Two Southern Exchange Volunteers Working to Put Good (Free) Books in Student Hands December 10, 2020
If there’s one attribute that seems to be universal among SBTS students it is a love for reading and a passion for good books.
For those in ministry, it’s doubly important to be given to reading, for God has revealed himself in a book and studying it is fundamental to the minister’s calling.
Two longtime volunteers have been working tirelessly behind the scenes these past few months to put more good books into the hands of seminary students free of charge through The Southern Exchange. The Southern Exchange serves students and student families through the distribution of free used clothing, shoes, household goods, furniture, and good books.
