The Other Journal is a space for Christian interdisciplinary theological reflection that tackles the cultural crises of our time with verve and peculiar slant, advancing a progressive, provocative, and charitable response in sync with the peacefully contrarian Christ.
In this issue, we address the theme of health by reading of a spouse who is emptied into the relentless repetition of caring for a dying husband. We meet parents who wrestle with what it means to birth children and watch them grow. And we learn that physical, mental, and spiritual health requires lending a hand to our fellow travelers just as Jesus extended his hands to us.
Our health issue features prose by Lucy Bryan, Jason Byassee, Michael Dean Clark, Dave de la Fuente, Lauren Frances Evans, Elizabeth Felicetti, Jonathan Hiskes, Rachel Pieh Jones, Jennifer Lamson-Scribner, Daniel Rempel, Kate Roberts, Jonathan Tran, Mark C. Watney, and Rita Willett; poetry by Susan Carlson, Judith H. Montgomery, and Angela Alaimo O'Donnell; linocut prints by Kate Roberts; and mixed media by Lauren Frances Evans.
