. What they are supposed to represent is anyone’s guess: the Holy Trinity; the three sins of avarice, gluttony, and lust; the divine agents of destruction that occasionally appear in the Old Testamentthe scholarship is indecisive, to put it mildly. In any case, these leopards have devoured our poet’s innardsheart and liver and brainleaving only a skeleton, broken and blanched. Then, in this valley of dry bones, comes a question: “Shall these bones live?”

Thu, 28 Jun 2012 00:01:00 -0400 Dear Readers,
First Things is a non-profit. For more than twenty years readers have provided donations that have sustained the journal. Now the electronic age presents new challenges. Ive written to our subscribers, who have responded with generosity. Now Im writing to you directly on the web. We need our web readers to step up and provide support as well.
Dont let a secular mentality dominate our culture. More than twenty years ago Richard John Neuhaus and his colleagues founded First Things to project a confident, informed, engaged, and religious voice into the Public Square. It was necessary then, and it remains so today. Donate now and help us become even stronger. Your support keeps First Things a vital voice in public debate.
First Things depends on all her supporters, large and small. Over the years countless readers have given, some $50, some $500, and some $1,000 and more. These gifts have made the difference. Yours will as well.
