As an American living in Scotland, I am grateful for your news and editorials from a biblical perspective, but your statement that "Christ's teaching eventually led to the development of complementary roles for men and women" brought me up short. The roles for men and women were set up by God Himself in Genesis 2, before the Fall, and have always been complementary.

True

Marc Davis's column, "Waiting for the Son" (Dec. 11), was excellent. It shows us that our true identity isn't in this world but in Christ.

Desultory result

Upon first reading "The results of a dog going blind" (Nov. 20), we feared that we had missed the point-surely there was something more in this "Christian short story." A second reading proved even more confusing. We disagreed with all the judges' comments, except that it breaks out of the Christian "mold." If this is the pinnacle of Christian literature, we might as well stop now.
