“On this Church question, Rome connects the wrong subject with the right predicate” (Page 130)

“God is present everywhere equally as to His essence, though not as to His power or manifestation. He is present in hell as much as in Heaven as to His substance; but His manifestation is widely different. It is this difference that makes Heaven and hell what they are. It is the Divine presence that makes Heaven—God’s loving presence in Christ. It is God’s presence, too, that makes hell—His wrathful presence, His frown, His searching eye looking right through the fallen spirits who have impugned but cannot evade His righteous authority.” (Page 157)

“Whenever you find vital piety—that is, penitence and a devotional spirit—there you find the doctrines of the fall, of depravity, of regeneration, of atonement, and of the Deity of Christ. I never saw or heard of a single individual, exhibiting a spirit of piety, who rejected any one of these doctrines.’” (Page 30)

“It is a miserable thing when men get so broad and charitable as never to have any fighting. Rather let us have the Inquisition and a little blood-letting, than a dead apathy about religious doctrine.” (Page 165)

“Dr Hodge has done more for Calvinism than any other man in America” (Page 36)

Charles Hodge counts as one of the most influential theologians of the nineteenth century and one of Calvinism’s most ardent defenders in America. He was born in 1797 in Philadelphia to Hugh and Mary Hodge. He graduated from the College of New Jersey (Princeton University) in 1815, and was ordained in the Presbyterian Church in 1821. In 1822, at the request of Archibald Alexander, he became a professor at Princeton, and taught biblical literature and systematic theology until 1878. From 1826 to 1828, Hodge also studied in Europe, and became acquainted with Friedrich Augustus Tholuck, Wilhelm Gesenius, Augustus Neander, and Friedrich Schleiermacher.

During his tenure at Princeton, Hodge instructed more than three thousand ministers, served as moderator of the Presbyterian General Assembly in 1846, helped revise the Presbyterian Church’s Book of Discipline, and served on the Board of Foreign Missions. He also founded the Biblical Repertory and Princeton Review and served as its editor for forty-three years. In addition to his systematic theology and four Bible commentaries, Hodge also wrote books on the Presbyterian Church and published numerous articles.

Charles Hodge died on June 19, 1878. Among his last words: “To be absent from the body is to be with the Lord, to be with the Lord is to see the Lord, to see the Lord is to be like him.”

Archibald Alexander Hodge was born in 1823 in Princeton, the son of Charles Hodge. He was named after Archibald Alexander, the principal of Princeton Theological Seminary from 1812 to 1840. A. A. Hodge attended Princeton College and Princeton Theological Seminary, graduating in 1847. He spent three years in India as a missionary, before returning to America to become professor of systematic theology at Western Theological Seminary in Pittsburg, Pennsylvania in 1864. In 1877, A. A. Hodge left Western Theological Seminary to return to Princeton Theological Seminary to succeed his father as the chair of systematic theology. Archibald Alexander Hodge died in 1886.
