Would You Consider Supporting Me As a Patron?

I have been blogging at Challies.com on a daily basis for over 15 years. In that time I have written thousands of articles, reviewed hundreds of books, prepared a collection of graphics and infographics, recorded a whole collection of videos and podcasts, and published quite a few books. All the while I have attempted to keep my focus on issues that are of particular interest to Christians. In the last year, visitors to the site read nearly 20 million articles., while millions …

My New Book: Run to Win

As so many readers of this site settle into your Thanksgiving weekends (and the holiday season that follows it), I want to make you aware of a new book that may be of interest to you–my newest book, as it happens. Run to Win: The Lifelong Pursuits of a Godly Man began on this site with a short series of articles that explored issues particularly relevant to Christian men. The response was significant enough that I decided to edit, improve, …

New: Challies Daily Podcast (Audio Blog)

Through the years I’ve been asked a number of times if I’d consider releasing the content of this blog in audio format. I’ve thought about it often, but have never quite been able to make the pieces come together. That was the case, at least, until recently. I think I’ve now got a structure in place that can actually work. So today I present the Challies Daily Podcast through which you’ll be able to listen to the content of this …

My New Book: Devoted

Today I am pleased to announce the release of a new book titled Devoted: Great Men and Their Godly Moms. Those who have been reading this site for a while will remember a series of blog articles I wrote after spotting a trend in the lives of Christian men–many of them count their mother as their primary spiritual influence. These articles formed the basis for the book and since then they have been edited, improved, and expanded. Most importantly, I …

Launching Today: Challies en español

Over the past few years, one of the most common recurring questions from readers has been this: “Can I translate your articles?” Though I’ve received requests that represent many different languages, none has been more persistent than the requests for Spanish. Today I’m thrilled to announce that I am now offering a Spanish edition of my site. You can find it at es.challies.com. The initial articles you will find there represent some of my “best-of” work, the most popular English-language …

Sponsors, Affiliates, and Patrons: How I Do What I Do

Bringing you this site is my full-time occupation. I love what I do and am thrilled to have the opportunity to do it. I seldom speak about finances, but did want to raise the subject today. My primary source of income is the sponsored posts that I share almost every Monday (so please read them!). However, as you may have noticed, there have been a couple of recent weeks for which I was not able to book one of those …

Please Help Me By Taking the 2014 Readers’ Survey

I would like to ask for your help, and all it will take is about 2 minutes of your time. Would you mind lending a hand? I have been at this blogging thing for a long time, but that certainly does not mean that I’ve got it all figured out.

Sponsored Posts

For many years now I have relied on advertising to cover the costs associated with hosting and maintaining this site. As the site has grown (there were well over a million visits last month!) I have relied on several different forms of advertising to do this. Almost a year ago I decided I would abandon the model that places a long series of banner ads all over the site and move instead to sponsorships–Christian companies or ministries that will exclusively …
