Robertson McQuilkin Honored in Book, CIU Chapel

The CIU community gathered on Oct. 15 with President Emeritus Robertson

McQuilkin and his wife, Deb, to dedicate a newly-published book honoring his life

and ministry titled, “Transformed from Glory to Glory.” The book was edited by CIU

Intercultural Studies professor Dr. Christopher Little, and a number of CIU faculty and

alumni who contributed to the book joined him on stage to deliver brief messages

during the Chapel.

The book includes a variety of topics important to McQuilkin, including missions,

hermeneutics, the victorious Christian life, and Christian ethics. The authors hope

to use McQuilkin’s legacy as a foundation for discussion of important topics in the


“I have felt unworthy throughout the whole project,” Little said. “We need others to

stand in Robertson’s place, to do the things he did and say the things he said.”

As the book’s authors gave testimony to the impact McQuilkin had made on their

lives, it was clear that he influenced a multitude of people.

“I regard Robertson to be my most influential ministry model and mentor,” said Ralph

Enlow Jr., president of the The Association for Biblical Higher Education (ABHE) and

former CIU provost. “I can attest that Robertson’s life has borne fruit that nourishes

me and many others.”

Though most current CIU students haven’t had much direct contact with McQuilkin, a

few mentioned they were impressed with the impact he had on their professors.

“Today’s Chapel was an excellent opportunity to see the incredible impact one man

of faith can have on a community,” junior Joy Law said.

After several professors and alumni spoke of McQuilkin’s enormous impact, current

CIU president Dr. Bill Jones invited McQuilkin to offer a few words. He had only three

to share: “This is embarrassing.”
