Editors’ Note

Things are rarely what they seem. That could be the theme of many a Behemoth issue. Certainly of this one.

We begin with J. Todd Billings on a deadly poison that saved his life—and how this is not unlike redemption in Christ.

Next, Kenneth Tanner argues for a more comforting condolence than Hallmark can offer.

Ann Gauger then helps us see what we cannot: the amazing life transpiring in a cell.

Finally, Puritan Anne Bradstreet waxes eloquent about how missing her husband, away on a business trip, is an occasion to celebrate their love.

There are all sorts of shades in this thing called wonder, no?

—Mark Galli
