Popular Lectures on Theological Themes


Presbyterian Board of Publication 1887

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


This volume began as a series of lectures delivered in a women’s class at Princeton in the mid-1880s. After Hodge received repeated requests to deliver these lectures for a broader audience—and glowing reviews of their content in the Presbyterian and the Presbyterian Journal—he compiled them into this accessible monograph for wider distribution.

Popular Lectures on Theological Themes explains theology in accessible language for a wide—and not necessarily theologically-trained—audience. He aims to make theological topics sensible and straightforward: he writes at the outset, “All theology must be theocentric—must have God for its beginning and end.” Popular Lectures on Theological Themes also includes chapters on hotly-debated theological topics such as predestination, the sacraments, miracles, and the efficacy of prayer.

Wait! This and many other works from A. A. Hodge are available at a discount as part of the A. A. Hodge Collection!
