Charlotte Fall Reading in CRC

Posted on August 30, 2017

He can’t leave his hotel. You won’t want to.

From the New York Times bestselling author of Rules of Civility—a transporting novel about a man who is ordered to spend the rest of his life inside a luxury hotel.

In 1922, Count Alexander Rostov is deemed an unrepentant aristocrat by a Bolshevik tribunal, and is sentenced to house arrest in the Metropol, a grand hotel across the street from the Kremlin. Rostov, an indomitable man of erudition and wit, has never worked a day in his life, and must now live in an attic room while some of the most tumultuous decades in Russian history are unfolding outside the hotel’s doors. Unexpectedly, his reduced circumstances provide him entry into a much larger world of emotional discovery.

Resource Guides Updated

Posted on October 27, 2016

The “Resource Guides” on the new library website have been updated.

The most popular library guide is the “Internet Resources for Theology Students.” This guide includes good resources found on the web that can be helpful with academic and ministry work. The second most popular library guide is “Biblical and Theological Resources.” This guide helps students with Bible class and Ordination exegesis papers.  The two most popular tabs in this guide are the “Commentary Assistance” tab and the “Biblical Exegesis Resources” tabs.  The “Commentary Assistance” gives students help in understanding the different leanings of many of the commentaries found in the library.  The “Biblical Exegesis Resource” gives the students the current class rubric for putting together a biblical exegesis and suggests library resources that can be used for the different steps in that process.
