I AM A PENTECOSTAL (though I don’t really think the term is scriptural) Christian who has just recently discovered your magazine. I just want to thank you for being one of the very few places where a Christian can find articles about the likes of Flannery O’Connor and Wallace Stevens. I like the Christianity of Solzhenitsyn and Stringfellow, Wendell Berry and J.S. Bach, Edward Taylor and Smith Wigglesworth.
I do think, as Solzhenitsyn, that the answer does not lie in the Right or the Left, but upward, and I’m thankful that your magazine is a place where even the farthest reaches of Christian thought are welcome (even though many of my brothers and sisters in the pentecostal faith seem to have stopped thinking). I have hope that the charismatic-pentecostal believers will have something to contribute to the thinking Christian community soon. Anyway, I just want to compliment you on your fine magazine.
