It was educational, if distressing, to read some college newspapers right after September 11, 2001.

"It's not about absolutes, but about perspective and power!" was the sorry supplication.
William Edgar is professor of apologetics at Westminster Theological Seminary (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) and is an accomplished musician.
