One of my favorite aspects of my role as CT’s senior editor of audience engagement is that I get to read every article we publish. One impact of that reading is that I know when a story doesn’t get the attention it deserves. Perhaps that’s because it’s explaining a complex theological concept, offering a nuanced cultural or historical argument, or reporting on a little-known reality in the global church—all of which can be hard to distill in a headline, a social media post, or a line in our daily newsletter.

As you read and reflect at the close of 2023, I offer this list of stories you may have missed this year in our print and digital pages.
