Ministry Matters database includes a research library of books reformatted in the HTML format with a top-down navigation that makes finding the book information challenging. Let's try to solve this together.

  1. Use Browse in the Legacy Library to access the content.
  2. To access the ebook, click on the title.
  3. To access the table of contents, use a navigation menu on the right side.
