Britain's first magazine for Christian men – Sorted - is being launched on 1 November with contributions from top Christian writers.
Evangelist Steve Legg, and editor of his tabloid newspaper The Son, Hugh Southon, is busily putting together the first edition.
Among those who have agreed to write for the 44-page glossy are Jeff Lucas, Rob Parsons, J John, Steve Chalke, Eric Delve, Gerald Coates, Shane Lynch and Baz Gascoyne.
The first issue will address such thorny areas as: What does God thing about sex? Is it OK to have a beer? and What should be our response to Islam?
Said Steve: “This project has been on my heart for several years. Christian men struggle daily with the same temptations as non-believers.
“I believe God desperately wants to do something for them and over recent weeks he has brought a team of guys together who can now make this happen.
“Hugh will edit it whilst a young man – Ben Fairthorne – has arrived from secular magazines to take on the role of assistant editor. We also have a top businessman on board - Dave Darnton - as advertising manager.”
While it will centre on the Christian response to many difficult problems Sorted will also include a gadgets’ page, movie previews, motoring coverage, a “Sex Doc” and “60-Second Vicar.”
Said Steve: “There’s a perception that Christian men have too much heaven on their minds to be bothered with such stuff – not true – and we will look at all areas of interest to them.
“We are already getting a feedback from advertisers in the secular world that they are delighted a ‘wholesome’ publication for men is on the way.
“One senior executive from a major firm said: “We’re fed up with having to get down there among the smut – this is a brilliant concept.”
Sorted will retail at £2.50 and is available on subscription at £12.50 a year. It is bi-monthly for now but such is the interest the publishers expect to go monthly within 12 months.
