Product Description

Andrew Hoffecker stresses the fundamental significanceof Charles Hodge's lifelong adherence to his pietist-confessional upbringing, a determination reinforced byhis formative time in Europe as a young man. TreatingHodge's life thematically, as the author does, draws outthe many-sidedness of his career - as Christian believer,educator, theologian, churchman, evangelical statesman, and controversialist. Those who may associate Hodge onlywith his Systematic Theology (great work though that is)are in for a surprise!

Publisher's Description

Charles Hodge (1797 1878) is regarded by many as the most significant American theologian of the nineteenth century. He drove forward the rapid growth of theological education and contributed to Presbyterianism's wide-ranging influence in public life. His advocacy of a Reformed orthodoxy combined with evangelical piety attracted a broad following within Old School Presbyterianism that spilled over into American evangelicalism as a whole. Hodge helped to define a distinctive ministerial model the pastor-scholar and his fingerprints can be seen all over the Reformed Christian scene of today.

    Review: This was a biography on Charles Hodge and his ministry. This is a great series to learn about those who have gone before. We live in a world where these biographies become more important to have an example of Godliness before us due to people moving, changes in the church and the breakdown of the family even in the church. Never before have more people been only been to church on Christmas Eve and Easter when they come to Christ it is through the lives of believers that we can glean the lives we wish to reflect upon for encouragement and example. Charles Hodge had a very dynamic life and his childhood was a model for our culture today to reflect on. It is important to have Godly role models for us to learn from.

    I would like to thank Net Galley and P & R Publishing for allowing me to read and review his book in return for a free copy and I was never asked to write a favorable review by anyone.

    Solid Hodge Biography

    This is truly a wonderful biography on Charles Hodge. This is the 5th book of the American Reformed Biographies Series. This is the first book in the series that I have read, but it has definitely perked my interest in reading more. This book not only gives a wonderful historical representation and account of Hodge's life, but since he was such an influential man in American church history it also serves as a historical reading on the 19th Century American Church. The book is very readable, as some biographies can tend to drag on and on, this one definitely does not. I would recommend this to anyone who is curious about Hodge and American Presbyterianism.
