A carefully researched and fully documented history of the first 100 years of Southern Methodist University's Perkins School of Theology. #x1C;Professor Allen has encapsulated a century of Perkins history, masterfully combining in-depth research with extensive first-hand knowledge, providing a combination of documented facts and insightful interpretations that both solidify and enliven this fascinating institutional history of one of Methodism#x19;s premier seminaries.#x1D;-Richard P. Heitzenrater, Professor of Church History and Wesley Studies Emeritus, The Divinity School, Duke University #x1C;An insightful and straightforward history of how Perkins School of Theology has struggled to remain faithful to its main mission in spite of challenges, conflicts, failures, and successes.#x1D;-Zan W. Holmes, Jr., Pastor Emeritus, St. Luke Community UMC, Dallas, and retired adjunct professor of preaching, Perkins School of Theology #x1C;The humble details of keeping an institution funded, led, replenished with students and faculty, reinvigorated, and afloat figure in this grand chronicle. Joseph Allen was a participant in forty of the one hundred years of the seminary#x19;s history, both trusted as a player and now calmly and elegantly discharging that trust as an interpreter of its birth, adult life, and its mid-life sense of itself. The self-critical eye of a moralist, as well as the craft of a fine historian, has shaped this narrative.#x1D;-William F. May, Cary Maguire Professor of Ethics Emeritus, Southern Methodist University #x1C;Those who care about the education of church leadership for the future can read this narrative and gain greater understanding of how and why changes have occurred.#x1D;-Bishop Scott J. Jones, Kansas Area of The United Methodist Church
