Overview

This book details the history of the building and founding of the Thornwell Orphanage. First opening its doors in 1875, the orphanage was founded by William Plumer Jacobs, a Presbyterian minister and theologian in Clinton, SC. The facility was named for Thornwell for his theological inspiration and was founded in the wake of the Civil War. History of God’s Work Through His People for the Thornwell Orphanage is an inspirational story of God’s work through an orphanage that is still around today.

Professor Eugene Genovese describes Thornwell as wanting “to envision a Christian society that could reconcile, so far as possible in a world haunted by evil, the conflicting claims of a social order with social justice and both with the freedom and dignity of the individual.” These ideas shine through in Thornwell’s writings, which are now more accessible than ever through Logos Bible Software. In electronic format, his writings are easily searchable and easily referenced—his works in Logos make the ideal companion to theological studies.
