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!

"Surrounding myself with those that Jesus would"

I have felt the call for years. It's been the most silently real yet consistent and palpable sensations of my soul. When I first experienced Jesus as an adult, I understood him differently than I do today. I heard him call me to be active in the church to bring more into the physical structures and religious strictures of Christendom. I worked in a Christian bookstore, I went to charismatic revivals, and I proselytized by going out into the world (and sometimes invited that world into my home to critique, to challenge, and to condemn).
