There are now dozens of Christian news agencies and online news sources, dozens of websites and printed magazines that discuss Bible-related news. So what's a person to do to keep up-to-date?
Of course, you can take the time (if you have it) to visit a number of Christian news sites and to read several magazines each week in order to keep abreast of what is going on, but if you are like us you don't always have time to do that.
A useful alternative is to simply visit the Bible Gateway blog each week to read Jonathan Petersen's excellent "Bible News Roundup." Usually published each Sunday, the "Roundup" gives a useful summary of important Bible and other faith-related news on subjects ranging from people to printings, and from digs to dioceses!
The updates are given in the form of short clear titles with links to articles giving the full story in each case. This headline approach enables Roundup readers to quickly search the news for items of interest and concern and to be able to instantly access full information on a given subject.
So much transpires in Bible-related news each day that it's not easy to be aware of all that is happening. It can seem like we are standing on the banks of a veritable river of non-stop news that is flowing past us. But checking the Roundup column each week can go a long way toward helping us actually keep up with the stream!
