The Covenant Seminary family extends condolences to the family of Dr. Robert L. Reymond, who was promoted to glory on September 20, 2013. Dr. Reymond served as a professor of systematic theology at Covenant Theological Seminary from 1968 to 1990. He later taught at Knox Theological Seminary.

He served also on the PCA General Assembly’s Theological Examining Committee. His widely read New Systematic Theology of the Christian Faith was published in 1998. A list of resources by Dr. Reymond is available at The Gospel Coalition.
