Celebrate Theological Libraries Month

Oct 1, 2018

October is Theological Libraries Month and once again we're joining the American Theological Library Association's celebration with book spine poetry and a faculty book raffle!

Create your own book spine poems using books from the library, share them on Twitter or Facebook,* and include @YourATLA with #TLM2018 for a chance to win the American Theological Library Association contest. Four winners will receive a $25 digital Amazon gift card.

Dykstra; Faith of Our Mothers, Living Still by Abigail Rian Evans and Katharine Doob Sakenfeld; and Bible and Ethics in the Christian Life: A New Conversation by Jacqueline E. Lapsley, et al.
