In sixteen powerful addresses, Princeton Sermons takes us inside the chapel of the Theological Seminary at Princeton during the years 1891–1892. These "represent the ordinary sermons preached Sabbath by Sabbath" by the esteemed Princeton faculty, including professors, the Dean, and the President of the University. The audience consisted chiefly of divinity students, and this collection provides a window into Princeton Seminary life during a period of growth and great scholarship. These sermons are as powerful and resonant as the day these great faculty members—including B. B. Warfield, Caspar Wistar Hodge, Jr. (youngest son of Charles Hodge), and William H. Green—preached them.
