Several students were recognized for their scholarship at the Stone-Campbell Journal Conference in September.

For the second consecutive year, Joel Childers, a graduate student at Abilene (Texas) Christian University, received the Isaac Errett Award. His winning paper this year was titled, “Responses to the Attack on Pearl Harbor in Journals from the Methodist Church and Churches of Christ.” Childers received a $250 prize provided by the Disciples of Christ Historical Society.

Students from Emmanuel Christian Seminary at Milligan (in Tennessee) and Johnson University Florida were winners of the 2020 Student Paper Competitions.

Samuel Guy of ECS won the graduate division with his paper, “What Is Adam that You Are Mindful: A Comparison of Adam in Genesis 1 and 2.” Michael Wood of JUF won the undergraduate division with his paper, “The King’s Invitation: A Study of Matthew 22:1-14.” Guy and Wood received free one-year memberships in the Stone-Campbell Scholars Community and other assorted prizes.

Additionally, 16 students from a dozen Christian colleges were recognized as promising scholars. (See the entire list here.)
