A Necessary Anniversary

The Contemporary & the Timeless Intersect for 30 Years by James M. Kushiner

Thirty years ago last October, a few hundred copies of a new 12-page newsletter called Touchstone were printed. The name Touchstone was chosen because it pointed to the existence of a timeless standard against which to test the quality of contemporary Christianity.

Touchstone emerged as a natural expression of a local Evangelical Christian fellowship's concern to follow what is called in Jeremiah 6:16 the "ancient path," which promises rest for our souls, the same path that is called "the faith once for all delivered to the saints."

"There are magazines worth reading but few worth saving . . . Touchstone is just such a magazine."
—Alice von Hildebrand

"Here we do not concede one square millimeter of territory to falsehood, folly, contemporary sentimentality, or fashion. We speak the truth, and let God be our judge. . . . Touchstone is the one committedly Christian conservative journal."
—Anthony Esolen, Touchstone senior editor
