The Thistle

Library Acquisitions for December 2012 & January 2013

December and January were relatively light in terms of acquisitions due to Christmas break, so we present both months’ acquisitions here in one post. Highlights from December include the Crossway ESV Bible Atlas by John Currid, several titles on religion and theology in India, and Zack Eswine’s Sensing Jesus. January’s acquisitions included the much anticipated 28th edition of the Nestle-Aland Novum Testamentum Graece, the third volume of François Bovon’s commentary on Luke in the Hermeneia series, and The ESV Global Study Bible.
