Book Description

Charles Hodge (1797–1878) is regarded by many as the most significant American theologian of the nineteenth century. He drove forward the rapid growth of theological education and contributed to Presbyterianism’s wide-ranging influence in public life. His advocacy of a Reformed orthodoxy combined with evangelical piety attracted a broad following within Old School Presbyterianism that spilled over into American evangelicalism as a whole. Hodge helped to define a distinctive ministerial model—the pastor-scholar—and his fingerprints can be seen all over the Reformed Christian scene of today.

Charles Hodge trained more than 5,000 ministers in his decades as professor of systematic theology at Princeton Seminary. His book, Systematic Theology (3 Volumes), has been in print from 1873 until now. He defended a theology of radical human depravity and the equally radical redemptive grace of Augustinian (Calvinistic) Christianity.

Dr. Hoffecker is a great admirer of all things Princeton. He intrigues the reader with Hodge's interest in the state of American churches, the world of revivalism, and a theologian's wrestling with the scientific learning of his time. Hodge defended Calvinistic orthodoxy and the inspiration of Holy Scripture. He stood against his own Presbyterian Church when it waded into partisan politics. You will not find a more interesting account of this very human, great believer.

Dr. Andrew Hoffecker writes with great affection for Hodge, with the good judgment of a seasoned historian. Anyone interested in 19th century America, Presbyterian history, church and state, or Calvinism will learn much from Dr. Hoffecker's book. I hope that many will read Charles Hodge in response!
