Here’s my June 18 newsletter. To receive my latest articles, favorite religion reads and other updates in your inbox every Saturday, sign-up here.
I’m excited to share my article on fathers and faith, as well as one on infidelity-related accusations during election season. Both pieces made the front page of this week’s print edition, and I’m still smiling about the layout.
I also want to draw your attention to the first article in the Top Religion Reads section, “The unbelievable tale of Jesus’ wife.” It investigates the origin story of ‘The Gospel of Jesus’ Wife,’ a scrap of papyrus with Coptic text that was presented in 2012. Thanks to some truly amazing reporting, we all now know a little more about the fragment’s suspicious owner.
The article will take you more than 45 minutes to read, but it will be worth it, I swear! Curl up with a cup of coffee and the latest edition of The Atlantic and you’ll be well on your way to an awesome weekend.
