The article is a reflection on the state of theological libraries at a time when financial constraints and the move to managed electronic databases challenge the possibility of maintaining large paper collections. Theological reflection is offered on the importance of a theological library as a palpable presence of the communion of saints and a symbol of God's investment in the world which is at once material, historical, local, and communal. The paper was presented to the Australian and New Zealand Association of Theological Libraries Conference in Canberra, October 2009.
