Book List - J Term 2012

Return to Booklists home page.

J-Term 2012 course textbooks are listed below.  Some courses have both required and recommended texts listed.  We have provided this list so that students are free to purchase them wherever and however they choose – either through an online book site such as Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Abe Books, etc. or through the Seminary Coop or other physical stores.  You are also free to purchase used or E-Reader books as desired.

In some cases, especially for worship-related resources, books may only be available through Augsburg Fortress, and this is usually noted.  You can visit their website at http://www.augsburgfortress.org/default.jsp.

Please note that there may be changes made to this list between the time of its initial posting and when classes begin.  An email will be sent to all students if changes are made to the list. Check back to this list as we will update it as information is received.
