About Dr. Stewart

Dr. Ken Stewart is a transplanted Canadian (now a U.S. citizen) who has recently retired from a teaching career at Covenant College, Lookout Mountain, GA. There, he served as Professor of Theological Studies since 1997. Theological teaching has been his second career; earlier, he pastored churches in three regions over 14 years. He remains a teaching elder in Tennessee Valley presbytery of the PCA. He met his wife, Jane, while studying at Westminster Seminary, Philadelphia. Together, they have been blessed with four children and (to date) three grandchildren. Ken’s hobbies include canoeing, biking, and growing vegetables.

Ken’s passion is church history and historical theology; he aims to help Christians learn to ‘mine’ the past in ways that bear on today’s issues and questions. Stewart is the author of three books that illustrate the need for a wise use of the past:Restoring the Reformation: British Evangelicalism and the Francophone Réveil 1817-1849, Ten Myths About Calvinism: Recovering the Breadth of the Reformed Tradition, and In Search of Ancient Roots: the Christian Past and the Evangelical Identity Crisis. He is also the co-editor of three volumes: The Advent of Evangelicalism, The Presbyterian Experience: Evangelical and Presbyterian across Four Centuries, and The Geneva Réveil in International Perspective.

He has published more than 20 research papers and over 100 book reviews. He remains active in the Evangelical Theological Society.
