New Faculty Book: Notes of a Native Daughter

Jun 21, 2021

Notes of a native daughter : testifying in theological education by Prof. Keri Day is available in the library collection.

Call Number: BV4080 .D39 2021
ISBN: 9780802878823
Publication Date: 2021-06-17

"In Notes of a Native Daughter, Keri Day testifies to structural inequalities and broken promises of inclusion through the eyes of a black woman who experiences herself as both stranger and friend to prevailing models of theological education. Inviting the reader into her religious world--a world that is African American and, more specifically, Afro-Pentecostal--she not only uncovers the colonial impulses of theological education in the United States but also proposes that the lived religious practices and commitments of progressive Afro-Pentecostal communities can help the theological academy decolonize and reenvision multiple futures. "

Library Curbside Service Expands

Mar 26, 2021

End-of-semester expansion for PTS faculty, students, and staff (April)

To support end-of semester research needs, the Library is pleased to offer an expanded curbside pickup schedule, with the addition of Monday pick-up at CRW for the month of April.

All days and locations of curbside service are open to students, faculty and staff. Members of the PTS community may request up to 20 books per week through curbside service.


All book requests (including title, author, and call number) that are emailed to by 12 pm on the appropriate day (see schedule below) will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis for that week. Please specify your preferred pick up day to avoid confusion, and also sign your e-mail with your name and program.

The Library aims to meet requests in as timely a manner as possible. If book request demand is higher than staff capacity, requests will flow to the top of the line for the next service date. Those requesting library materials will receive a notice from the Circulation Department regarding what books have been checked out to you.


Books must be picked up within the hours listed and by the person whose library account is charged. PTS IDs will be required as proof of identity. Please come prepared to pick up your library materials wearing face masks and following all social distancing and other PTS health and wellness procedures. Any requests not picked up during the planned pickup time will be held for one week unless requested by another person.


Library material may be returned to the building book drop at the front of the Library, or during the Wednesday pickup time at CRW. The CRW location is the Charlotte Newcombe (CN) Center located at 400 Emmons Drive.
