Benjamin B. Warfield (1851-1921), profesor de Teología Sistemática en el Princeton Theological Seminary, en Nueva Jersey, fue un príncipe entre los teólogos. Pero, a pesar de la amplitud de campos en que cultivó su erudición, de sus enciclopédicos conocimientos y de su grácil pluma, la principal característica de toda su obra fue su profunda lealtad a Cristo. Esto queda ejemplificado a la perfección en los sermones contenidos en El Salvador del mundo, predicados originalmente en la capilla del Princeton Theological Seminary. En las exposiciones de Warfield se conjugan la precisión erudita en el significado de los textos y la calidez de su devoción a Jesucristo. El resultado es un libro de la más alta categoría: instructivo bíblicamente y apasionante espiritualmente. ¡Afortunados los alumnos que oyeron estos sermones en su momento y cuya fe resultó fortalecida por ellos! ¡Afortunados también los ministros, estudiantes y lectores en general que digieran nuevamente este nutritivo alimento espiritual!

Author Bio

B. B. Warfield (1851–1921) was a prolific writer, accomplished scholar, and ranks as one of America’s greatest theologians. After studying mathematics and science at Princeton University, he enrolled at Princeton Theological Seminary in 1873, where he was taught by Charles Hodge, in order to train for ministry as a Presbyterian minister. He later returned to America and taught at Western Theological Seminary (now Pittsburgh Theological Seminary).

In 1881, Benjamin B. Warfield co-wrote an article with A. A. Hodge on the inspiration of Scripture—a subject which dominated his scholarly pursuits throughout the remainder of his lifetime. When A. A. Hodge died in 1887, Warfield became a professor of theology at Princeton, where he taught from 1887 until 1921.

History remembers Warfield as one of the last great Princeton Theologians prior to the seminary’s re-organization and the split in the Presbyterian Church.

Warfield is known as one of Reformed theology’s most ardent defenders. The foundation to Warfield’s theology was his adherence to Calvinism as supported by the Westminster Confession of Faith and much of his writings are centered on this.

He has authored many books in his lifetime, including The Atonement and Modern Thought in the Classic Studies on the Atonement collection, Westminster Doctrine anent Holy Scripture: Tractates by A. A. Hodge and B. B. Warfield, and the titles included in the B. B. Warfield Collection.
