The first copies of a two-book set documenting the narrative of NNU’s 100-year history are available to pre-order online and be picked up during Homecoming & Family Weekend Nov. 8-11. This book set weaves together many facets of the University through story and photograph.
“Spirit Of Place: Remembrances and Reflections” is a coffee table, pictorial depiction of the “spirit of NNU.” Dr. Gaymon Bennett, emeritus professor of English, compiled and edited the stories from a cross-section of NNU alumni. Pictures and stories within the book are organized around the themes of spirit and community, sacrifice and service, college life, classroom and beyond, people and place, love and laughter and transformation.
“Seeking First The Kingdom: A Centennial History” is a historical narrative written by NNU alumnus Dr. Richard W. Etulain. It is organized around the seasons of presidential service and leadership, taking into account the times, the state of the church and the challenges and opportunities of culture of the time. Both works are designed by NNU Professor of Graphic Arts Paul Kinsman.
