Anne Snyder Appointed Editor-in-Chief of Comment Magazine


May 13, 2019

HAMILTON, ON – Think tank Cardus is pleased to announce that author, journalist, and public intellectual Anne Snyder is the new editor-in-chief of Comment ­­– one of the leading Christian thought journals in North America. In celebration of this new moment, all are welcome to enjoy Comment’s entire online collection without a paywall. For a limited time, new guests and print subscribers alike can read 35 years of Comment to the brim of their hearts and minds.

Ray Pennings, publisher of Comment and executive vice president of Cardus, is confident Snyder will advance the magazine’s mission.

“Anne represents a new generation of Christian thinkers, so it’s exciting that she’ll provide editorial leadership for Comment,” says Pennings. “Her journalistic credentials and fresh take on contemporary issues will help the magazine break through the din of media voices to provide readers with accessible, artistic, and diverse commentary on how Christians can be faithfully present in North American culture.”

Having served as a contributing editor to Comment, Snyder says she’s excited to lead a magazine at the nexus of North American cultural conversations.

“I love Comment,” says Snyder. “No other magazine has challenged me so consistently with such big questions, playing an important role in my own thinking as a Christian seeking to interpret our times. It would be an honour to amplify that role for the benefit of a wider pool of writers and readers. The world is hungry for a moral lens that is both ancient and future-oriented, coherent yet open to new ideas.”

Snyder is the Director of The Philanthropy Roundtable‘s Character Initiative, a Fellow at the Houston-based Center for Opportunity Urbanism, and a Senior Fellow at The Trinity Forum. She holds a Master’s degree in journalism from Georgetown University and a B.A. in philosophy and international relations from Wheaton College (IL). She has been published widely, including in Comment, The Atlantic Monthly, The Washington Post, City Journal, and elsewhere. In March of 2019, Snyder published her first book, The Fabric of Character.
