The Collection

The Austen K. deBlois Library is home to over 100,000 books and nearly 300 journal titles. The Library's collection includes books, periodicals, and audio-visual materials, as well as computer and internet based resources. The strength of our collection lies in the basic areas of traditional theological education: Old Testament, New Testament, theology, and church history. Special emphasis is placed on the areas of Baptist history and doctrines, missiology, ecumenics, marriage and family, church renewal, and urban ministry. The collection is also gaining strength in the areas of ethics, homiletics, and worship.
