Awake! is a semimonthly journal of about 30 pages published by the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society of New York, Inc. The Office of Public Information of Jehovah's Witnesses describes it as "a general-interest newsmagazine with a religious slant."

Inside each issue of Awake! is this explanation:

This journal is published for the enlightenment of the entire family. It shows how to cope with today's problems. It reports the news, tells about people in many lands, examines religion and science. But it does more. It probes beneath the surface and points to the real meaning behind current events, yet it always stays politically neutral and does not exalt one race over another. Most important, this magazine builds confidence in the Creator's promise of a peaceful and secure new world that is about to replace the present wicked, lawless system of things. {6}

Past issues of both The Watchtower and Awake! can be read on the official Watchtower website.
