Member Publications

Our Members Are Making an Impact

In response to our chapter's commitments to loving wisdom, pursuing righteous, and serving God and others, the membership of NNU's Delta Chapter has a longstanding commitment to sharing what they have learned.

One of the significant ways our members are impacting the world is through the writing and publication of research. We invite Delta Chapter members to notify us of their publications, and as we receive them, we will add them to our list below. Whenever possible, we will also provide a link to where the resource can be purchased online.

Please congratulate our members for their continued scholarly pursuits and take advantage of the continuing educational opportunities available to you as you learn from books published by your member colleagues.

If you are a Delta Chapter member who has published a book, please let us know and we will be happy to add your publication to our roster.
