Publisher's Description

This sesquicentennial project of Presbyterian College tells the stories of thirteen individuals, chosen from among its graduates, faculty and benefactors, whose still voices represent in unique ways the history and influence of the college over the past 150 years. Each chapter presents a biography, a sermon, address, letter or report, followed by a commentary showing how this still voice spoke to the issues of the time and why it still should be heard. The themes remind us of the college's continuing mission to provide the Church with strong and visionary leaders. The book concludes with useful lists of Presbyterian College's students, scholars, supporters and societies down through the years. "The editors have creatively combined biographical essays with addresses, letters, reports, and sermons to present the history of its ministry to both English and French Protestants, showing how its leaders, graduates, and supporters shaped Christianity and culture in and beyond Canada." --Phyllis Airhart, Professor of the History of Christianity, Emmanuel College, University of Toronto "This book inspires As an archivist, the concept of presenting the 150th anniversary history of Presbyterian College, Montreal, by way of well-chosen key 'voices' influenced by that institution is most effective, and makes for a compelling and Spirit-filled read." --Kim Arnold, Archivist, The Presbyterian Church in Canada "What a wonderful way to celebrate an anniversary The various lives chronicled here are testament to the vitality and witness of Presbyterian College, Montreal, and the changes in the Presbyterian Church in Canada, particularly the place of women within the church. The mix of biography and sources . . . brings these individuals and their times to life." --Stuart MacDonald, Professor of Church and Society, Knox College "The publication of a sesquicentennial study of Montreal's Presbyterian College should excite anyone who wants to learn about our Canadian Presbyterian heritage. The recovery of the stories of many who provided leadership in the past is encouraging for our future." --Don MacLeod, Research Professor of Church History, Tyndale University College and Seminary "This creatively edited book offers unusually effective insights for the Presbyterian College in Montreal's 150-year history. Each chapter features something written by a significant figure connected to the college, but also interpreted in context by a contemporary author. The result is an excellent account of the college, while illuminating much wider domains in Canada and beyond." --Mark A. Noll, Francis A.
