Full Product Description
During this period Princeton had been the premier seminary in the country, and no other teacher in America had come even close to instructing this many ministers during his career. Hodge shaped not only Presbyterianism and evangelical Christianity in his generation but would have 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.
Hodge lived during an era of great crisis in the United States. Living for most of the nineteenth century, he would witness the abolition tumult of antebellum America, the bloody War Between the States, and the ongoing struggle of Reconstruction. His own Presbyterian Church would experience its greatest division during his lifetime.
In the midst of these national and ecclesiastical calamities, the pen of Charles Hodge was active, constantly seeking to build bridges between adversaries. Though a peacemaker by demeanor, 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.
Charles Hodge by Don Fortson was published by Evangelical Press in May 2013 and is our 58096th best seller. The ISBN for Charles Hodge is 9780852349274.

Charles HodgeAlan Hill, via The Good Book Stall
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.

'Charles Hodge was one of the most learned and influential of Presbyterians in an era when Presbyterianism in America was known for its learning and influence. He remains important because his theology became the norm for much of later conservative Presbyterianism. Donald Fortson's brief biography provides a nice window into Hodge's life and thought.'
George Marsden, author of Jonathan Edwards: A Life
