Two William Jewell College professors—both Liberty, Mo., residents—recently authored and published books.
Dr. Blane Baker, Jewell’s Wallace A. Hilton Chair in Physics and professor of physics and mathematics, authored Scientific Descriptions and Analyses of Sport. In his book, Dr. Baker explores topics such as one-dimensional motion, the modeling of athletes and gene doping. Scientific Descriptions and Analyses of Sport was published by Linus Publications.
Dr. Milton Horne, professor of religion at Jewell, authored Whirlwind: Journeys With Job Through Grief, Anxiety, and Pain with Wes Eades. The spiritual self-help book voyages through the book of Job, addressing questions about life’s struggles while challenging readers to examine assumptions about what it means to live lives of faith amidst great suffering. The book was published in August and is available through Amazon. Dr. Horne serves as coordinator of faith and learning at the College.
