The latest edition of the Scrawl is now online. Here’s a couple of articles you’ll want to read:
- “Q & A about Academic Writing“
—Dr. Douglas Sweeney answers questions about his November 1 presentation on becoming a published author, as well as his thoughts on good academic writing in general.
“Sadly, another feature of much academic writing is that it’s not written very well. So what I want for people who are in a school like this and are thinking of getting published, is to emphasis not only the importance of doing your homework and having this thing well-researched, but the importance of spending a lot of time thinking about and praying about how to communicate what you’re saying to the real people who are going to be reading it.”
- “The Power of Sacrificial Care in the Hunger Games“
—Rebecca Miller identifies the major themes found in the Hunger Games trilogy and their connections to a biblical worldview.
“In The Hunger Games, hope is based on our human ability to care. In the end, this is a fragile foundation, as Katniss realizes that humans will continue to be uncaring and cruel. There is a lack of ultimate hope, which is realistic given a world without God.”
