Princeton Theological Seminary will hold its annual used book sale in the Seminary‘s Whiteley Gymnasium from Thursday, April 7 through Saturday, April 9. An entrance fee of $25 will be charged on Thursday only.

Why We Do It

book sale 3The PTS Stewardship and Missions Committee‘s annual used book sale is organized and run by PTS students to help other seminary students in developing nations broaden their theological education. Our hope is to raise financial support and awareness for international seminary libraries in need. All proceeds from the book sale will benefit theological seminaries around the world. Many of these institutions are closely connected to the PTS community. They are home seminaries of our international students and professors, places to which these men and women will likely return to teach. These gifts allow our colleagues around the world to build richer library collections in their own languages.
For more information about the sale, donating books, directions, or assistance with unloading large book donations, please contact Ross Lang at ptsbooksale@gmail.com.
