.- Publishers of Crisis Magazine, a Catholic monthly that went out of print in 2007, announced that the publication is being relaunched online. 

Morley Publishing Group chairman Laurance Alvarado said on May 10 that the “board and staff are thrilled to resurrect a brand that, for 25 years, fought for faithful Catholicism, sound economics, and limited government.”

The magazine was founded in 1982 by Ralph McInerny and Michael Novak.

“When Ralph and Michael started Crisis, it was a sixteen-page pamphlet,” Alvarado said. “Through their efforts, and the hard work of former and longtime publisher Deal W. Hudson, that pamphlet became the flagship publication for faithful Catholics.”

In 2007, however, staff members cited the decline of the print industry and transferred Crisis magazine online as InsideCatholic.com. Publishers said the move doubled the magazine’s monthly readership within two months.

“It was a win-win situation for us,” said Brian Saint-Paul, editor and president of the publishing group.

“However, with today’s technology – particularly the iPad, and other mobile devices – magazines can now thrive in digital form.”

Saint-Paul added that readership trends “suggest that at some point in the next 12 to 24 months, we’ll reach a tipping point where Americans choose mobile devices over computers for their news, articles, and other media.”

“That’s our inspiration and our goal,” he said.
