Princeton Theological Seminary became one of the leading institutions of theological training during the nineteenth century, and God, Creation, and Human Rebellion provides a window into the early development of what is known today as Old Princeton theology. This book presents systematic theology lectures by Archibald Alexander that were written down by his most renowned student, Charles Hodge. Arranged in question-and-answer format, these lectures cover the introductory matters of theology through the doctrine of God and the doctrine of man. This manual of theology serves as a brief, clear, and thought-provoking primer on Christian doctrine. Whether you are interested in finding out what theological study was like in Old Princeton or want to start learning theology for yourself, this book will be a valuable tool in your pursuit.

This book contains notes written by Charles Hodge from Archibald Alexander's lectures in prolegomena, the doctrine of God, and the doctrine of man, printed for the first time. A fascinating read!

"For slightly over a century, Princeton Theological Seminary served as the bulwark  for confessional and convictional Christianity. Two of its towering figures were Archibald Alexander and his star pupil Charles Hodge. This utterly remarkable book brings us Alexander's teaching from the notes written in Hodge's own hand. Open this book and step back into 1818, pull up a seat in the classroom next to Charles Hodge, and listen as Professor Alexander teaches us about truth, God, the Bible, the covenant, and salvation. These lectures shaped and formed Charles Hodge. They can shape and form you, too."

-  Stephen J. Nichols, president of Reformation Bible College and chief academic officer of Ligonier Ministries
