Providence Magazine is the only publication devoted to Christian Realism in American foreign policy and is entirely funded by donor contributions. There are no advertisements, sponsorships, or paid posts to support the work of Providence, just readers who generously partner with Providence to keep our magazine running. If you would care to make an end-of-year donation it would be highly appreciated to help Providence in advancing the Christian realist perspective in 2024. Thank you!
