If you are experiencing issues using links to materials on the Ministry Matters database (such as The New Interpreter’s Bible, or Abingdon Biblical Commentaries), you are not alone!

We are currently experiencing a problem with the way OCLC is configuring the proxy link for this database and we are working with them to resolve this issue.

While this issue is being fixed, you can still access the New Interpreter’s Bible, and all of the other resources on the Ministry Matters database, through the database page on the Fuller library website at library.fuller.edu. Once on the Fuller website main page, follow the steps below:

  1. Click the Databases button.
  2. If desired, sort databases by topic, such as theology and religion.
  3. Scroll down to the Ministry Matters icon (the list is alphabetical). Click on it.
  4. Proceed to login, using your Fuller ID for remote access if prompted.
Students on Fuller’s campus can also try accessing the database through this direct link .
If you are specifically looking for the New Interpreter’s Bible or Abingdon commentaries, they are both located under the Biblical Commentaries tab as seen below:
If you are still having problems accessing Ministry Matters (or any other eresource) do not hesitate to contact the library at lib-systems@fuller.edu.
We thank you all for your patience as this issue is being resolved!
