It is my job to evaluate donations for possible addition to the library. As you might guess, we receive numerous duplicates of classics, reference works, and popular writings. We can't keep them all so we pass them on to Better World Books to sell for us on consignment. They can be purchased at a low cost by those who want personal copies and the library receives a modest income from the sales.
Over the past month or so an adjunct professor at Hope, Bob Mink, who is preaching his last sermon at Discovery Christian Church in Moreno Valley this coming Sunday, has been bringing in his library a few boxes at a time. From the looks of it, he has not only read these books, but has actively interacted with them. I have not met him, but I feel the love he has had for these books and how difficult it must be to part with them.

We truly appreciate these men and women passing their passion for reading in preparation for ministry to the next generation.
