From Seattle to Pensacola, the Sterling College Forensics and Debate teams made their presence known as they competed nationwide during the 2007-2008 season. Following in the footsteps of the previous year’s successful season, the team faced the challenge of not only matching their previous success but maintaining excellence throughout the entire season.
Dr. Craig A. Smith, professor of Biblical studies and chair of the religion and philosophy department at Sterling College, has published his third book titled, At the Cross, At the Crossroads: Loving our Enemies in the 21st Century.
