Church historians and other scholars are aware of the significance of J. Gresham Machen. He was the New Testamentprofessor at Princeton Theological Seminary from 1906 to1929, when he resigned to found Westminster Theological Seminary in Philadelphia. Machen is best known as a capable apologist for Christianorthodoxy, especially through the publication of his masterful Christianity and Liberalism. That he is recognized as a significant figure is shown by one of his sermons being included in the publication American Sermons: The Pilgrims to Martin Luther King Jr. A major question facing Machen, and which still faces Christians today, is whether or not Biblical authority can be maintained in the face of modern historical scholarship. Machen knew the critical views firsthand, and often felt the appeal of liberal positions, so his answers are the product of hard fought battles. Machen arrived at his conclusions using a rigorous methodology and honesty.
