**During this final fundraiser of our 2019/2020 fiscal year, we have asked editors and contributors to say a few words about Touchstone as we ask our readers to consider making a donation so that we can keep doing what we do.**

Dear Touchstone reader,
"Before I became a Christian, I mostly enjoyed sports, David Letterman, and comic books. After my conversion, I found a new intellectual hunger as my faith opened new vistas I hadn't even considered. Early on the books of Francis Schaeffer and C.S. Lewis helped me understand how to bring together faith and reason.
Not many years down that road I discovered Touchstone. I remember how excited I was to see that cover each month and to read it from cover to cover. Each issue was an invitation. I love to think about other young people having that same experience today. A big part of why I like to write for Touchstone is so I can encourage others in the great adventure of renewing their minds."
