College Voices tells the story of Christ's College Aberdeen, a theological college of the Church of Scotland, from its beginnings in the 1840s to the present day.

This is a rich and colourful story, vividly told, and peopled with many fascinating characters and stories.

Written by the College's administrator, who saw how the personalities of teachers and students alike shone through the formal language of minute books and other records, College Voices relates how the College grew and evolved alongside the history not only of Scotland but of the world. It demonstrates the effects on ministerial training of two world wars, and is honest about times when the College was threatened by closure and scandal.

Hundreds of young men, and later women, have passed through the doors seeking to meet the demands of the College and authorities to become ministers for the Free Church, the United Free Church and, since 1929, for the Church of Scotland.

`The author writes as an active participant in the history of the College ... the history of the College is not simply a series of facts and figures. Rather, it comprises a series of persons and personalities, all of whom have contributed to the creation of the College today.' -- From the Foreword by the Revd Professor John Swinton, Master, Christ's College
