The Blackbird Press is a magazine combining passion for reformation with unwavering loyalty to the church, rejecting the twin vices of foolish jingoism and abject cynicism. We resist the temptations of self-righteous separatism and lend our talents to solving the church’s many problems.
We oppose the selfishness and shallowness of our culture, not out of juvenile nonconformity, but out of acceptance of the fact that Christianity is countercultural to a world populated by the half-hearted, the double-minded, and unbelievers.
We believe Christianity is a mind-renewing, flesh-mortifying undertaking. We therefore commit to pursuing a life of virtue without compromise, and we combat hypocrisy with honesty, righteousness, and love.
We believe faith is no excuse for ignorance and anti-intellectualism, which stifle the church. Authentic faith provokes honest questions and fosters intellectual growth.
Lastly, we demolish cheesy, watered-down, noncommittal and unbiblical quasi-religions which masquerade as Christianity in academia and popular circles. We hope by our vigilance to reveal Christ, who stands apart from imposters.
