Browse the Stacks Yourself
On the 4th Floor of Sawyer
- New Testaments: BS1965 - BS2213
- Bibles: BS140 - BS391
The assignments will require you to compare multiple New Testaments. I've made the decision against putting all or most of the library's New Testaments on reserve, because I want you to be able to peruse the stacks of New Testaments themselves. This means, however, that I need for the students in the class to promise not to check Sawyer Library New Testaments out for themselves.

Study New Testament for Lesbians, Gays, Bi, and Transgender
The World's first Study Bible for the Gay and Lesbian community. Deep in the shuddering guts of that religion known as Christianity is a rich and troubling history of persecution. Bullying. The singling out of those the church professes to be anti-God, such as gay, lesbian, bi and transgendered people. All built up from the foundation that is God's Word, the Bible. Only it isn't. There is no Scriptural foundation for this persecution, no anti-gay passages in the Bible that the Church professes there are. There have been mistranslations. Check. Persecutions. Check. Bullying. Check. But none of this is set down in the original languages and context of the Bible as God's Way.
