    One thought on “Charles Hodge: Guardian of American Orthodoxy”

    1. I'll forgive the dozen or so typos, because this was a very good book that was published by Oxford Press. Weighing in at 400 pages, this biography of the "Pope of Presbyterianism," Charles Hodge is quite rewarding. I learned a lot about the man himself, who was professor and leader of Princeton Theological Seminary during the 19th century, but I also learned a good bit of history. During a time when the Presbyterian Church in America was facing division between the Old and New Schools, Hodge was [...]

    2. Charles Hodge taught at Princeton Theological Seminary for over fifty years and was perhaps the most prominent American theologian of the 19th Century. During his career, not only did he teach a significant number of Presbyterian ministers, he also taught a large number ofBaptist, Congregational and Episcopal clergy, many who went on to teach in seminaries around the country. His influence at Princeton continued long after his death as his son and other students continued his tradition. Interest [...]

    3. I'm impressed with this very fair and balanced treatment of a great theologian. Besides, you gotta love it when his dog is named "Hodge."I've finished the book and I am impressed with Gutjahr's scholarship and balance. I believe he treated Hodge fairly and handled the great wealth of material with care. I would recommend this book for any interested in learning more of Charles Hodge.I was particularly concerned how he would handle Hodge's comments about the lack of originality at Princeton Semin [...]

    4. This was an enjoyable book on many levels. Most theological books have minimal illustration, but this book opens with several pages of pen and ink sketches of the major people the reader will encounter in Hodge's life. Accompanying each illustration is a brief biography. Paintings and photographs abound throughout the book. Once grown, Gutjahr divides the book into parts based on the decades of the nineteenth century. At the beginning of each section is a painting or photograph of Hodge from tha [...]

    5. Charles Hodge may have had to wait a century between biographies, but Paul Gutjahr's work was well worth the wait. If you have no idea who Charles Hodge is, read this book. If the name "Charles Hodge" provokes visions of a rigid and cold Calvinist, read this book. As a Presbyterian, even I had my doubts about Hodge based on many of the caricatures that prevail today. Reading this book completely changed my mind. Though this book is scholarly and rigorously researched, it is also well-written and [...]

    6. excellent! i read this in Wooster, Ohio! we have such a great heritage in our protestant and evangelical faith! wow! we don't realize how much we in North America owe this man, we evangelicals, for his faithful stand against the liberalism and the extremes of higher criticism of the late 1800s. Hodge was plain in his teaching of the gospel truth and the Scriptures at large, but what he taught resonated with the love for the reformers and the reformation, faithfully teaching the truth as it is in [...]

    7. Great overview of his life. The chapters are not too long and Gutjahr's narrative is easy to read. I had to return it before I finished. I stopped at chapter 40. I give it 4 stars not because it was lacking something necessarily, but because I reserve 5 stars for books that really challenge and effect my thinking to a great extent. For example, John Stott's The Cross of Christ was one of those.

    8. Excellent read! Concise chapters, engaging style, meticulous research, edifying subject, and powerful life."Posterity might remember Hodge for his magnificent mind, but for those who knew him best, what set him apart was his even-more-magnificent heart."
