Amanda Bailey (1938-2020) loved Reformed Theological Seminary and its students. Both a serious reader and student of God’s word, she wanted her theological library to be distributed to Reformed Theological Seminary, Jackson students.
Graduating senior Zach Byrd has received calls to serve Raymond Presbyterian Church and Bethesda Presbyterian Church in Edwards. From Mrs. Bailey’s library, he has been given The Complete Works of Edward Payson. These books are especially meaningful to Zach because of his studies of the life and ministry of 19th century southern Presbyterian minister, Daniel Baker. Baker served at Independent Presbyterian Church in Savannah, Georgia. “His ministry was at a lull,” Zach notes, “and Payson’s Memoir revitalized his ministry. I pray that it does the same for my own ministry.”
