An Educated Clergy

Scottish Theological Education and Training in the Kirk and Secession, 1560-1850
  • By Jack C. Whytock
  • By Andrew T. B. McGowan
Scotland has long been known for its emphasis upon an ""educated clergy,"" yet little serious historical attention has been given to how this was actually fostered. This book begins to fill that gap. While a thoroughly historical study in Scottish church history and historical theology, the book also serves as a springboard for reflection and application to the work of theological education today with the evangelical Presbyterian and Reformed community. ""The book . . . is a must read, not only for church historians, but for anyone interested in contemporary theological education."" --Stewart Gill, Principal, Emmanuel College, University of Queensland, Australia ""Jack Whytock's An Educated Clergy is reminiscent of John MacLeod's classic, Scottish Theology (1943), yet comes with the substantive documentation never provided in that war-era volume. Now others can go exploring the bypaths of Scottish theology and theological training within and without the Church of Scotland across three crucial centuries. The wider global Presbyterian family stands enriched through Whytock's provision of this doorway."" --Kenneth J. Stewart, Professor of Theological Studies, Covenant College, Lookout Mountain, Georgia, USA ""Since Calvin stated in his Ecclesiastical Ordinances in 1541, 'It will be necessary to build a college, ' Presbyterians have supported the concept of an educated clergy. Dr. Whytock has written the most comprehensive study of this principle in the Scottish Church spanning three centuries. He brings together in this study a wealth of information and reflection which enhances our knowledge of the professors, students, curriculum, and locations which produced generations of Scottish church leaders."" --Laurence S. Kirkpatrick, Vice Principal and Professor of Church History, Union Theological College, Belfast, N. Ireland Jack C. Whytock is the Director of Haddington House, Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, and is the Team Leader for the Mobile Theological Training Team, teaching at partner theological colleges in the developing world. He holds degrees from the University of Waterloo; Regent College, Vancouver; the University of Glasgow; and the University of Wales. Dr. Whytock and his wife, Nancy, have four children.
