Giants in the Land: Metaphors for Native Evangelicalism

In this issue we explore the metaphor of the giant from the standpoint of being giant – walking into the fulfillment of that “vision” of Dr. Graham. But we also pursue it from the standpoint of having needed to conquer giants so as to be able to continue to thrive within the land of our forebears, and to find our way in the midst of those who would continue to oppress and suppress a Native North American experience of faith. On the one hand we are invited to be superhuman, on the other, the diminutive David. Which of these is correct, if either? Or, is there another, more powerful, metaphor we should seek to embrace as our own?
