Library

The NEST Library is home to roughly 60,000 volumes, 80 periodicals, and a unique holding of manuscripts, archives, and rare books. The majority of these texts are in English, while works in Arabic, Armenian, Syriac, and other languages can also be found. The subjects of Theology, Church History, Missiology, Philosophy, and History compose the backbone of the NEST Library, and support its aim to facilitate and nurture the study of the Protestant faith and heritage in the Middle East.  Library services are available to all users through our automated system on site at the library and online through the following links:
