Ever a Vision narrates the fifty-year history of Pittsburgh Theological Seminary. Donald McKim expertly tells the seminarys story, from its first days after the consolidation of its two predecessors Western Theological Seminary of the Presbyterian Church in the United States of America and Pittsburgh-Xenia Theological Seminary of the United Presbyterian Church in North America through today.

/ McKim describes the tensions encountered in bringing together these two different faculties from denominations which, though both Presbyterian, represented different theological emphases. He recounts the seminarys growth, its struggles, its various curricula and presidents, and examines the concerns and activities of its students through these five decades. Finally, he chronicles the latest chapter of the seminarys development in which its financial condition has been strengthened, its curriculum stabilized, and its vision for the future sharpened.
