A book in honor of the life and work of Columbia International University President Emeritus Robertson McQuilkin is being written. Organized and edited by CIU professor Dr. Christopher R. Little, the book will include chapters by such well-known figures as Ralph Enlow president of the Association for Biblical Higher Education (ABHE), long-time CIU professor William Larkin, apologist Paul Copan, and Hans Finzel the former president of the missions organization WorldVenture.
CIU dean of the College of Intercultural Studies Mike Barnett says the goal of the book is to use McQuilkin’s legacy and writings as a foundation and springboard to carry forward discussions on various topics of fundamental importance for a new generation in the 21st century. These topics include hermeneutics, world missions, spiritual living, Christian ethics, and church leadership.
Robertson McQuilkin served as CIU’s third president from 1968 to 1990. Prior to becoming president of CIU, McQuilkin served as headmaster of Ben Lippen School, then for 12 years as a missionary in Japan.
Today McQuilkin is a speaker and writer, engaging in an extensive conference ministry across America and overseas.
Publication of the book is expected by the end of 2014.
