In 1872, Professor Charles Hodge celebrated fifty years of teaching at Princeton Seminary in New Jersey. For a half century, Dr Hodge had trained almost three thousand ministers, missionaries and professors who had carried the gospel message throughout the United States and many parts of the globe.

Hodge shaped not only Presbyterianism and evangelical Christianity in his generation but had a lasting impact upon generations of clergy in America who devoured his writings and found in them a source of great intellectual and spiritual nourishment.

Though a peacemaker by demeanour, he understood that there was also a time to take a stand. And stand he did against the early waves of liberal theology that invaded America in the nineteenth century. Widely hailed as a defender of truth, Hodge battled a rising tide that was beginning to erode the sacred shorelines of historic Christianity.
