Aim and Audience
Christian Retailing, which is part of Charisma Media, aims to champion the world of Christian resources. For the Christian products industry, we aim to be the most trusted resource hub that provides critical information and insight to advance business and ministry.
Our readers include Christian retailers, church bookstores, publishers, music labels, distributors and others working and volunteering in the Christian products industry.
Types of Articles We Publish—or Not
Christian Retailing publishes features, a small number of news stories and columns of interest to our readers. We do not accept unsolicited content for publication.
At Charisma Media, we write in spirit and in truth. Philippians 1: 9-10 calls us to be “blameless” and approving of “things that are excellent.” With that foundation, we decry the practice of plagiarism, using another’s work without proper attribution.
As a writer, if you attempt to pass off someone else’s writing as your own or do not source your quotes or information correctly, we will reject your submission. Plagiarism can also occur when you use someone else’s argument or expression, so take care to cite the source.
Recycled content does not honor the spirit of excellence we seek to maintain in our writing. Plagiarism undermines the trust of our readers, which is critical to our work as journalists.
Editorial Direction for Requested Articles
Our standard when citing the Scriptures is the Modern English Version (MEV) Bible. Please use the MEV in your writing unless you need to use a different translation for a specific reason.
We follow Associated Press (newspaper) style with some exceptions. Our editors will edit your material according to this style.
Keep in mind that we do not use footnotes, but attribute as necessary within the article.
We generally prefer writing from a third-person point of view, although we make exceptions for certain types of content as deemed appropriate.
We may need to return your article for revisions or shorten it in the editing process.
