First Things is a journal of ideas that examines the most interesting -- and often controversial -- issues arising at the crossroads of religion and public life today. It begins with the premise that to understand American society -- and where it is headed it is necessary to understand its religious life and values.

If you have never picked up a copy of "First Things" you need to do so today. There is simply nothing else even remotely like it. No amount of praise could be too lavish for this magazine.

"First Things" an interfaith religious magazine. Yes, I said religious, a word hovering on the brink of the suspect list lately. The magazine does lean to Catholic and Protestant issues, although I have read articles by Jewish writers as well.

In this month's issue (May 08) there are articles on whether or not Shakespeare was Catholic, the ethics of immigration, a very interesting article on marriage, and a warm and personal reflection on William F Buckley. Also a comparison between hard-core atheists like Nietzsche, Freud, and Marx, and the new, soft-core atheists like Dawkins and Hitchens, who call God evil, even though "in order to make such value judgements one must assume, as the hard-core atheists are honest enough to acknowledge, that there exists somewhere, in...

First Things is a thoughtful magazine with articles that will still be worth reading ten years from now. Like Atlantic Monthly, Touchstone, New Yorker, or Foreign Policy, First Things is filled with ideas that are analytical and thoughtful. Unlike all of those aforementioned publications, the viewpoints found in First Things are decidedly Catholic, and the focus of the magazine is on social or religious issues.

I have been a subscriber to First Things for fifteen years now, and an admirer of Richard John Neuhaus, the editor (died in 2009), an intellectual tour-de-force. Since the death of Neuhaus, the publication has taken on a distinctively different look; for example, the front cover, which used to feature the contents as a teaser to what might be found within the magazine, now displays a black and white line drawing, symbolic of some topic covered inside. The new editor of the magazine, Joseph Bottum, has improved the magazine by making it more visually... Read more
