Periodicals; Mormons; Religious thought; Philosophy and religion
Independent national quarterly established to express Mormon culture and examine the relevance of religion to secular life. It is edited by Mormons who wish to bring their faith into dialogue with human experience as a whole and to foster artistic and scholarly achievement based on their cultural heritage. The journal encourages a variety of viewpoints; although every effort is made to insure accurate scholarship and responsible judgment, the views expressed are those of the individual authors and are not necessarily those of the Mormon Church or of the editors.

Dr. Jensen had taken out his appendix, tonsils, treated him for all of his childhood diseases, and set his broken wrist. He had come to the clinic the last time four years ago to get his free missionary physical. Dr. Jensen's name had been a household word as long as he could remember, a man his parents respected, loved, and trusted. His only son had been drowned on a family water-skiing trip at Bear Lake. Steve knew that the feeling wouldn't come. He had the memories, the words, images in his mind, but he could not invoke the emotion. His body felt heavy and dull, like soft metal. The things he had done in Vietnam had destroyed his capacity 148 DOUGLAS H.THAYER The Clinic
