Huntington, Ind.—Two Huntington College students will present essays at the Mideast Conference on Christianity on October 19-20 in Dayton, Ohio. The theme of the essays will focus on science fiction and Christianity.
Tai Mauney, a senior English major from Anderson, Ind., will read her essay, “God in the Image of Man or Machine: The Problem of a Personal Deity in Sharon Shinn’s Samaria Trilogy.” Craig French, a senior English major from Holland, Ohio, will read his essay, “The Worthing Saga: Finding Meaning in Existence in Light of Orson Scott Card’s ‘No Problem of Pain.’”
