The eighth volume of The Campbellsville Review, the scholarly journal of Campbellsville University’s faculty, staff, and friends, was published in Nov. 2016. This issue includes articles, lectures, and reviews of film and books from 2015-2016. Lectures by visiting speakers on Baptist Heritage and Christians for Biblical Equality begin the volume. Articles revisiting the concept of Baptist affiliated universities and exploring the literary art of two post-World War II women by Dwayne Howell and Justy Engle, respectively, are in this issue as are essays by Wesley Roberts about the university’s unique keyboard collection and by Edwin Pavy, Jr., who explores how cultural bias influences the selection of choral repertoires in Kentucky public schools. Robert Doty remembers his 1995 mission trip to Cuba, and in their addresses, E. Bruce Heilman inspired the 2015 graduating class, John Chowning delivered an inspirational devotion about CU’s future, and Shawn Williams commented on Christians’ civic responsibilities. A listing of published works by faculty in the previous two years is also included. Free copies are available at the Montgomery Library on the campus.
