Christian Research Journal Reads

This podcast, CHRISTIAN RESEARCH JOURNAL Reads, presents audio versions of CHRISTIAN RESEARCH JOURNAL articles. As the flagship publication of the Christian Research Institute, the JOURNAL seeks to equip followers of Christ to think and to live Christianly—to exercise truth and experience life.

Persevere in them, because if you do, you will save both yourself and your hearers.” The CHRISTIAN RESEARCH JOURNAL enjoyed a print incarnation of almost 45 years. Now exclusively an online publication, the JOURNAL consists of thousands of free articles on We hope that through these audio articles you are not only equipped to proclaim and defend your faith but that as a disciple you also draw closer to Christ in your walk with Him. You can find the written version of each article that is an episode of C HRISTIAN RESEARCH JOURNAL Reads at the website of the Christian Research Institute, equip.org.
