About the Author
Machen taught at Princeton Seminary from 1906 until its reorganisation in 1929. Then he left to help found Westminster Theological Seminary in Philadelphia, where he served as professor of New Testament until his death from pneumonia on New Year s Day, 1937. In 1936 Machen was instrumental with others in founding what became the Orthodox Presbyterian Church, and was its first Moderator.
Machen s books published by the Trust are The Christian View of Man, What is Faith?, God Transcendent, and New Testament Introduction.

the book is solid and unanswered by liberal scholars, as is his "The Virgin Birth of Christ" which I also highly recommend. You want answers for yourself that you can share with others, believers or non-, this is a good place to begin an informed and intelligent answer for your true Biblical faith.
"Indeed nothing makes a man more unpopular in the controversies of the present day than an insistence upon definition of terms. Anything, it seems, may be forgiven more readily than that. Men discourse very eloquently to-day upon such subjects as God, religion, Christianity, atonement, redemption, faith; but are greatly incensed when they are asked to tell in simple language what they mean by those terms. They do not like to have the flow of their eloquence checked by so vulgar a thing as a definition."
This book was first published in 1925! Post-modernism has been around for a while.
