Dr. Lawrence E. Holcomb was an Associate Professor of Sociology at Gordon College from 1996-2011. He loved to encourage his students to develop ideas and curiosity about life, always challenging them to think beyond themselves and the obvious.
The Holcomb Book Collection attempts to honor him by including books on topics he was passionate about, such as the intersection of faith with issues of class, race, and gender.
You can find the collection in the Reference Room or view the collection in the NOBLE catalog.
