Charles Hodge

Bitesize Biographies

by S Donald Fortson III


Price: £5.99
Publisher:EP (Evangelical Press)
Published:May 2013
Charles Hodge was one of the most influential American Presbyterian theologians of the 19th Century. He spent almost all his adult life at Princeton Seminary, first as a student then a teacher and finally a professor. His massive three volume Systematic Theology is still in print.

In this book Professor Fortson gives us a detailed overview of his life and works. He spends a great deal of time discussing the hot topics of the day in which Charles Hodge was involved. These include church government, the Oxford movement, slavery and Darwinism.

The book is well written and in an interesting way that encourages one to turn the page. This is quite a feat for the biography of the life of a man in which there were few exciting events.

This book will be of most interest to ministers and students of the reformed faith.
