From CT news editor Daniel Silliman: I like to look ahead. And here at CT, we’re planning for the new year and all the stories we want to tell in 2022—what evangelicals are doing around the world, what they’re thinking, and how they’re responding to the changing times.
But you know who’s really planning ahead? These guys in Germany who have been growing their beards for almost a year, so they can be more like Jesus come Easter.

Evangelicals are making peace inside Argentinian prisons.
