Overview

A carefully researched and fully documented history of the first 100 years of Southern Methodist University's Perkins School of Theology.

“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’s premier seminaries.”—Richard P. Heitzenrater, Professor of Church History and Wesley Studies Emeritus, The Divinity School, Duke University
“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.”—Zan W. Holmes, Jr., Pastor Emeritus, St. Luke Community UMC, Dallas, and retired adjunct professor of preaching, Perkins School of Theology
“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’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.”—William F. May, Cary Maguire Professor of Ethics Emeritus, Southern Methodist University
“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.”—Bishop Scott J. Jones, Kansas Area of The United Methodist Church
