The Dutch Adventist Church creates a magazine, Contact, that goes to about 3000 people who are interested in the Bible.

In the limited space available, I tried to show how the Bible has been preserved by copyists and the challenges that these manuscripts bring into Bible reading. It also has pretty pictures of ancient manuscripts! Read it here.
