Not a single female voice. So sad.

Tony,
That's a good observation. I'll have to ask Alissa Wilkinson, the associate editor for Comment why she did not include any female voices in this anthology.

It's not that Comment Magazine doesn't publish a lot of female writers. Just a quick review of the alphabetical list of contributors in their archives reveals that in recent issues, they've featured Nicole Baker Fulgham of Teach For America, Deborah Bowen of Redeemer University College, Anna Broadway who wrote the book Sexless in the City, Ellie Clitheroe who is President of Prison Fellowship Canada, Christina Crook who is editor of the Arts & Cultural Guide to British Columbia, Janel Curry of Calvin College, Janet Epp Buckingham of Trinity Western University and the Laurentian Leadership Centre, Luann Purcell Jennings of Redeemer Presbyterian Church, Katherine Leary who is the director of the Redeemer's Center for Faith and Work, Kelly Monroe Kullberg of The Veritas Forum, Nancy Pearcey of Philadelphia Biblical University, Abbie Smith who wrote Can You Keep Your Faith in College?, Rebecca Tirrell Talbot of Concordia University Chicago and North Park University, Kirstin Vander Giessen-Reitsma of *culture is not optional, and Bethany Warren of Beaver Falls Coffee & Tea Company, along with many artistic contributions from women.
