PRC Seminary Library Acquisitions – 2nd Quarter 2020

20200421_092410

At the end of June, I completed the second quarter list of significant book acquisitions to the PRC Seminary library for this year (April – June). I make it a habit to share this list with the TSC (Theological School Committee) as well as with the faculty and students so that they can be informed of what is being added to the library.

But I am also convinced these lists are of value to you readers, which is why I post this one here. As noted before, part of my reason for posting them is not only to show you the kinds of books the seminary adds to its library, but also to stimulate you to find something to read. Yes, there are books here for the “common” church member, as well as for pastors and other officebearers. Some books are deeper in content than others, but there truly is something for most everyone in these lists. And, with Bible study season starting again soon, perhaps those opening sections of commentaries will be of use.

So, with that in mind, we give you this second quarter list – the first few sections of it, at least – with the rest to follow in a post later this week. Keep in mind these are not all the titles purchased, just the more significant ones. Happy browsing! Be on the alert for that book (or those books) that you may wish to read yourself!
