2017 HBU Author Celebration

The end of the spring semester always brings celebrations – some traditional and some new. This year, Houston Baptist University hosted an official celebration to honor faculty members who have recently published books. HBU faculty authors have published more than 30 books in the last 18 months. On April 26 in the M.D. Anderson Center, faculty authors sold and signed their books for students, colleagues, and visitors. From the School of Christian Thought to the College of Education and Behavioral Sciences to the School of Humanities, nearly every college and school was represented.

This year’s faculty authors were Lee Strobel, Mark Mittelberg, Garry Poole, Dr. Robert B. Sloan, Dr. Katie Alaniz, Dr. Ben Blackwell, Dr. Matt Boyleston, Dr. Timothy Brookins, Dr. Jennifer Butcher, Dr. Craig Evans, Dr. Joshua Farris, Dr. Jeremiah Johnston, Dr. Steven Jones, Dr. Jason Maston, Nancy Pearcey, Dr. Diana Severance, Mary Jo Sharp, Joshua Sikora, Dr. Philip Tallon, Dr. Jerry Walls, Dr. Michael Ward, and Dr. Dawn Wilson.

The event brought many visitors to campus and highlighted the achievements of HBU’s exceptional faculty. We hope to make this celebration an annual event. Congratulations to our faculty members on a great year of teaching and writing!
