BookTALK: Guest Speaker Series

This guide contains resources that complement the Guest Speaker Series sponsored by the Center for Writing and Learning Support and Barbour Library


BookTalks is a collaborative effort of Barbour Library and the Center for Writing and Learning Support featuring in-person and webinar conversations with PTS faculty and community members as well as other guests whose work is theological in nature. Our host Dr. Shan Overton not only highlights the books' subject matter, but also discusses the authors' writing processes, welcoming audience questions throughout. BookTalks are enhanced by library staff-curated subject guides and library displays for those interested in finding related resources. Recorded and linked to the PTS website and social media channels, BookTalks are envisioned to be creative resources that engage all who participate in theological and spiritual reflection and knowledge.

This guide brings together a variety of resources related to each speaker and the topics covered during the event. Click on a selection in the menu to the left to start discovering resources!
