Celebration and Changes in The Baptist Bulletin
January 2008 marks the seventy-fifth anniversary of The Baptist Bulletin. We’ve made several decisions recently that will allow the magazine to continue as a strong voice in our Association. Starting with the January/February 2008 issue, the Baptist Bulletin will be published six times a year in a bimonthly format. While subscribers will receive five fewer issues, we are expanding from 32 to 48 pages. We believe these changes will allow us to cover the broad range of topics our readers expect, while delivering the magazine in a cost-effective format. Along with these changes, we’ve slightly raised our group rates. Read more about these changes.
