by Dr. John Aukerman, professor of Christian Education, director of distance education, and director of outcomes assessment at the Anderson University School of Theology.

I was hired to teach in the Anderson University School of Theology in 1984, and have searched in vain for a good comprehensive textbook to use in my Christian education classes. Every new book that came along was either incomplete, or had a theological bent that was inconsistent with our Wesleyan holiness tradition.

It is always exciting to share of gifts received from our many friends.

A substantial gift came to the Seminary from the estate of Vergie S. Bowlby. This endowment makes awards available to any seminary student with financial need. Miss Bowlby also provided a significant gift to Anderson University from this estate.

An estate gift was also received from John Fred Adams of British Columbia for the use of the Seminary Renovation project. This gift was important to the completion of the renovation project.
