The First in a Series of "Occasional Bibliographic Papers of the B. L. Fisher Library"


This paper, vas first presented to the twenty-fifth annual conference of the American Theological Library Association in June, 1971. Each year the Association attempts to provide a bibliographic paper relating to the theological tradition of the institution at which the annual conference is held. This paper is then printed in the PROCEEDINGS of the Association and serves as a guide for library acquisitions in the member schools.

The 1971 Conference was held at Pasadena College, Pasadena, California, a denominational college of the Church of the Nazarene. Dr Genevieve Kelly, then vice-president and program chairman of the Association, requested a paper on the American Holiness Movement. Since so little has been done in this area, I prepared a paper of broader orientation than some in the series in the hope that it could also serve to introduce others to this neglected facet of the American Church. A number of those present at the Conference requested that the paper be made available to a wider readership than that of the PROCEEDINGS of the Association. This booklet is presented in response to those requests. No attempt has been made to revise the paper. Only minor; and primarily stylistic, changes have been made. Local references and the oral style have been retained.

The library faculty of the B.L. Fisher Library hope that this paper will be only the first in a series of "Occasional Bibliographic Papers of the B.L. Fisher Library." Such papers would present in similar format other bibliographic projects of faculty and friends of Asbury Theological Seminary.

I would like to express appreciation to the Rev. David J Wartluft, executive secretary of the American Theological Library Association, for granting permission to reprint this paper from the PROCEEDINGS; to Mrs. Esther Richter, the library secretary-receptionist, who typed two drafts of this paper from a difficult manuscript; to Mrs. Robert Lyon who prepared the final copy for print- ing; and especially to Mr. Frank Dewey, my student assistant, who checked all the references and did much of the proofreading. I take all responsi- bility for any errors and would be pleased to be informed of any that are noticed.
