2017 Nativity Fundraiser

Each passing day brings reminders that we’re living in a tumultuous era, one that presents the Church with complex and urgent challenges. The Wheel, an independent journal of Orthodox Christianity, seeks to engage with these challenges and to articulate the Gospel for our pluralistic world. That’s why Metropolitan Savas (Zembillas) of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America called the journal “the bright dawn of a good day in the life of Orthodox Christianity in the 21st century.”

The Journal 

Since its founding in 2015, The Wheel has published 10 quarterly issues. Each acclaimed volume tackles a contemporary topic in theology, sociology, bioethics, or the arts. In every issue, readers encounter thoughtful critical writing alongside pastoral reflections, poetry, and art, all in a well-designed volume worthy of a permanent place on the bookshelf.

The Wheel is also a resource for theological scholarship, and is being acquired by more and more academic libraries. Students benefit from timely critical writing along with translations of important texts and articles from less accessible languages. Daniel Struve of Le messager orthodoxe has hailed The Wheel  as “A journal of universal dimension, in which Orthodox thinkers from different countries can freely ponder and discuss urgent contemporary issues.”

How You Can Help 

We need your help to continue this mission. While we’re encouraged by The Wheel’s expanding readership, subscription revenues alone are insufficient to sustain production. As an independent enterprise, the journal depends on the generosity of benefactors like you. Can you make a contribution during this Advent season? Your gift will enable us to make The Wheel better and spread the word farther. It will also help us make The Wheel accessible to those who can’t afford a full subscription, through programs such as our special 50% discount for seminarians.

Writers published in The Wheel include a diverse array of scholars, clergy, and laity from around the world.
