What would the Bible have to say about bullying or peace-making or peer pressure or sexual purity? - photo by Herb Scribner
Focus on the Family revived Brio, a Christian magazine for teen girls thats been billed as a conservative alternative to Teen Vogue and Cosmopolitan, in April, according to The New York Times.

The magazine, which shut down in 2009, relaunched last month and has more than 56,000 subscribers already, the Times reported.

The magazine hopes to provide a biblical worldview for teens, the magazines publisher, Bob DeMoss, told The New York Times.

What would the Bible have to say about bullying or peace-making or peer pressure or sexual purity? DeMoss told the Times. Focus on the Family would say and Brio would reflect: Hey, sex was Gods idea so why not follow the game plan that he laid out in the Bible? And youre not going to get that in the pages of Seventeen, lets be clear.

Unlike other popular teen magazines (which often feature Selena Gomez or Kylie Jenner on the front covers), Brio included just one celebrity Sadie Robertson of Duck Dynasty fame.

The May edition of the magazine also condemned Eminem, while highlighting Kyle Matthews, a Christian artist from Greenville, South Carolina.
