A first for the LMU Library...
Here at the William H. Hannon Library, we have extensive holdings in the performing arts - including books, sheet music, audio and visual media, and online streaming collections. But this month marks our first foray into collaboratively hosting a live musical performance!
On Monday February 11 at 8 p.m., a special event related to Manifold Greatness: The Creation and Afterlife of the King James Bible (on display through February 22) will introduce attendees to the lasting presence of the King James Bible in the music of the Black church. In a concert directed by Dr. Diane White-Clayton ("Dr. Dee"), the Sacred Praise Chorale of Faithful Central Bible Church of Inglewood, CA, will perform selected works that highlight the beautiful language of the KJV through worship music. An exhibition viewing and light reception in the library will follow the concert.
With guided commentary by Dr. Dee and Reverend Jason Darden, Protestant and Multifaith Campus Minister at LMU, this celebratory evening of music in the Sacred Heart Chapel is certain to educate and inspire. The concert and reception are free and open to all. (Learn more, and RSVP here.) 
Warmest regards,

The KJV in a Catholic Context
KJV Catholic Panel
This program, the fourth and final in the Manifold Greatness series, takes a look at the relationship between the King James Bible and the Catholic Church.
What was the impact of the KJV on the issue of Bible translation and use within the Roman Catholic tradition?


Are there any doctrinal issues in which the KJV played an important role in the divide between Protestants and Catholics?  


How did the KJV contribute to both dialogue and difficulties in the ongoing tensions between Protestants and Catholics over the last 400 years?

Theological Studies Professors Thomas Rausch, S.J., Jeffrey Siker, Daniel Smith-Christopher, and will explore the answers to these questions, and more in a panel discussion that is free and open to the public. Light refreshments and snacks will be served.

Tuesday February 19 / 6 - 7 p.m.
Von der Ahe Family Suite (library level 3)
