“When the Vow (Almost) Breaks.” “Forgiveness That Transcends.” “The
Devil in Pew No. 7.” Those are just a few of the impactful headlines in
the January 2011 issue of Charisma magazine.
The new year is all
about starting with a clean slate, says Charisma Editor Marcus Yoars.
Beyond the resolutions that are likely to fade by the end of the month,
he says, New Year’s represents a chance to start over again. That’s why
the January 2011 issue of Charisma focuses on the theme of forgiveness
and its power in giving people a second chance.
“Our cover story
highlights a remarkable couple who, through the power of forgiveness,
overcame infidelity and an unexpected pregnancy to now counsel thousands
of couples each year,” Yoars says. “We also tell the incredible account
of about a family who paid the highest price to forgive a man obsessed
with making their lives a living nightmare. Those stories, along with
some challenging teachings on forgiveness from respected pastors Brian
Zahnd and R.T. Kendall and an entire section devoted to celebrating the
‘Year of the Bible,’ make this an issue readers will find useful beyond
Other articles in Charisma’s January issue include
“How Did We Get the Bible?” in which Bible scholar Craig S. Keener
explains the history and canonization of the Word in laymen’s terms.
Meanwhile, freelance writer Ken Walker looks at ministries translating
the Bible in record time for the world’s most remote cultures in an
article entitled, “When God Doesn’t Speak Your Language.” And Charisma
marks the one-year anniversary of Haiti’s devastating earthquake with a
special report on how Christian organizations continue to offer hope and
healing as the country rebuilds.
