ORLANDO, April 30 /Christian Newswire/ -- RELEVANT Media Group, Inc. announces its May/June 2007 issue of RELEVANT magazine. The cover story, "In God We Trust?," takes a look at the effect of consumerism among young Christians and features interviews with noted speakers and authors Don Miller, Tony Campolo, Shane Claiborne and Dave Goetz.


"There's been an undercurrent of this message in our magazine for years, but especially in the last year or so," Founder and CEO Cameron Strang said. "The issue of money and its role in our lives is something we've addressed in various ways, but we've never hit it head-on. It was time."


Additional highlights include:


  • Q&A with Eugene Peterson—He's best known for writing The Message, an acclaimed modern translation of the Bible. In a conversation with RELEVANT, Peterson discusses prayer, the mystery of God and why he snubbed Bono.


  • Secret Worshippers: A Look at the Cost of Following Christ in China—Lesley Miller gives a firsthand account of the passion of the nation's underground church and the dangers facing believers in the communist state.


  • Five Epic Summer Road Trips—Whether you're more "Granola Trail" or "Rock 'n' Roll Highway," these cross-country routes have something for everyone.


  • Making a Difference: Five Entrepreneurs Whose Faith Has Fueled Their Dreams—From a cutting-edge motion graphics studio to a philanthropic shoemaker, the feature interviews young business people who are changing the world one idea at a time.


  • Music features include interviews with R&B's Chrisette Michele, Southern rockers Kings of Leon and modern rockers Lovedrug.
