J. Gresham Machen is considered the last in the lineage of the Great Princeton Theologians, following in the steps of Archibald Alexander, Charles Hodge, A. A. Hodge, and B. B. Warfield. Machen taught at Princeton Seminary for almost 15 years and established himself as a well respected New Testament scholar. After a dispute that divided faculty members over an emerging modernist theology, Machen left Princeton and became one of the principal founders of Westminster Theological Seminary, where he taught until his death.
The works included in the J. Gresham Machen Collection (7 vols.) reflect his Calvinist views and reveal the depth and complexity of his thought. Included are Christianity and Liberalism and The Origin of Paul’s Religion, two important critiques of theological liberalism. God Transcendent and Other Sermons, edited by Ned Stonehouse, contains 20 of Machen’s best sermons. In What is Faith? Machen equates liberal theology with anti-intellectualism while illuminating the Bible’s teachings on the foundational tenets of the Christian faith.
