In the last few years I have read biographies and studies on Jonathan Edwards, Robert L. Dabney, B.B Warfield, J. Gresham Machen, and John Williamson Nevin just to name a few. I have not really seen any on Charles Hodge, has anyone? Also with P&R doing a series of Biographies on Reformed American Theologians, who do you think it would do us well to learn more about?

OK, I will respond to my own post. I have not really seen any biographies on Charles Hodge and would like to learn about this Reformed American theologian, as well as A.A Hodge and Archibald Alexander.

Here are some noteworthy sites on Charles Hodge:

Evidentally, his son wrote a biography in 1880. (

Maybe someone could convince Sean Lucas to write one.

I am somewhat disappointed by some biographies. The last one on R. L. Dabney was to a certain extent hagiography. The man was a brilliant theologian. However, during Reconstruction and even beyond, he showed himself to be an "unreconstructed" bigot.
By any fair standard he was a racist and wrote racist articles. There is not way to soft peddle his bitterness and irational diatribes against blacks and black pastors. Enough said.

Charles Hodge one of the great Princeton theologians. I have been interested in finding a book surveying the Great Princeton theologians from Archibald Alexander, Charles Hodge, A.A. Hodge, to John Gresham Machen describing the fall of the Princeton Seminary into modernist theology. Where inturn Machen started Westminister. Anbody know any books detailing the subject?

In regards to Machen Defending the faith: J. Gresham Machen certainly refers to the issue as well as J. Gresham Machen, a guided tour of his life and thought.

I have been reading Studies in Southern Presbyterian Theology which has given me the opportunity to read up on some of the lesser know reformed theologian but still including informaiton on men like James Thornwell and RL Dabney.

In reading on biographies of Machen, I have seen where he was friends with a Casper Hodge who did not leave Princeton to go with him to Westminster. I am assuming Casper Hodge was related to either/and Charles Hodge and A.A Hodge. Is this correct and what was his ongoing role with Princeton?

I love reading the works of the Great Princeton theologians like Machen, the Hodges, Archibald Alexander and B.B. Warfield. That was a great period. I have not heard much Casper Hodge though? I just got today "Christianity and Liberalism" by Machen today. Found it in the clearance aisle at 1/2price books for $3 bucks. Thankful for the small victories!

I do know Loraine Boettner while attending Princeton he studied under Casper Wistar Hodge who taught systematic theologcy. He is the other son of Charles Hodge.

I am curious also what was his ongoing role with Princeton.

I appreciate the information #9. I thought that he must be a relative, but I thought he might be a grandson of Charles Hodge.

Here's a link to on-line/digitzed version of the biography of Charles Hodge by his son A.A. Hodge. I read it many years ago, I found a good used copy.

This link is to a copy digitized from the Princeton Seminary library - more fitting than the ones scanned by Google Books.

The "internet archive" is the place to go for anything published before 1918. Seems like all the older stuff from PTS is available. Amongst the many copies of Hodge's Ststematic Theology at the internet archive is Warfield's copy of Hodge!

Another American Reformed theologian biography to consider is the other southern counterpart to Charles Hodge: James Henley Thornwell. There's The life and letters of James Henley Thornwell by B. M. Palmer.

That can probably be found at the internet archive as well (per previous post).

I have noticed that P&R is releasing a biography on Charles Hodge. It looks like it is to be relased in November. It is part of their American Reformed Biography series.

Paul C. Gutjahr has authored "Charles Hodge: Guardian of American Orthodoxy". It was published in March of this year (Oxford Univ. Press).

I am reading Charles Hodge The Pride of Princeton. I am enjoying it and learning more about him. He was such a he influence just by the number of students that he taught.

I have heard there will be a biography released on B.B. Warfield during 2014 as a part of P&R's Reformed Biography series. Does anyone have information regarding this? My understanding was that Carl Truman was writing the biography.
