Library honors courageous women of the Bible

by Ellen Cox, Business Manager & Special Projects Assistant

In observance of Women’s History Month, the Library has a new display: Courageous Women of the Bible. Six of the Bible’s most courageous women are displayed in the cabinets near the Gallery. Sarah, Deborah, Esther, Ruth, Mary, and Anna all answered the call of God on their lives. Through the ages they have inspired women and men to be brave and trust in the Lord. By their examples of faithfulness to God’s call, they remain a blessing to us today. The Lord continues to choose women of courage who will fulfill His purpose every day. Join us in celebrating God’s courageous women.

Library highlights publications by Psychology & Counseling faculty

by Ellen Cox, Business Manager & Special Projects Assistant

The Library is pleased to feature recent articles and books by faculty of the School of Psychology and Counseling. The works displayed are representative of the important scholarship published over the years by Psychology and Counseling faculty.

According to SPC Dean William Hathaway, “The scholarship activities in the SPC have received national and global attention in both counseling and psychology. While they have been rigorous enough for acceptance in first tier scholarly venues, they have also frequently had a direct real world impact. From helping ministers and counselors in Haiti more effectively deal with traumatized children to helping pastors better strengthen marriages, the SPC research is demonstrating internationally recognized Christian leadership that is changing the world.”

Among the featured publications is a copy of the Korean language edition of Family Therapies: A Comprehensive Christian Appraisal, by Dr. James Sells. Other notable books and articles include works by Dr. Glen Moriarty, Dr. Donald Walker, Linda Baum, Dr. Jennifer Ripley, Dr. Mark Newmeyer, Dr. Kathie Erwin, Dr. Mark Yarhouse, and Dean William Hathaway.

Stop by the University Library to review these outstanding works (the display is located on the first floor, near the gallery area), and be sure to congratulate these fine professors on their achievements.

Billy Graham tribute on Display in the Library

Written by Ellen Cox, Business Manager & Special Projects Assistant

Born on November 7, 1918, Billy Graham has spent his life serving the Lord all around the globe. Some have called him “Evangelist to the World.” He has also been a friend of CBN and Regent University for many years. The University Library has more than 200 books by and about Billy Graham. The current tribute in the Library features memorabilia from Rev. Graham’s journeys spreading the Gospel to all nations… “And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations” (Matthew 24:14). Special thanks to CBN for the loan of pictures from the grand opening of CBN Center in 1979 and for a picture of Billy Graham and Pat Robertson seated in front of the Brandenburg Gate following the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989.

Treasures from the Vault

Written by Ellen Cox

The Library is exhibiting a portion of its Biblical Studies Collection of rare early editions in the gallery area, located near the back windows on the first floor. This collection is comprised of over 100 Bibles, Bible dictionaries, lectures, sermons, expositions, and commentaries. Most of these items were purchased from evangelist Dick Mills. The display features key English texts from the early 18th century. Of special note are the following:

  • Edward Elton, The Complaint of a Sanctified Sinner Answered: or an explanation of the seventh chapter of the Epistle of Saint Paul to the Romans, delivered in divers Sermons. 2nd ed. London: G. Eld. 1622.
  • Gervase Babington, Certaine Plaine, briefs, and comfortable notes, upon every chapter of Genesis. London: I. R. 1596. This small volume is the oldest book in the collection and includes a note in the cover: “Gathered and layde downe for the good of them that are not able to use better helps, and yet careful to read the word, and right hartily desirous to taste the sweet of it.”
    • The display features a variety of bindings, covers, and early type settings. Furthermore, each of the texts has its own special appeal. One is valued for its beautiful marble-patterned endpapers. Another was written by a woman and published in 1827. The author’s name does not appear on the cover or the title page, but is hinted at by a reference to a previous work.
