Spring 2012


Our culture does not know how to deal with legacies. We either treat the dead with some combination of awe and fear, or we think of our forebears as unworthy of remembrance, to be cast behind our own pursuits and discoveries.

Christians, however, can take a different tack. Ours is a historical faith, containing gifts each generation must re-open—some to be treasured, some to be viewed and sent back.

In this issue of Comment, we reject both our tendencies to ignore and to idolize the past. Instead, we seek to draw the good out of legacies, as we acknowledge that all legacies east of Eden will always be, at best, mixed.

How will you respond to the gifts of these legacies in your own life and work?
