Princeton Seminary (1812-1929): Its Leaders' Lives and Works from Gary Steward on Vimeo.

Publisher's Description

Princeton Theological Seminary recently celebrated its bicentennial. Many of the key ideas of the modern era, and Christian responses to them, were formulated between the time of its founding and the early twentieth century—this is the “Old Princeton” era. Gary Steward introduces us to the great men of the seminary’s early days, together with some of their most important writings. While commemorating the legacy of Old Princeton, this book also places the seminary in its historical and theological contexts.

Steward provides biographical overviews of the widely known figures Charles Hodge and Archibald Alexander and of the lesser-known figures Samuel Miller, James Waddel Alexander, Joseph Addison Alexander, and Archibald Alexander Hodge, and he also reviews selected writings from these great men. Not only does he provide a sweeping introduction to Old Princeton, but this book invites further exploration by providing bibliographical material for additional reading and research. The book’s lists and timelines further help to make it a useful reference volume.
