I'm very pleased to be able to read the Monitor on my iPad. When the online version is as good-looking as the print version, I'll be even happier. I wish there were an easy to use index since I never read the print version from front to back. Anyhow, it's great to read you online! Thanks.

The Christian Science Monitor gives me news as unbiased as it comes. It helps me understand the world I live in and helps me know what I can do to help make it better. Every week it brings me something to think and pray about. I recommend reading it regularly and you will be better informed. The Monitor represents news reporting at its best.

I am an American and my husband is Chinese-American. We both love the Monitor's balanced, thorough, professional, unbiased coverage of world news. The Monitor is a great source of information about all kinds of topics, large and small. It helps us stay current in 2012, when trying to keep up with the overwhelming feed of news and information coming at us is, as they say, "like trying to drink from a fire hose."

The CSM provides thoughtful, balanced, and deep coverage of national and international events. The writing is outstanding and the topics are thought-provoking. It is a news source you can absolutely trust, which is rare in our world today. As always, this magazine provides clarity without sensationalism and highlights not only the many facets of the challenges our world faces, but what is being done to solve them.

I have received the Christian Science Monitor for years. I like the way that they report the news, but best of all, I like the pictures, because each picture tells a story in itself. I am happy that the Christian Science Monitor is now on E-Readers and that I can have it with me at all times. It is honest reporting of the news.

I was happy with my subcription until I got this issue. I considered your publication informative, neutral and entretaining. Until this week's issue in which you have 3 different articles critizicing Obama and his wife in a subtle "professional" but still negative way. I am sorry to tell you it makes the publication sound like just another bitter republican publication, without the loud anger of the other ones but still whispering loudly.,Again really sad to cancel, got to keep looking for unbiased information.... let me tell you it is getting harder and harder to find it.

You don't have to be Christian to value the balanced, calm, varied, interesting writing and coverage of this wonderful magazine. This terrific readable resource is informative without being exploitative or hyped. It appeals to adults and young and youngish adults --- not only my wife and I but our three children ranging from 20 to 30 find it a great source as well. This magazine mixes excellent reporting with a thoughtful non-hyped presentation that looks at what is happening in the world, recognizes the facts. Not only do receive this magazine, i've also taken a (reduced rate, with magazine subscription) of the brief 3-page daily update. The two make a wonderful campanion set.

I believe part of the Monitor's mission is not just to report the news but in the case of bad news being proactive to show some potential solutions. I think Monitor writers and editors do this by highlighting how people are coping with what seems like a desperate situations and finding solutions. I like this because it doesn't leave you with the feeling that there is all kinds of bad in the world, but that hope and solutions are out there. I had a small experience with this about 20 years ago. It was during the time when the Soviet Union had just collapsed and there was a very real threat of widespread famine in Russia. A friend who worked as a program manager for a charitable foundation was tasked with delivering thousands of pounds of wheat to a orphanage in Russia. It appeared to be an impossible task and would very likely fail. However, at that time the Monitor published an article titled "North Dakota Farmers Send Aid to St. Petersburg". It was the perfect road map on how to get this food aid to the orphanage. Without the help of the wonderful people featured in this article the aid would never have reached the orphanage. It was a great article which to me highlights the solutions oriented nature of the Monitor.

If you see the world as a puzzle, there exists no better guide through the maze of dissonant voices than The Christian Science Monitor whose journalists are not only able to both articulate and synthesize opposing positions, but also neutralize extremes all the while diminishing no one. For over 57 years of my personal readership (from age 13 to 71) the Christian Science monitor has sustained my steadfast belief that balanced news interpretation is possible. Only the format has changed, not the mission.

As a university professor teaching critical thinking, I rely on this publication for non-biased, courageous (their reporter was captured a year or so ago!), and current information about world events.

The Christian Science Monitor has something for everyone. Originally a "newspaper" now a news magazine. The Monitor has its own overseas news bureaus in many countries and parts of the world. The Monitor covers countries you rarely see in the news anywhere else. Great section on tech issues and real people making a difference all over the world. Tells the story behind the story and examine trends in thought on a wide variety of topics. Amazing worldwide photo essays. Great buy in print or on-line. Highly recommend.

The Christian Science Monitor Magazine delivers well-researched, balanced news stories that help me understand not only the facts, but the significance of developments. I often find that the Monitor includes aspects of a story that I don't see in other news reporting. I have found over many years that the reporting is accurate and unbiased. I especially like the fact that it has a "whole world" view, reporting on events and developments that are significant to people everywhere. I guess it's because of the Monitor's long history and excellent reputation that its journalists have excellent access to many sources, and they're good at getting interviews with key people and insights on what's happening beneath the surface. The Monitor also often reports how people or organizations are working on solutions to problems and includes ways to support them, like links to their websites. I also love the other columns and features that cover a range of interesting and timely ideas and developments, from personal finance to cultural topics --books, movies, art, music, etc. It's a good read, and makes me feel not only more knowledgeable about what's going on in the world, but more engaged and empowered.

I love the reporting that does not condemn or approve the facts. I like to come to my own conclusions and be aware of happenings without opinions. It takes me several days to get through the magazine, as each article is meaningful. I especially like the articles about people helping people. Encouraging.!!

I love the timeliness of articles. The writers go more deeply than most other publications without the biases. It's refreshing to read stories that give the facts in an engaging way.

The Monitor is an exceptional publication in a time of greatly diminishing journalism. The editors and writers take an analytical view of what's going on in the world - not just reporting facts (no longer possible in our 24/7 and online news worlds) - and offer a depth of perspective and breadth of coverage that's difficult to find elsewhere. There are also few publications that cover international issues before they become crises. Reading the Monitor every week gives me a good picture on what's happening in African and South American countries on an ongoing basis, not just when a hurricane strikes or a war breaks out and threatens Americans' personal interests. Well written and balanced, this is a news outlet that can make us all more thoughtful global citizens.

This magazine covers global news with heart, it's the kind of news hard to find elsewhere. you feel closer to your global neighbor after reading it.

Goes beyond trendy news with in-depth articles about U.S. and overseas topics. The views are balanced and not slanted toward one point of view. Keeps me up-to-date on what is important regarding the news of the week.

By far the best, right in the middle newsweekly. Excellent international articles. A little more than the other weekly news magazines but you pay a little more for a lot better journalism.

CSM is exactly what I've come to expect in journalism. Don't be fooled by their name, they have the best world coverage in the world. On parallel with their larger peers (NYT, BBC, etc). You get an unbiased look at the world, I challenge you to find a better newspaper. I'm confident you will not. I am excited this is on the nook touch, but to take full advantage its best read on the nook color.

I have read the Monitor for thirty years, and have watched it change from a black-and-and white "fat" daily to a sleek, succinct 4-color publication--along with various electronic formats. Although its format has changed, it has kept the hallmarks for which I cherish it--as balanced reporting as one can expect, a keen eye for trends as well as a sharp, clear awareness of the details that contribute to trends, and a rock-solid belief that we--humans, that is--can, and should do better. Although the amount of content has certainly changed, the content itself has remained the same. Let's face it, people, much of "daily news" is blather--words to fill up space. The Monitor has never engaged in blather, and the honed version that I receive every week is a polished, well-crafted jewel, dense with information and thoughtful commentary.
