wRITER & aPOLOGIST
Jasmin Biggs is a writer, editor, and apologist who graduated in 2022 with her Master of Arts in Cultural Apologetics from Houston Christian University. She is Editor in Chief at An Unexpected Journal, an academic journal that “seeks to demonstrate the truth of Christianity through both reason and the imagination to engage the culture from a Christian worldview.” Her published writing may currently be found at An Unexpected Journal and on her personal Substack, A Pilgrim’s Campfire.
Her academic interests include philosophical and imaginative apologetics, the intersection of intellectual history and culture, C.S. Lewis, Richard Niebuhr’s work on Christian cultural engagement, friendship as a spiritual discipline, doubt and de/reconstruction, intellectual hospitality, and the theological and philosophical underpinnings of modern American evangelicalism. She wrote her thesis on the art of friendship, particularly friendship across ideological lines, examining in detail how C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien offer us a model for cross-ideological friendship in particular and for cultural engagement in general.
Inspired by Colossians 2:2-3, Jasmin is passionate about cultivating an incarnational approach to life. As the key to every mystery, Christ makes all things sacred. She loves discovering how the voices of every discipline, field, and craft mingle in rich harmony, proclaiming with one voice the beauty, goodness, and truth of God and His world. She is fascinated by how the grandeur of God is revealed in everything from ancient myths to modern popular culture, from medievalism to multiculturalism, from vintage Dior to Italian espresso.
Jasmin and her husband enjoy raising their young daughter in Oklahoma City. In her spare time, she enjoys frequenting local independent bookstores, building community through hospitality, gardening, hiking, and practicing the Italian principle of bella figura – making every facet of life as beautiful and incarnational as can be.
