Editor's Picks

—Douglas Johnson, Touchstone Deputy Editor

I picked up my first issue of Touchstone off the magazine rack at my church about twelve years ago. I had years of experience with church magazine racks, so I wasn’t expecting much. I’ve been playing catch-up on back issues ever since. You can read some of my favorite articles here.
