On Tuesday, October 9, 2007, the Lincoln Christian College and Seminary campus community and special guests came together to celebrate and express gratitude for the new positive learning environment created for our students through the estate gift of the founding librarian and a local community foundation. Collectively we re-dedicated the Jessie C. Eury library to its vital role to facilitate the lifelong learning of its students by providing essential resources, services, and instruction. The highlight of this special event was the presentation of the following essay – “The Unquiet History of the Jessie C. Eury Library of Lincoln Christian College and Seminary” – by Dr. Robert Lowery, Dean of the Seminary. Dr. Lowery’s passion for teaching, speaking, writing, reading, and libraries is evident to his students, colleagues, and readers around the world. His New Testament scholarship is reflected in this essay and his latest book, Revelation’s Rhapsody: Listening to the Lyrics of the Lamb (How to Read the Book of Revelation). As you read his essay may you join us in offering God the ultimate honor and glory for the biblical and theological foundation of our libraries.
