Download Christian Librarianship PDF Format Full Free by Gregory A. Smith and published by McFarland. This book was released on 2002-09-11 with total page 244 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Much of the current library literature assumes that professional library service is necessarily neutral-detached from the librarian's philosophical or religious views. By contrast, contributors to this collection assert that librarianship is best practiced as an outworking of spiritual conviction. Accordingly, they discuss principles for integrating Christian faith and librarianship within various contexts, and reflect on professional issues from biblical and theological perspectives. This text will prove beneficial to Christians working in all types of libraries, whether religious or secular. This compilation of 16 essays is divided into two main parts, the first on theory and the second on practice. The first part includes chapters such as A Rationale for Integrating Christian Faith and Librarianship, The Master We Serve: The Call of the Christian Librarian to the Secular Workplace; and The Impact of the Christian Faith on Library Service. Chapters in the second part include Library Encounters Culture, A Christian Approach to Intellectual Freedom in Libraries and Keeping Sunday Special in the Contemporary Workplace Culture. Contributors include William Fraher Abernathy, Rod Badams, Donald G. Davis, Jr., John Allen Delivuk, Kenneth D. Gill, Graham Hedges, D. Elizabeth Irish, James R. Johnson, Roger W. Phillips, Gregory A. Smith, Stanford Terhune, John B. Trotti, John Mark Tucker and Geoff Warren.

Book excerpt: What do Christianity and librarianship have in common? Netherlands Prime Minister and theologian Abraham Kuyper (1837-1920) was among the first in the modern era to attempt to rejoin the dichotomy of sacred vs. secular study when he said, "no single piece of our mental world is to be hermetically sealed off from the rest." Over the years a number of publications have followed Kuyper's lead yet little has been written on the subject since Greg A. Smith's notable Christian Librarianship (2002). Building on Smith's work, this volume seeks to bridge the sacred/secular divide with an exploration of how Christianity and the gospel are manifested through the profession of librarianship.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: How librarians can be radical positive change agents in their communities, dedicated to learning and making a difference. This book offers a guide for librarians who see their profession as a chance to make a positive difference in their communities—librarians who recognize that it is no longer enough to stand behind a desk waiting to serve. R. David Lankes, author of The Atlas of New Librarianship, reminds librarians of their mission: to improve society by facilitating knowledge creation in their communities. In this book, he provides tools, arguments, resources, and ideas for fulfilling this mission. Librarians will be prepared to become radical positive change agents in their communities, and other readers will learn to understand libraries in a new way. The librarians of Ferguson, Missouri, famously became positive change agents in August 2014 when they opened library doors when schools were closed because of civil unrest after the shooting of an unarmed teen by police. Working with other local organizations, they provided children and their parents a space for learning, lunch, and peace. But other libraries serve other communities—students, faculty, scholars, law firms—in other ways. All libraries are about community, writes Lankes; that is just librarianship. In concise chapters, Lankes addresses the mission of libraries and explains what constitutes a library. He offers practical advice for librarian training; provides teaching notes for each chapter; and answers “Frequently Argued Questions” about the new librarianship.

Excerpt from book: OPEN LETTERS. A Personal Experience. The personal experiences, contributed to your pages,- have been .exceedingly helpful to me, and 1 venture to offer my mite, trusting it may be useful to others, as theirs have been to me. When I studied Christian Science, my teacher impressed on my mind the necessity of taking at least one hour in the day for reading Science And Health, the Bible, and for silent communion. I was determined to do this, and for a year was slowly, but surely gaining in spiritual understanding. But a very subtle temptation came to me, to prove me, in the form of an invitation to spend the winter with some friends, who were wholly absorbed in a life of gayety. They " sat down to eat and drink, and then rose up to play" (1 Cor 10-7). I thought, now is my opportunity to interest these dear friends in Christian Science. I soon found that whatever I did, must be through the language of silence. At first I held to the hour, but gradually the magnetism of my surroundings blinded my sense of Truth to such a degree, that society demands crowded out every other, and I excused myself by saying, it is. no use to try. " While I am with the Romans I will do as they do," and so conformed to the condition of those about me. Often the inner voice would speak to me, but I would answer, " When I get home I will make up for all the hours of time I've taken from Christian Science Study." One evening, in the midst of music and dancing, with the swiftness of an arrow, I was struck with an old belief, of which I had been healed through Christian Science treatment. It returned with tenfold poignancy. I tried to deny and overcome it, but felt that, like Sampson, I was shorn of my strength, and helpless in the midst of the enemy. I was obliged, suddenly, to withdraw from the gay sc...
