Eden Seminary Bookstore
The Eden Bookstore is closed for the summer.
Eden's Bookstore is located in the north end of the lower level of Schultz Hall on the campus of Eden Theological Seminary in Webster Groves, Missouri, a suburb of Saint Louis. The Bookstore is a resource for students, pastors, churches and church people. The store carries a wide range of books and resources to support study and church programs.
In September 2013 the Eden Bookstore relocated to a more spacious area on the Ground Level of Schultz Hall on the Eden Campus with expanded hours of 8:00 am to 4:30 pm Monday - Friday. Director Hannah Rice Hill explained that the new look and feel was inspired by the positive response to the displays created when the bookstore went on the road to General Synod in the summer of 2013.
The new space is both open and inviting, allowing room for a new display style of round tables as well as traditional shelving where books are grouped by category. Ministry, social issues, children and youth, interfaith, pastoral care, sexuality, preaching and worship, theology, and spirituality are a sampling of the categories available at the bookstore. Hannah explains that the topics were chosen based upon what people are thinking and writing about. The design and choice of available books have been created to encourage browsing, reading, and interacting by both clergy and laity.
Exciting new products are also available including t-shirts (short- and long-sleeved), sweatshirts, fleeces, hats, liturgical stoles, pottery, CDs, Eden pens, and more. In addition, Thistle Farms products such as lotions, candles and oils can be purchased the bookstore.
In a time when traditional bookstores seem to be disappearing, it is exciting to see the enhancements to the space and offerings of the Eden Bookstore!
