Cover Story

“How can Christians demonstrate against injustice,” Sharon asked, “but in a way that Christ would have it done?”
Washington's inept response to wars and rumors of wars.
The plagues and bombs mock the peace.
Confronting the nuclear powers.
A short manual for resurrection people.


Jacques Ellul puts the matter of prayer in the proper perspective for me.
