First Things was founded in 1990 to combat secular ideology and fight for the place of religious conviction in shaping public policy. For a quarter century, the academic journal has supported a religiously pluralistic society that defends human life, democratic government, a free economy, and religious freedom. These volumes explore the complicated relationship between religion and society, promoting a religiously-informed analysis of culture, society, and civil liberties.
The value of First Things is dramatically increased with Verbum. They become exquisitely searchable, in entirety or in use-defined collections (e.g. decade by decade). Scripture citations appear on mouseover in your preferred English translation. Important terms link to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and a wealth of other resources in your digital library. Powerful topical searches help you find exactly what you’re looking for. Tablet and mobile apps let you take the discussion with you. With Logos Bible Software, the most efficient and comprehensive research tools are in one place, so you get the most out of your study.
This new version of First Things is fully integrated with the Verbum 6 Journal Feature and includes specialized tagging by author, passage, and topic.
Everyone talks about the proper role of religion in public affairs, but First Things is the only place in which a serious and illuminating exploration of that question can consistently be pursued.

First Things is the premier journal of Christian thought in America today—provocative, stimulating, and elegantly written.
