Feasting on the Word e-books now available

We’re happy to announce that we can now provide the whole Feasting on the Word series of lectionary study helps published by Westminster John Knox … remotely as e-books for our authorized users (current students, faculty and staff).  You will find bib records for each volume in our Library catalog.

In addition to the original Feasting on the Word : Preaching the Revised Common Lectionary series for Years A, B and C, we also have the Gospels series, the Children’s Sermons, the Worship Companions (liturgical resources), and the Thematic series for Lent and Advent.

To see the full e-book options, go to our Library homepage.  In the search box, enter a few words from the title, such as FEASTING WORD.  When you receive your search results, at the top of the filtering column on the left you can limit to ELECTRONIC RESOURCE.  There is a link to the electronic location of each book in its bib record.  If prompted, use your usual Library login (barcode number and PIN).

The e-book format is the capable and easy-to-use ProQuest Ebook Central interface.  You can read the book online, use the Table of Contents to go to a specific place in the book, download chapters, search within the book by keyword, print portions, save sections to your Bookshelf, etc.  Also, any Library user can make use of these features while working inside the Library (either Richmond or Charlotte), while authorized users can also do this remotely.

We hope you will enjoy using this new resource!
