Equipping Your Reimagine Journey

Just curious as to how many of you miss the Discipleship Journal magazine?  I have almost every issue from number 25 to the last one they put out.  I have read and re-read them many times, and have even used many of the articles as Bible study lessons.

 

I was thinking of getting the dvd rom they have for sale that has all of the issues on it...but I guess in some ways I am very "old school", as I like to have a magazine to hold and look at.

 

Not a serious discussion here, just more of a "wondering if I was the only one" discussion.

I miss it as well.
My wife and I both loved it. I think the DVD rom would be a great investment, and I would get if we could afford it. I'm sure it's searchable by topic, which would be VERY helpful in sermon and Bible study prep.

I do miss it also and often read DJ articles online in the archives. Guess I'm with you in the "old school" mindset of preferring to have a magazine in my hands instead of being bound by the technology of a computer for reading these articles.
I agree with you Beve!

Yeah, I miss it -- and I have been disappointed with the "replacement" subscription to Bible Study Magazine. It's not a bad magazine, but the focus is totally different. Although it is intended for those in full-time leadership, if you have a ministry mindset I think you will find that Leadership Journal can fill the void. You can sign up at the link to receive a free sample issue.
I miss the print magazine also. I subscribed to it for many years. I guess it is just too expensive to put out a print publication.

We're working on a way to provide access to archived articles on this site. Stay tuned. I think this could be a great resource!

That's a great idea.  I've tried searching for specific articles and can't seem to find them.  My favorite part of the magazine was the last page where writings from some ancient church father was included.  I enjoy "ancient" wisdom.

I miss it. I have the electronic version of it for my LOGOS software but I wish they would have kept it going.
I miss it as well. It is difficult to find a suitable replacement for DJ magazine, with its focus on quality and personal growth. I live in Norway, and there are not many good alternatives as far as I know. I would welcome any suggestions to which magazines (that ships internationally) that could be a suitable replacement?

I miss it too and haven't seen anything that I would consider a suitable replacement. 

I would love to get my hands on a stack of back issues, as I already have several & find them of great interest & inspiration.  I've been thinking that some of the articles might make an interesting session for the home group my husband & I attend.  The one thing I've noticed about the older issues that I have, however, is how masculine they are in their approach, comparatively speaking.  The emphasis is much more left-brained than right-brained-- more focused on Bible exposition & practical, in-the-field experience.  The more recent issues that I've read are much more feminine-- much more focused on feelings, the subjective, relationships, etc.  I've been wondering when the change occurred.  I find I have to alternate newer issues of DJ w/those of Biblical Illustrator to really get a sense of satisfaction, but that's just me.  And I, too, am a bit of a Luddite when it comes to modern technology.  If the CD really is complete (& works on my computer), I'll probably pick it up if I can find it for a good enough price, but nothing beats the comforting feel of a hard-copy in my hands.
