Nebraska Christian College is very pleased to announce the release of Doxa volume 4! Doxa 4 was published in the fall of 2013. It features fiction, non-fiction, poetry, and artwork by Christian undergraduate students across America. From the introduction:
This issue, as its cover illustrates, encourages us to look up, to see beyond the temporary chaos and cruelty that come when people resolve not to serve God and His glory, bent on their own glory, or that of some finite being or entity. People can pollute pristine rivers and meadows, enslave nations, burn books, smash stained glass windows, abuse and destroy other people, even abuse and destroy themselves. Such aberrations will prove to be mere temporary diseases of the ultimate glory and peace that God has created. Made in His image, we can rejoice in Him, embrace His reign, and nurture His love and healing in our communities; we can repudiate mediocrity and selfishness and plunge into His presence, His purpose, and the certain perfection He will bring “in the fullness of time.” These artists, by word and image encourage us to “look up” and embrace that glory!
Paperback copies of Doxa 4 are available for $7, or in bundles of 10 for $6 each. Please contact Dr. Bob Milliken at firstname.lastname@example.org or 402-935-9400.

Doxa 3 was published in 2012. It features fiction, non-fiction, poetry, and artwork by undergraduate students. From the introduction:
This issue, as its cover illustrates, contrasts our delicate and fragile glory, the weak splendor of human artists, with the eternal, sustaining, and matchless glory of our Redeemer. As flowers thrill us with their beauty, they warn us by their brevity.
Paperback copies of Doxa are available for $10. Please contact Dr. Bob Milliken at email@example.com or 402-935-9400.

Marvin Oran Mansfield had crossed a line.
This time it seemed as though there was no turning back. He ran back upstairs and into his bedroom while tears of regret began to stream down his face. His adrenaline had his heart pumping at an unbelievable rate and his hands were beginning to shake.
You see, Marvin’s love for symmetry had become such an obsession that he felt an overwhelming desire to purposely go against it, just to see what would happen. The problem was, he wasn’t sure about the best way to do it. He had various ideas such as wearing two different shoes or even cutting one side of his hair to look different than the other side. Nothing seemed effective enough. He thought and thought and as ideas came and went he wondered if he was actually just beginning to lose his nerve.

X-mas in Xigatse
For three months I had prepared for Christmas. We spent hours collecting an assortment of Christmas cards, some with serene scenes of the Nativity, and some with little boys, full of the Christmas spirit, playing jovially on a snow-blanketed mountainside. Continue reading ‘Essays by Caitlin Greer’
