Rare Book Displays and Events
There are so many things to see and do in the Allison Library, especially in regards to our rare book collections.
Every few months, you can find a new display about a handful of our rare books in the main foyer of the library. Displays on early editions of Bunyan's books and Dr. J.I. Packer's marginalia are currently sitting in this spot for you to enjoy.
The Allison Library also hosts hour-long rare book talks with a time for questions and answers on one of our featured books. In 2018, Dr. J.I. Packer spoke on John Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress and Jenny-Lyn de Klerk spoke on John Owen's Eshcol. Stay tuned for details about our next book talk with Ross Hastings on Jonathan Edwards' Religious Affections.
Last year, the Allison Library welcomed scholars, students, pastors, and community members to a conference on the Puritans called, "Uncommon Devotion: Reflections on Puritan Texts." Click here to see a photo album of highlights.
