A few weeks ago Marvin Olasky wrote that “many evangelicals of college age and slightly beyond…frequently cannot think of a single conservative evangelical whom they admire.” Consequently, a new World magazine contest has been announced for:
Nominating a person. Your mission, should you choose to accept it: By July 31 send June McGraw a name and one-paragraph description of an articulate conservative evangelical under the age of 40 who already has a record of accomplishment and seems likely to accomplish more.
We’re looking for people with attractive personalities who are committed to political decentralization, free markets, and Bible-based cultural norms. We’ll research your nominees and interview some. The particular field is less important than the person. Since the proclamation of propositional truths does not engage some younger evangelicals, our goal is to offer narratives of exciting lives, profiling in words and film the most impressive. Please help us find them.
Who to nominate?
