Journal Room a Scholar's Paradise

by John Ross

They’re tucked for safekeeping into a private room, but the journal collection at the Xenos Study Center is a research trove with more than 50 scholarly titles covering topics from leadership to textual criticism.

“The peer-reviewed journals that we have available in the journal room are some of our best resources,” Study Center director Caitlin Kleinpaste says. “You can find solid research done by Biblical scholars and critics that will enhance both your teachings and personal study time.”

Titles include Biblical Archaeology Review, Bibliotheca Sacra, Christian History, Journal of Biblical Literature and New Testament Studies, with some subscriptions dating as far back as 1940. Many Study Center subscriptions include access to online archives, and Kleinpaste recently initiated an extensive archiving project that will allow patrons to search journals in the collection by title, author or keyword.

Located in the ground floor of the Main Campus office building at 1340 Community Park Drive, the Study Center also offers more than 12,000 items to borrow, 3,000 reference works and access to the complete Xenos teaching archive.
