Warren and Betty Wiersbe Library and Reading Room

Announcing the Warren and Betty Wiersbe Library and Reading Room

Dr. Warren Wiersbe, one of the foremost Bible teachers, professors, and authors of the 20th century, a man known as the pastor’s pastor, has gifted his vast personal library to Cedarville University. This impressive collection of commentaries, nonfiction publications, and works of literature will be housed in the Warren and Betty Wiersbe Library and Reading Room, to be located in Cedarville’s Center for Biblical and Theological Studies.

We are blessed to steward this remarkable collection, which is far more than just books on a shelf. Because of Dr. Wiersbe’s notes and observations, these resources are the accumulated wisdom and insight of one of the great servants of the church. What a blessing and resource this will be to our faculty and to our students — in a very real way continuing Dr. Wiersbe's legacy of Gospel ministry.

Take a tour through the planned Warren and Betty Wiersbe Library and Reading Room. This beautiful reading and research space is set to open fall 2019.
