Huntington, Ind.—An essay by Dr. John Sanders, “The Assurance of Things to Come,” has been published in Looking to the Future: Evangelical Studies in Eschatology, edited by David Baker (Baker Book House, 2001). The new publication is the latest professional achievement in what has been a busy semester for Sanders, who serves as professor of religion and philosophy at Huntington College.

Sanders has become a much sought-after speaker in academic and theological circles. On October 26, Sanders participated in a two-hour radio program hosted by Lew Davies of KPDQ in Portland, Oregon, in which he discussed divine providence with Dr. Gary Breshears of Western Seminary. Sanders debated similar issues with Dr. Chris Hall of Eastern College in a November chapel/convocation series at Huntington College. On November 19, he presented a keynote address at the Evangelical Theological Society annual meeting in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

Sanders joined the Huntington College faculty in 1998. He previously served as an Extraordinary Fellow at the University of Notre Dame Center for Philosophy of Religion. He earned his Th.D in systematic and philosophical theology from the University of South Africa. Prior to coming to Huntington College he served as head of the religious studies program at Oak Hills Christian college in Minnesota. Dr. Sanders has produced three award-winning books, including The Openness of God (co-authored with Professor Emeritus William Hasker, among others), No Other Name (Eerdmans 1992) and What About Those Who Have Never Heard? (InterVarsity 1995). His latest book is The God Who Risks: A Theology of Providence, published by InterVarsity Press in 1998.

Founded in 1897, Huntington is a comprehensive Christian college of the liberal arts, offering graduate and undergraduate degrees in more than 50 academic concentrations. US News and World Report ranks Huntington College among the best in the Midwest. Huntington has also been listed among The 201 Best Colleges for the Real World and The Templeton Guide: Colleges and Universities that Encourage Character Development.
