Divine Reflections: the Christian Nudist Journal

 

Introduction: Beginning in 1983, the Cunninghams produced 13 issues of Divine Reflections (DR). Originally intended to be merely a newsletter for a few dozen Christian naturists, soon hundreds of subscriptions came in from all over the English-speaking world. This publication helped explain the importance of Christian values to naturists. It also explained the naturist lifestyle from both a biblical and theological perspective. Though all issues are now out-of-print, CDs of each issue are available for $7 each. Order by item#.
