Comment magazine serves Christian leaders and culture makers with rooted, fresh ideas for the faithful practice of North American public life. Leaning on 2000 years of Christian thought, we seek a renewed social architecture - "not new wine into old wine-skins, but old wine in new wineskins for festive drinking" (Calvin Seerveld, "Footprints in the Snow").

Comment works to:

Comment is the first principles journal of Cardus, a think tank dedicated to the renewal of North American social architecture. We publish online essays, reviews, and opinions, as well as a print edition.
