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.
