by Charles Hodge
It is hard to think about Reformed Theology without thinking of Charles Hodge, certainly one of the most often quoted theologians in the Reformed tradition. Originally published as a three volume work, the .mobi version combines the full unabridged texts in a single electronic book. This is an enduring work characterized by clear writing and thorough scholarship. It is a good standard work to add to any Bible reference library. The magnum opus of one of America's most prominent theologians offers an in-depth exploration of theology, anthropology, soteriology, and eschatology. This monumental work, now a standard for theological students, was written while Hodge served as a professor at Princeton, where he permanently influenced American Christianity as a teacher, preacher, and exegete. Includes a comprehensive index.
Once upon a time Princeton University had a very fine theological seminary. If wanted to study theology that was consistent Orthodox Presbyterian theology, consistent what was taught by the Puritans and the Westminster Confession of Faith. Hodges Systematic Theology is consistent with what Princeton University was then and no longer. Princeton fell into the suede to the popular intellectual pursuits of other theological seminaries. This work is comprehensive in presenting sound theological thought. Comparisons are made between theological thought of the Presbyterian church and Calvinism with other schools of thought in theology: Roman Catholic (called Romanist), Lutheran, liberal theology and nonChristian thought. The arguments for historic theology of the Reformed theology are sound and give a fair presentation of contrary thought.
