Ever a Vision: A Brief History of Pittsburgh Theological Seminary, 1959-2009
Ever a Vision narrates the fifty-year history of Pittsburgh Theological Seminary. Donald McKim expertly tells the seminary s story, from its first days after the consolidation of its two predecessors Western Theological Seminary of the Presbyterian Church in the United States of America and Pittsburgh-Xenia Theological Seminary of the United Presbyterian Church in North America through today. / McKim describes the tensions encountered in bringing together these two different faculties from denominations which, though both Presbyterian, represented different theological emphases. He recounts the seminary s growth, its struggles, its various curricula and presidents, and examines the concerns and activities of its students through these five decades. Finally, he chronicles the latest chapter of the seminary s development in which its financial condition has been strengthened, its curriculum stabilized, and its vision for the future sharpened.
