Here’s a link to Christianity Today’s top 10 list of stories for 2011. CT presents a whole lot of important religious news stories here with links to the originals written at the time. Here’s their criteria statement for the list:
“The events, people, and debates of the past year that have shaped, or will significantly shape, evangelical life, thought, or mission”
Here’s the first 5:
2. States adopt 80 abortion restrictions in their 2011 legislative sessions, an all-time high (the previous record was 34).
4. John Stott, evangelical statesman, pastor, and builder of the global church, dies at 90.
5. Beijing’s Shouwang Church holds outdoor services for more than six months, enduring mass arrests as it leads China’s booming house churches in unprecedented demands for religious freedom.
