of the PCA Stated Clerk’s Office, and is located in St. Louis, Missouri on the campus of Covenant Theological Seminary. Our mission is to preserve the records of the Presbyterian Church in America and to document the story of the conservative Presbyterian movement of the 20th & 21st centuries.In addition to the records of the PCA, the Center also serves as the repository of record for four other conservative Presbyterian denominations. The Center also houses the manuscript collections of about 150 people connected with those denominations, plus history materials for some 700 congregations. A modest research library of around 5,000 titles, covering all aspects of American Presbyterianism, augments the Center’s archival collections.
