HUNTINGTON, Ind. At 7 p.m. Oct. 9, Huntington University will host a political panel, discussing varying evangelical views of politics and the upcoming election.

Facilitated by Mark Mellinger of WANE-TV in Fort Wayne, authors Lisa Sharon Harper and Dr. David Innes will discuss their recent book, "Left, Right, and Christ: Evangelical Faith in Politics," as it relates to the upcoming election. The panel will take questions from the audience.

Harper and Innes are "two evangelical Christian thinkers from opposite ends of the political spectrum," one writer explains. Their book brings them together to discuss their polarizing views on various political issues from abortion to same-sex marriage. Harper, director of mobilizing at the Christian justice organization Sojourners, represents the left, and Innes, associate professor of politics at The King's College, represents the right.

The discussion is free and open to the public. It will be held in the Zurcher Auditorium of the Merillat Centre for the Arts at HU.
