New Wineskins online magazine is for the spiritual seeker interested in broadening the understanding of contemporary culture and learning as impacted by issues of faith from the Judeo/Christian perspective. The publication commits to honest dialogue among Christians, calling upon the gifts of believers who have distinguished themselves in secular realms of endeavor as well as in theology that affirms the risen Christ, the Living Word.
New Wineskins will provide a forum for exploring how contemporary learning informs the person of faith and confirms the eternal truths of Jehovah God in every age.
Without sectarian bias, New Wineskins magazine and its related endeavors will pursue the promise that the Good News of Jesus Christ requires new wineskins for every age and cultural adaptation.
Founded in 1992, Wineskins was a print-only magazine produced by a group of editor/publishers; in 2001, The ZOE Group, Inc. assumed a ministry supervisory role. New Wineskins magazine was published by the ZOE Group, Inc. through 2010, and was published online only from 2003 through the present.
Most of the magazine's editorial staff and freelance writers have roots in the Restoration movement, including the churches of Christ and Christian Church. That heritage continues to be honored as vital while challenging traditional church assumptions by freshly approaching scripture again and again.
The magazine's readership and contributors have been, for all these years, Christians seeking to honor Jesus Christ in their lives, believing that "We are Christians only but not the only Christians." With this understanding, New Wineskins is but one ministry among thousands of ministries worldwide that give glory and honor to God.
