New library books coming onto the shelves!

The Cambridge Centre for Christianity Worldwide purchased a large number of new books for the library prior to Covid, and continued to receive a number of books as gifts. Due to lockdowns and closure, the usual processing and cataloguing of these stalled. Now that the library has fully reopened, the work to prepare them for the library has restarted and they are now beginning to make their way onto the shelves!

Here is the first batch which are now ready for the shelves, and ready for borrowing. They are displayed on the ‘New Books’ shelves:

One of these is the long awaited ‘The Letters of Henry Martyn: East India Company Chaplain’ edited by Scott D. Ayler. In this book, Ayler has collated fully annotated transcriptions of all Martyn’s 327 surviving letters and provided a substantial introduction to Henry Martyn, missionary to India and Persia.

Do pop into the library and have a read of them yourself!
