You’re pretty well informed about what First Things writers are thinking. Those who subscribe to the print magazine hear from us ten times per year. Those who read us on the web can read a new article every weekday.

We write about contemporary matters, as well as matters of eternal significance. I hope you find what we publish useful, even inspiring.

This month, First Things has issued a readers’ survey so that we can learn what you are thinking. So tell us about yourself, and tell us your views about what we’re doing (or not doing) at First Things by filling out the survey.

The survey asks substantive questions that will take a little time, but not too much. I hope you will take the survey. We seek to nourish our readership with thoughtful and incisive material. Help us better understand our readership so that we can fulfill this mission more effectively.

Thanks for taking the time. And thanks for being part of the First Things community.

Dear Reader,

We launched the First Things 2023 Year-End Campaign to keep articles like the one you just read free of charge to everyone.

Measured in dollars and cents, this doesn't make sense. But consider who is able to read First Things: pastors and priests, college students and professors, young professionals and families. Last year, we had more than three million unique readers on

Informing and inspiring these people is why First Things doesn't only think in terms of dollars and cents. And it's why we urgently need your year-end support.

Will you give today?
