The “Father of Christian Rock” and one of the key figures of the Jesus People Movement, Larry Norman left his mark on history as an evangelist and artist who used his talents to present the Gospel in the vernacular of the late ’60s and ’70s youth culture. His songs have been translated into over a dozen languages and recorded by over 300 artists. Friends and fans include Bono, Frank Black, Malcolm Muggeridge, and Francis Schaeffer, among others.
Please stop by the Library Lobby and see the exhibit. It will be on display until the end of June.
Jackson Wilcox is an American Baptist pastor, artist, writer, and editor with a ministry career spanning over six decades. At each congregation served he published church newsletters illustrated with his distinctive cartoons and drawings. As a pastor in Hollywood during the Jesus People Movement, he produced a number of cartoons that were published in the Hollywood Free Paper. This collection provides a unique window into the effort to make the Gospel accessible to the distracted youth in the cultural turmoil between 1968-1980.
The Jackson Wilcox Collection at the David Allan Hubbard Library includes cartoons, newsletters, sermon notebooks, newspaper columns, and other materials documenting the ministry of Jackson Wilcox. Come by and look at the exhibition while you sip a cup of joe and delay writing that midterm!
In November of this year, The Brehm Center hosted a series of lectures given by Vanderbilt University’s Dr. Robin Jensen and artist John August Swanson. Students and alumni that attended were invited to create artwork in dialogue with the theme of the lectures: the intersection of faith and visual art and the important role that story plays at this convergence.
“Narrative of Life: A Response to the Brehm Lecture Series,” features works from seven artists who participated in this unique opportunity:

Worth noting is that each of the participating artists chose a different visual medium or style as a means to respond to the Brehm Lectures.
On behalf of the featured artists, the Brehm Center, and Fuller Theological Seminary, we encourage you to engage with the art and the stories behind them. You are invited to a reception to view the works by these student and alumnae artists on Thursday, January 6 from 6:30-7:30pm in the David Allan Hubbard Library on Fuller’s campus.
The David Allan Hubbard Library is pleased to announce that it has received a $10,000 grant from the Virginia H. Farah Foundation.
The Library will use the grant to establish the Virginia H. Farah Foundation Orthodox Studies Collection. These materials will support students doing research on the Orthodox Churches and their contexts as well as strengthen the Library’s overall holdings on Christianity around the world. According to Associate Provost for Library and Information Technology, David Bundy, “We are thrilled that this Foundation so deeply committed to the ministries of the Orthodox Church is partnering with us. The Library’s goal to collect and make available a comprehensive depiction of Christian thought and worship would be impossible without the expertise and generosity of contributors like them.”
Each year the Virginia H. Farah Foundation funds the humanitarian efforts, missionary labor, education, and scholarly work of organizations committed to the Orthodox Church. The Foundation hopes these projects will help spread the Orthodox Christian message while improving the quality of life on earth. For more information, please see http://farahfoundation.org/index.html
