Archive Articles

Several readers have asked how to locate articles from Americas archives on our new Web site. All articles from 2001 until the present are available, and free, to all who register. You can search our database by author, keyword or title on our advanced search page. You can also search by issue by entering the month and year of the issue youre looking for at the bottom of the advanced search page.

Another option: check out our archive page, which features links to the last six months of issues. We plan to add links to issues from past years in the near future.

And for those looking for "The Word" column from past years, visit "The Good Word," our new blog on Scripture and preaching. Every week well post links to Word commentaries for the upcoming Sunday. The blog will also feature daily reflections from a roster of experts in the field.

If you have any questions, feel free to write a response below.
