The collection is named in honor of Donald C. Frisk
(1911-2010), a pastor in the Evangelical Covenant Church
(ECC) and professor
of theology (1945-1978) and dean (1961-1967) of North Park Theological Seminary
, Chicago. In memory of Donald Frisk's life and
work, family and friends have established a fund that contributes to this collection. The purpose of
the Frisk Collection is to bring to an online user both published and unpublished writings central
to the core of the literary heritage of the ECC from the mid-nineteenth century to the present in
Sweden, North America, and various parts of the world. See also the Frisk
Collection of Our Covenant
This digital collection makes
accessible hard-to-find original publications that are considered to be key texts in the formation
and growth of the ECC. Works cover a variety of themes such as theology, Bible, history, biography,
education, spirituality, mission, and records of various institutions of the ECC. Many works were
originally written in Swedish. Although some titles were eventually published in English
translation, other translations have been available only as archival manuscripts. Available here are
both the original Swedish works and their English translations. In addition, unpublished documents
will be selectively included.
The original items digitized in this collection are cataloged in the Covenant Archives and Historical Library
located at the F. M. Johnson Archives and
at North Park
in Chicago, Illinois. The Evangelical Covenant Church is a multiethnic denomination
in the United States and Canada with ministries on five continents of the world. It was founded in
Chicago in 1885 by Swedish immigrants.
The archives staff will add items to this
collection periodically. If you would like to suggest an item for digitization, please contact the
