The Thistle

Library Acquisitions for September 2013

During the month of September we added the Pocket Dictionary of the Reformed Tradition, coauthored by alumnus Wesley Vander Lugt, to the Reference section. From Simonetta Carr’s Christian Biographies for Young Readers series, we added the volumes on John CalvinAnselm of Canterbury, and Lady Jane Grey.

Also take note of Jack Lundbom’s massive, 1,000-page Deuteronomy: A Commentary. Lastly, in the spirit of seeking to integrate systematic theology and counseling, as in our course God and Humanity: Foundations for Counseling, we’ll highlight Virginia Todd Holeman’s Theology for Better Counseling: Trinitarian Reflections for Healing and Formation.
