Fifty years ago, alongside Covenant College was founded Covenant Theological Seminary. The seminary hymn, sung annually since 1956, is 'all for Jesus' - a fitting reminder of the Seminary's aims. Over the past five decades much has changed, but two things remain at the heart of the institution - firstly, they train ministers of the gospel and secondly, they seek to do it 'all for Jesus'. This collection of writings to celebrate the last 50 years was put together to emphasize the Christ-centered focus of the mission and calling of Covenant Theological Seminary. In its contents you will find many fascinating subjects expanded upon with wit and perspicacity. Not only will you learn new things - but you will celebrate them profoundly.
