The text gives an excellent definition of liberalism vs. Fundamentalism--Machen calls for the liberals to leave the conservative churches and start their own denominations and churches--that did not happen and most conservatives were timid enough to co-exist with the liberals--Machen separated himself from Princeton Seminary and started his own school: Westminster Seminary in Philadelphia, PA--he then left the Presbyterian denomination and started a Conservative Presbyterian denomination--J. Gresham Machen was a great man of God who stood for the truth of the Bible and separated himself from people who would not do the same--must reading for everyone interested in the difference between Conservative Fundamentalism and Liberalism--
The new foreword by Carl Trueman, while interesting, is really unnecessary. He gives a brief exposition of Machen's main thesis and the way in which he unpacks it through the book, but such an explanation is almost superfluous as Machen's argument is so clearly presented that it is almost impossible to misunderstand him. Overall, though, this book is a classic that should be read and reread by anyone engaged in ecumenical discussions.
