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.

About John Gresham Machen
John Gresham Machen (1881–1937) was professor of New Testament at Princeton Seminary from 1915–1929. After a dispute against the emerging modernist theology at Princeton, Machen became one of the principal founders of Westminster Theological Seminary in Philadelphia, where he taught until his death. Machen is considered the last of the great Princeton Theologians (after Archibald Alexander, Charles Hodge, A. A. Hodge, and B. B. Warfield), and his works reflect their tradition of conservative, Calvinist orthodoxy.
