Dr. Boli is running a caption contest .

Here at First Thoughts , we have the results of a (different) Christmas poll, a few thoughts on the devil, a look at the rise of religious populism , and a look at the shape of evil .

And On the Square today, Elizabeth Scalia has a story about a shepherd , while John Murdock remembers A Charlie Brown Christmas .

Dear Reader,

Your charitable support for First Things is urgently needed before July 1.

First Things is a proudly reader-supported enterprise. The gifts of readers like you— often of $50, $100, or $250—make articles like the one you just read possible.

This Spring Campaign—one of our two annual reader giving drives—comes at a pivotal season for America and the church. With your support, many more people will turn to First Things for thoughtful religious perspectives on pressing issues of politics, culture, and public life.

All thanks to you. Will you answer the call?
