Item description for Creed & Culture: A Touchstone Reader by James M. Kushiner...

Launched in 1987, Touchstone magazine has served as an indispensable forum for the ecumenical consideration of matters of crucial importance to Protestant, Catholic, and Orthodox Christians. In Creed & Culture, 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 his introduction, these essays "speak conscientiously for the gospel in a time in which creed and culture seem to be at grave risk."

Reviews - What do customers think about Creed & Culture: A Touchstone Reader?

The Renewal of our Minds  Sep 27, 2004
I have no original thoughts to share that are not already addressed in the above reviews concerning the text itself. As they say, it is an excellent resource for spiritual and intellectual nourishment in an arid climate of flabby philosophy and sold out (bankrupt) and accommodating theology. I only want to reiterate what this book sets out to accomplish, namely that Christians are in the midst of an important opportunity to redeem the time, to remind the culture at large through our intellectual and lived witness that ideas matter, and that the driving principles of our time are not going to satisfy their deepest thirsts. Materialism, scientific and otherwise, and its children are at the root of this culture of decay and despair and the Gospel is as relevant now as it was when Christ was resurrected. May this culture pass and usher in the age to come through the renewing of our minds.

And don't forget to subscribe to First Things and Touchstone! Enjoy!
Sharply relevant to the twenty-first century  Apr 7, 2003
Compiled and edited by James M. Kushiner (Executive Editor of "Touchstone: A Journal of Mere Christianity" and Executive Director of the Fellowship of St. James), Creed & Culture: A Touchstone Reader is an impressive collection of twenty-one essays contributed by a diverse variety of learned authors. Each individually written work originally appeared in "Touchstone" magazine, a forum for ecumenical discussion of matters pertaining to Protestant, Catholic, and Orthodox Christians. From religion, atheism, and public schools, to the ecclesiastical vision of John Chrysostom, to the difficulties encountered with Latitudinarian Conservatives, and more, Creed & Culture offers non-specialist general readers with an insightful and perspicacious work which is sharply relevant to the twenty-first century. Creed & Culture is an especially recommended addition to personal Christian Studies reading lists and Religious Studies reference collections.
