Accolades for ‘The Bible Cause”

Messiah College has a lovely tradition of celebrating the new books of its faculty by hosting an “Accolades” event in Murray Library. The author gets to talk for a few minutes about the book and ceremoniously hand over the book to the director of the library for inclusion in the library catalogue. And there’s cake.

Last week we celebrated the publication of Dr. Fea’s new book published by Oxford University Press: The Bible Cause: A History of the American Bible Society. Congrats to John for another fine publication. Thanks to Joanna Matlak for these photos.
