Clifton Holt Jolley
"Selling the Chevrolet: A Moral Exercise"
The judges stated, "Jolley's well-written, lighthearted, yet serious
sequel to Eugene England's earlier article "Blessing the Chevrolet"
demonstrates the power of humorous writing in reinforcing and
promoting the Mormon world view. Positing a purposeful, God-centered
universe, Jolley, whose delightful column in the Deseret News has
gathered a large and appreciative audience, plays in this article on
the incongruity between skepticism and faith--and refreshingly allows
skepticism to take it on the chin from an unassuming but confident
(and surprised) faith."
