Covering the growth in the Presbyterian Church of Victoria from 1859 to 1909, this Jubilee history has been written following the church from "seed" to "fruit".
It covers the early days, the arrival of James Clow, John Dunmore Lang and other pioneers of the church; it touches on education – the establishment of a Theological Hall, a Deaconess' Institute, Ormond College, Scots' College, Geelong College, and Ladies' College; on organising the congregations, Sabbath Schools, Guilds and Clubs and the missionary enterprises.

A biographical notes section includes the names of ministers admitted before 1859 who are not mentioned in the text, ministers admitted after 1859 who have gone to their rest, and ministers at present in retirement.
