VIRTUE magazine will cease publication after its December/January 2000 issue due to insufficient readership.

Christianity Today. (CTI) purchased VIRTUE from Cook Communications Ministries of Colorado Springs, Colorado, in April 1998 (CT, May 18, 1998, p. 15), bringing to 13 the number of magazines published by the Carol Stream, Illinois–based ministry.

Magazines published by CTI include Coday, LEADERSHIP, TODAY'S CHRISTIAN WOMAN, and CAMPUS LIFE. CTI is located on the Internet at
