The psalmist confesses that “in your light we see light” (Ps. 36:9 NRSV). As faculty of Northwestern College, we too confess that God, who is light, makes possible and sustains our seeking knowledge and understanding. The Northwestern Review is not a peer-reviewed journal, but rather an academic online commons for the varied research of the college’s faculty—completed or in-progress, individually or in teams, within a single discipline or spanning more than one discipline. Within each issue of the Review, we bring into the light a bit of what we have sought to see along the way of our scholarly vocations, even if “only in part” (1 Cor. 13:12b).
