SOTCM disciplines use Books

Books and eBooks are the mainstay of scholarly writing for Theology and Christian Ministry disciplines.  Long form books allow the author to define a topic, explore its history, suggest a new idea, and explore implications and applications of the new idea.  Articles may be too short to adequately cover a SOTCM topic. 

All Nicholson library Books and eBooks are in the library catalog.  So that's the place to start searching. 

The library catalog also includes Indiana partner library books (Click on "Get via Indiana Partner Libraries" and the book will be shipped to Nicholson in 3-5 days, you'll get an email when it arrives.)

And the library catalog includes "WorldCat", literally hundreds of thousands of books owned by U.S. and global libraries.  (Click on Get via Interlibrary Loan" and the book will arrive in a couple of weeks.)
