History of Princeton Seminary
Volume 1 1812-1868
Volume 2 1869-1929
David C. Calhoun
This is considered the definitive story of
the rise and fall of the greatest theological seminary known to
Volume 1. Modest in its origins, but blessed with professors marked by
personal devotion to Christ as well as academic brilliance, the name
of Princeton Seminary became almost synonymous with erudite biblical
exposition, carefully worked-out reformed theology, and deep
spirituality. In volume 1 of this magnificent work, Dr. Calhoun traces
the moving story of the years 1812-1868. Here we meet great
spirituality great scholars, great missionary vision and great
consecration to Christ. 522 pgs
In Princeton Seminary, volume 2: The
Majestic Testimony, David Calhoun continues his history of Princeton
Seminary begun in the widely acclaimed volume 1, Faith and Learning.
Here we encounter the great Hodge lineage; the broad scholarship of B.
B. Warfield; the brilliance of Geerhardus Vos; the emergence of the
young J. Gresham Machen. And through them we are introduced to the
army of men they taught, loved, and sent throughout the world to serve
Persia and the Bible

The title pretty much describes it.
Provides history of Persia during periods intersecting
with Old Testament history and events. Respected evangelical scholar. Takes
a pretty serious commitment to get through this material. I really
expected this book to be better organized, much of the material seems
pasted together from various journal articles and really doesn't flow
smoothly. No effort to
help the casual reader by organizing data into relevant tables. Still,
contains lots of information on subjects otherwise hard to locate.
