Master Books® Provides $3000 for One Lucky Student
Master Books®, a division of New Leaf Publishing Group, announces the winner of the 2014 $3000 college scholarship. Junior and senior high school students submitted essays regarding this topic: Evaluate Elijah’s Struggle as it pertains to God’s purpose in his life. Elaborate on the internal conflicts he faced as he made the decision to move from a place of fear into the complete purpose God designed for him. Are you seeking God’s plan for your life? In what ways are you actively searching out the destiny He has in store for you? Students were supplied with a free chapter of the book, Questions God Asks by Israel Wayne. Taking on a topic we don’t often stop to consider, “Why would God possibly want to ask us questions?” Israel Wayne helps us to examine fundamental assumptions about God, human nature, relationships, origins, purpose and destiny.
Leigh Anne Cooey, a senior of Apopka, Florida, submitted the winning essay entitled, “What Are You Doing Here?” In her essay, Cooey draws connections between Elijah’s struggles and his willingness to give in to fear and spiritual fatigue. Examining God’s grace in granting Elijah an “opportunity to reconnect” with Him, she makes it clear that the decision to follow God’s lead is one we all have to face. To read the entire essay, visit Creation Conversation’s Free Resources page.
Tim Dudley, the president of New Leaf Publishing Group, initiated the annual Master Books® scholarship program in 2008. This investment is evidence of the company’s focus on teaching and defending the authority of the Bible to this generation so that it lives on in the next. In this time of unprecedented cultural neglect of the Word of God, families all over the world are learning to trust the inerrancy of the Bible as they discover creation science, apologetic, church leadership resources, and Christian education resources available from the New Leaf team.
While the 2014 Master Books scholarship contest has concluded, we will be opening submissions for the 2015 Master Books scholarship in January 2015. Check back here then to find out more details!
