Resources for ministry matter.

The Hoch Bookroom, located on the second floor of the Wood Seminary Building and adjacent to the Edward G. Dobson Study Center, stocks a selection of seminary textbooks and supplemental theological literature, offering resources for sale at competitive prices.

Named in honor of its founder and former Grand Rapids Theological Seminary New Testament professor, the Carl B. Hoch, Jr. Bookroom provides the Grand Rapids Theological Seminary and Cornerstone University community with the finest resources for biblical, theological and ministry scholarship.

Semester Booklist

The Hoch Bookroom is committed to providing textbooks through drop/add week of each semester; after drop/add week, the Hoch Bookroom cannot guarantee that all stock will be available due to the nature of inventory returns.

Course syllabi will become available in Moodle two weeks before the semester begins. For questions, call the Academic Office at 616.222.1422.
