Miras (Inheritance Magazine)

In the picture above in the left-hand corner is the first Christian magazine that I know of to come out in Turkey. It is called Miras which means Inheritance. A good friend of mine had a lot to do with getting this magazine out. So I'm very excited for him, but I'm also excited about the possibilities that a magazine like this may offer. In this first issue there is an article written by Ravi Zacharias that has been translated into Turkish. The article deals with the question, "Is there a meaning to evil and suffering?" Very pertinent question for this country. There are also articles written about what the Gospel is and one in particular about Dietrich Bonhoeffer and the price he paid in following Christ. I'm excited to see how it will be received by those who do not follow Christ. A magazine at times can almost give people the impression that they are tolerant or cultured because they are reading it. We'll see....
