CREED & CULTURE: A TOUCHSTONE READER


In Creed & Culture, Touchstone editor James M. Kushiner brings together twenty-one essays that originally appeared in the magazine. These thoughtful articles by an impressive roster of contributors not only make for absorbing reading, but also constitute a valuable compendium of the best contemporary Christian thinking on literature, culture, and theology. As Kushiner writes in the introduction, these essays "speak conscientiously for the gospel in a time in which creed and culture seem to be at grave risk." Order Today!
