What’s in a Name?
Midwestern Seminary is the proud owner of Charles H. Spurgeon’s personal library so we chose a Spurgeon-related name for our bookstore. The “Sword & Trowel” was the name of Spurgeon’s magazine. This name was derived from Nehemiah 4 and the builders who worked with their tools in one hand and a sword in the other. How fitting that a place which provides resources would be named after such an influential resource of the past.
