CSJR Research Guide

The Library has added an online research guide to support the mission of the Center for Social Justice and Reconciliation with a collection of digital and physical resources pertaining to the CSJR’s areas of focus including: urban ministry, social justice ministry, contemporary issues, black church studies, LGBTQ ministry/justice issues, and evangelism from a social justice perspective. Each area of study has been given a separate page in the guide and you may use a navigation menu on the left to explore resources associated with these emphases.

Although the CSJR Research Guide provides links to CSJR-related eBooks and eJournals, it is not a comprehensive list and other useful digital and physical resources are discoverable through a library catalog or database search.

The Center for Social Justice and Reconciliation is located on the Seminary’s Charlotte campus and is directed by Associate Professor of Bible Rodney S. Sadler Jr. Grounded in a ministry that is mandated in scripture, its two main goals are to remind people in Seminary of the significance of social justice work as part of ministry and to help bring the activist community into the Seminary community.
