Author Bio

D. G. Hart studied American history at the Johns Hopkins University and has served as Director of the Institute for the Study of American Evangelicals at Wheaton College and Academic Dean and Professor of Church History at Westminster Seminary in California. He is currently Visiting Professor of History at Hillsdale College. His books include Defending the Faith: J. Gresham Machen and the Crisis of Conservative Protestantism (1994); The Lost Soul of American Protestantism (2002); With Reverence and Awe: Returning to the Basics of Reformed Worship (2002); John Williamson Nevin: High Church Calvinist (2005); and A Secular Faith: Why Christianity Favors the Separation of Church and State (2006).

Editorial Reviews

Defending the Faith reads with the passion and pathos of historical reconstruction at its best. Hart is a gifted writer, and his subject is a fascinating individual.
A readable and compelling narrative. . . . Machen remains worth hearing, and Hart succeeds admirably at making him audible.
A challenging, informative, and nonprejudicial look at the most ‘highbrow’ of the fundamentalists, J. Gresham Machen. . . . For a scholarly book that will provide edifying challenges and enough food for thought to support a hibernation, read Defending the Faith.
Provides Machen with a deserved biography, rewarding for the way [Hart] sets the theologian into the context of the 1920s.
