Through the Editor's Eyes

"Without the Shedding of Blood There Is No Forgiveness"

Catherine Groves

The title of Catherine Groves' editorial is a quotation taken from the Epistle of Saint Paul to the Hebrews 9:22. Here Groves briefly comments on different concepts presented in this issue and asks, "What do Batman, Martin Luther King, Jr., and 'the voice' that addresses us [in N. Michel Landaiche's essay] hold in common?"

Is Righteousness Ever Right?

Judith Eir Landaiche

Judith Eir Landaiche offers a view of righteousness that involves a bit of human history, choices, follies — and Batman.

The War for Righteousness and Life

N. Michel Landaiche, III

This is an almost indescribable essay, prompted by a question from a friend: "What have you been struggling with spiritually?" After musing about this for weeks, suddenly arose "a voice" from within, a voice that articulated quite a different stance from the one Dr. N. Michel Landaiche, III, would identify as his own.

A Peek Between the Covers

Dan Hahn

The Righteous Mind: Why Good People Are Divided by Politics and Religion by Jonathan Haidt is the focus of the Reverend Daniel B. Hahn's review for this issue. While Hahn considers the book to be, for the most part, "a welcome adjunct to dialogue between Christians and New Agers," he critiques the author's presuppositions — and offers thoughtful insights of his own.

A Pensive Pause

Forgiveness: an Act or an Attitude?

Joanne Winetzki

People often refer to an "act of forgiveness." In this "Pensive Pause" Joanne Winetzki explores a different approach, succinctly expressed by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., who said, "Forgiveness is not an occasional act; it is a permanent attitude." Winetzki delves into how others have conceptualized and practiced an expanded attitude of forgiveness.

The Letters Library

C*NAQ readers speak out

Our readers, including the Reverend Brian E. Sterley, Rodney Leighton and Wendell E. Wilkinson, address a variety of subjects ranging from the usefulness of footnotes to the importance of inner balance. And the discussion continues: was it Buddhist texts or Christian scripture that influenced the other (or each other)? Or did the striking parallels between the two traditions develop independently? In addition, Catherine Groves responds to the Reverend David Brock concerning media-driven — and perhaps fraudulent — claims of discovered ossuaries and fragments of scripture.
