President’s New Book Book and Website

Yesterday we posted a somewhat cryptic looking teaser that referenced some alleged tomfoolery that our President Dan Lockwood was mixed up in. Well, today the announcement was made by the man himself on his Facebook page.

Windows Booksellers (the Campus Bookstore on the Portland campus) is selling all their old "unnofficial" Multnomah clothing at 50% off their already low, low prices! (Insert chain-saw sound here as we talk about "slashing" prices).

Why?

Because there will be new official sweatshirts and t-shirts just in time for the new semester. You spoke, we listened. It will be collegiate and classic - and most of all - quality!

Sneak Peak

But seriously, help them get rid of the old stuff too!

Harper and Metzger Featured in Christianity Today

Once again, another Multnomah faculty-authored book is proving to be worth the effort it took to write it and important enough for more organizations not  named "Multnomah" to promote its merits!

Read the official press release about Exploring Ecclesiology: An Evangelical and Ecumenical Introduction

Huge National Spread

Christianity Today magazine gave it a fantastic treatment when they condensed it down into a 4-page article with custom artwork in their August 2009 issue. This isn't just a book review - it is actually part of the book with Dr. Paul Louis Metzger of the Seminary and Dr. Brad Harper of the Bible College credited as the authors.

PDF of the issue here

Not Just a Textbook

Even though the book is accessible to anyone who wants to read it - and you should if you can - it is also going to be used in the classroom at other institutions. So, it's kind of making an impact.

Kigali Kollection Achieves Goal of 10,000 Books!

Goal Accomplished!

Once again, the Kigali Kollection has reached its goal—this time, five months before the due date. On July 15th, Multnomah staff, Debbie Chin and Mary Newman, both shared the pleasure of entering the 10,000th book to the Kigali book database. Between the two of them, they have entered a total of 6,000 books this summer.

The current count stands at 10,202 and the committee hopes to reach 12,000 books before MU students return in the Fall.

Generous Donors

In addition to all the student, alumni, faculty, staff, and community donations at Multnomah, new donors are coming in all the time. Contributing to the collection were two very generous retired pastors. They donated their libraries, which totalled 1,350 books, to the Kigali Kollection.

Accreditation

Having a library with 10,000 books will allow Kigali Bible College to be an accredited institution (African accreditation bodies require an institution’s library to have 9,000-12,000 books in order for it to be accredited).

Keep Giving!

Although the goal has been met, the Kigali Committee will still continue to collect books until December 18. So don’t stop; keep the books flowing in!

joealdrichDonations from the shelves of Dr. Joe Aldrich (donated by Ruthe Aldrich) and alumnus, Dick Sleeper, helped boost the Kigali Kollection to 8,732 books and 1,030 journals.

This leaves 1,268 more books that need to be collected before reaching the goal of 10,000 books by December 18. So spread the word, and be a book donor. Keep those books coming; just give, give, give!

Clearly, God is good!

How Will the Books Get There?

Many books have been collected... yet, how will they get to Kigali, Rwanda?

After working for three years to become registered as a Rwanda ministry, Africa New Life Ministries is now able to receive shipments. So the organization will store the books until a safe, dry place is ready to receive the Kollection in Kigali. In the meantime, ANLM is raising the finances in hopes of sending all the books at once in a 40-foot container, which will take 1-2 months to arrive in Kigali.

Kollection Update

With over 6 months to go, the Kigali Kollection has received, 7,074 books, 707 periodicals, with 2,926 more books needed before reaching the goal of 10,000. So continue spreading the word, and give, give, give!

Context: Original Kigali Bible College - Kollection - Africa New Life Post

Kollection Was So Successful That...logo_0001

The Kigali Committee is now doubling its goal in hopes of collecting different Bible, theology, and Christian books by May 15, 2009 for the largest theological library in Rwanda. After much prayer, the committee decided that the goal should be "Double or Everything," renaming the drive the "Kigali-Kigali Kollection." The committee is praying toward another miracle of receiving a doubled portion of 4,018 books by the set date. If the "Double" goal is met before graduation, then the new goal will be 5,000!

4 Ways To Participate

  1. Book Donator: Each student donates TWO books; each faculty donates FOUR (or more).
  2. Book Kollector: The committee needs 24 collectors who will be the point person at their churches to get book donations.
  3. Book Recorder: The committee needs 25 people to record books for a minimum of 2 hours. Volunteers will be paid $10/hr (Priority goes to those who have already donated hours previously).
  4. Finance Giver: Give $1 at each SWOT chapel; give a one-time offering; or be a Buck-One-Book giver (BOB).

With 37 days left until graduation, 1,795 more books are needed to reach the goal!
