This is our pain issue. Sort of. We move from the man born blind to a "pain train" to "dead" frogs to drug haze. Each article is followed by grace, however. From sight to insight to revival to salvation.
Such is the nature of wonder. It results from looking at life at its worst and life at its best. For God by his grace manages to use the former to bless with the latter.
It represents the core of The Behemoth: as you may recall from the initial essay of our first issue, it was in the midst of Job's great suffering that God showed him the great and glorious beast.
That God would use this paradoxical means to instill us with awe—well, that is a wonder as well.
