In celebration of 40 years of education in the South Pacific, Pacific Adventist University (PAU) is thrilled to announce a generous book donation from Dr George Knight.

Dr Knight has donated a significant portion of his personal library, consisting of approximately 10,000 books delivered in 216 boxes. The collection encompasses a wide range of topics, including Adventist History, the writings of Ellen White, world and church histories, dictionaries, commentaries, theology studies, ethics, education, philosophies and reference materials.

The donation stems from discussions held two years ago between Dr Knight, PAU administrators and the dean of the School of Humanities, Education and Theology. Dr Knight felt led by God to designate PAU as the recipient of this invaluable collection.

While a selection of reference books will be integrated into the main library for student use, the majority of the collection will significantly enhance the holdings of the Pacific Adventist Research Centre. This will be a boon for students pursuing research in Adventist Studies or Pacific History.

The collection was secured in February and recently cleared by customs in Port Moresby. A special prayer service was held to mark the occasion and celebrate the positive impact this gift will have on the PAU community.
