1st Quarter 2021 Book Additions (2) – PRC Seminary Library

In this post we finish the list of significant book acquisitions to the PRC Seminary library for the first quarter of this year year – January to March 2021. In the previous post we gave you the first sections of the list; in this one we give you the last three sections, which includes dogmatics and practical theology.

Keep in mind that these lists are not exhaustive but representative of what has been added to the library in the last few months. And, remember, that I post these lists believing that there are books here not just for seminary faculty and students, but also for the layman in the church – even for young people. And I hope you get some ideas for your own library – personal, family, and church. Browse and then take up and read – feed your mind and your soul!
