Christian University Bookstore Celebrates A Decade On Campus

In an era where small independent book stores are closing down, one still remains - and remains true to their passions of providing current and hard to find theology books. More than just a textbook and class notes store, Windows Booksellers have become a staple on Multnomah's campus. Oh yeah, they're open to the public too.

Steadied By Faith

Steadied By Faith

A Message from the Alumni Director

“How could I do such a wicked thing and sin against God?” Genesis 39:9

I've been enjoying Dr. Lockwood’s book, Unlikely Heroes—Ordinary People with Extraordinary Faith, a Biblical and Personal Reflection on Hebrews 11. Through my read I’ve appreciated the opportunity of getting to know our president more. His unique blend of academic perspective and devotional application, as he identifies the cast of these Old Testament characters—simple, ordinary, flawed people living out extraordinary faith, has been encouraging.

Metzger, Romney, and America’s Mormon Moment, Part 2

Evangelicals and the Upcoming Election

As a continuation of a previous MUblog post, this post explores how evangelicals can graciously engage Mormonism as the 2012 U.S. elections approach. The following is a column written by Multnomah's Dr. Paul Louis Metzger earlier this year for evangelical voters in Florida’s Sun Sentinel prior to the Florida primary.

Don’t you folks ever read your Bibles?

Don’t you folks ever read your Bibles?

Bob and Cindi Norsworthy - BS 1983, Wives Certificate 1983

That phrase, and the passion for personal engagement with the Word of God that evoked the challenge, is indelibly etched in a winsome way, in the heart and mind of every alum that ever experienced the life of Dr. John G. Mitchell.

It’s been thirty-three years since I first felt the passion and the intercession behind those words, delivered in that thick Scottish brogue. Yet those words still lead and guide me today, to a sacred and private place of intimacy with my Jesus and the only source in the universe of any “real life” … the Word of God.

Metzger, Romney, and America’s Mormon Moment

The Mormon Moment

It is fair to say that Mormonism has come into the mainstream of American culture with the emergence of Mr. Mitt Romney as the Republican hopeful for the 2012 U.S. presidential race. Some have called this development the “Mormon moment.” Read the rest of this entry »

Alumna Teaches Others How to ‘Walk Free’

JoAnne E. Billison – 2009 MDiv Seminary Graduate

I came into the kingdom of God married and a mother of two. My salvation was the greatest moment of my life and I passionately pursued a relationship with Jesus. I couldn’t get enough of Him. It wasn’t long after I came to Christ that I hungered for more scriptural training and education, so I enrolled at Multnomah Seminary. Read the rest of this entry »

Can Evangelicals Really Be Academics?

We ran across an essay at Inside Higher Ed that was written after the author read the new book titled The Anointed: Evangelical Truth in a Secular Age. It begs many questions of those who consider themselves both academic and an Evangelical. We're pretty sure our faculty fit this profile and that our alumni have an opinion on the matter.

People that burn women alive in cast-divided India. Communistic China. What do these diverse cultures have in common? Read the rest of this entry »
