Below is a list of journals and magazines that center on biblical studies, Christian living, and Church history.  Thanks to the internet, many such journals and magazines are readily available to the eager learner.  In this list you will find both hard copy and electronic journals. [Note: I do not necessarily subscribe to every viewpoint in these resources.]

Credo (The Magazine)
Credo magazine is self-consciously Evangelical, Reformational, and Baptistic: Evangelical since it aims at being supremely Gospel-centered, exalting in the substitutionary death and historical resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ; Reformational as the gospel it promotes is defined by the solas of the Reformation; and while Credo magazine welcomes contributors from diverse ecclesial backgrounds, it seeks to especially celebrate those doctrines that mark the Baptist tradition.

Themelios (by The Gospel Coalition)
Themelios is an international evangelical theological journal that expounds and defends the historic Christian faith. Its primary audience is theological students and pastors, though scholars read it as well. It was formerly a print journal operated by RTSF/UCCF in the UK, and it became a digital journal operated by The Gospel Coalition in 2008. The editorial team draws participants from across the globe as editors, essayists, and reviewers.
