First and foremost, I’d like to thank you for your association with eRenlai.
You can be assured, of course, that we will continue to do all we can to bring you the same excellent standards of intelligent, insightful journalism that eRenlai is known for.
But I’m writing in particular to tell you that we’re also broadening our horizons, as we’ve become partners in the launch of an exciting new project: Global Pulse.
This is a major initiative which we are very happy to be part of. We believe it to be unique, because it brings together five of the world’s leading Catholic publishers to give you a truly global view.
With constantly updated fresh content that will appeal to a predominantly Catholic international readership, Global Pulse will be offered ultimately on a subscription basis. But it will be free throughout October so you can get a good feel for what it has to offer.
Global Pulse will not be a ‘Church publication’ as such, but one that looks at events and people of global significance from a discerning, intelligent, Catholic perspective.
With news briefs, features, analysis, opinion, reviews and reflections, its ever-changing content will be drawn from five global partners, each with an acknowledged reputation for quality Catholic journalism.
As well as contributions from eRenlai, you will see articles from all these participants in this exciting project:
- Commonweal Magazine, New York City
- La Croix, Paris
- Eureka Street, Melbourne
- ucanews.com, Bangkok
In addition, we’re delighted to announce that Robert Mickens, the acclaimed Rome-based reporter and commentator, will be editor in chief of Global Pulse. He will contribute his celebrated ‘Letter from Rome’ each week and will also bring you exclusive letters and essays from correspondents of the highest caliber, based in all parts of the world.
It all adds up to a truly global selection of incisive, informative and thought-provoking writing which I’m sure you will find engaging and enjoyable.
As an introductory offer, for a limited period only, Global Pulse will be available for just US$22 for a full year’s access. That’s the same price as a few cups of coffee – yet I hope you will agree it will prove a great deal more stimulating.
Subscribing will be quick and easy, but you don’t have to make your mind up yet. Because access will be completely free of charge throughout October, you’re more than welcome to take a good look around Global Pulse right now, and see what it has to offer you.
