Notice of Retraction:
We have recently learned that portions of two articles by Thomas M. Rosica, C. S. B., “Child of Light, Prince of Peace,” The Bible Today 29 (1991): 371–375 and “Two Journeys of Faith,” The Bible Today 31 (1993): 177–180, were plagiarized from a variety of sources. We are in the process of retracting both articles.
