WoodcutWelcome to the portal to Bethany Special Collections Online!

This page serves as the direct link to the Bethany Special Collections Online, hosted by PALNI (the Private Academic Library Network of Indiana [see www.palni.edu]). Online you will find selected high-quality images of title pages and other pages of interest chosen from parts of Bethany's Special Collections, including numerous samples of beautifully hand-illustrated woodcuts, such as displayed here.

We celebrate the conservation project that enabled us to preserve many of the works making up our valuable collection, and which also made this initial Online offering available. We are grateful to the Arthur Vining Davis Foundation for their invaluable support in these efforts. In the future, we may include some of the project narrative, as well as some before-and-after photos of the conservation work done, as well as some detail about the online portion of the collection.

In the meantime, here is the direct link to the Bethany Special Collections Online Enjoy!

Brian Mackie
Master of Divinity '07

BrianSometimes it takes looking back to see God's leading in life. I graduated from Bethany in May 2007 and realized that God led my entire theological training. In the summer of 2002, however, it was a little tougher to see where it was going.

I realized my call to full-time ministry and knew it was to journey into the educational training part of my call. My campus pastor and I had several conversations about this next step. I fasted and prayed and sought the Lord but had no clear answer by the end of the fast. As I was preparing to break my fast, the Lord asked me, "What is the desire of your heart?" I replied, "Oral Roberts University."
