Revival in the church can only begin and continue when the people of God experience a renewal within their hearts and a transfomation of their minds. This can never happen unless the Word of God comes alive in us and the practicing of it becomes first nature through us. In and of itself Revival is but a beginning and 'new life' through Christ a starting point to greater things in His Name. As we begin to experience more of the 'beginning of sorrows' God waits to use a people unafraid and unashamed to walk in His Word. It will never be easier than it is today, for the Word itself tells us that the days will grow more difficult. His precious grace will never be more available than in these last days, for He has spoken it in His Word.

Using methods he developed through grant-funded research, award-winning instructor Chris Juzwiak has documented a 15% increase in basic writers' success rates on his campus. These methods serve as the foundation for Touchstones, a paragraph-to-essay level book that begins with a focus on academic paragraphs and essays, then moves to higher-level skills such as using precise language and working with sources. Like Stepping Stones, Juzwiak's book for the sentence-to-paragraph level, Touchstones includes scaffolded exercises and instruction, color-coded parts of speech, and creative activities that keep students engaged. By moving progressively from simple to more complex skills in each part of the book - and in each chapter - Touchstones ensures that all students feel confident in what they're learning and empowered to continue.
