This is the first biography of John A. Mackay (1889-1983), an important Presbyterian leader, missionary, and professor who served as president of Princeton Theological Seminary from 1936 to 1959. As president, he rebuilt the seminary faculty after the split in 1927. His ecumenical vision opened Princeton to a wider ecumenical stance and, under his leadership, the seminary prospered as a leading Protestant theological institution. Mackay was a leading ecumenist for much of the twentieth century and helped establish the World Council of Churches. He also founded Theology Today and is recognized as a major figure in both the Presbyterian Church and in theological education. This biography is made all the more compelling by the fact that it was authored by Mackay's grandson, John Metzger, son of the late Princeton Seminary professor, Dr. Bruce M. Metzger.

From the Inside Flap:

"A marvelous tribute to a great Church leader by his grandson. This long-awaited biography of John A. Mackay - missionary, evangelist, ecumenical statesman, and theological educator - speaks eloquently to the present issues of the Church. Current polarities are challenged by Mackay's vision of such dialectical realities as 'dynamic centrality,' 'evangelical catholicity,' 'personal religion,' 'Christo-centrism,' and the 'Balcony and the Road.' A must-read for all who care about the mission of the Church in the twenty-first century." - Thomas G. Gillespie, President and professor of New Testament Emeritus, Princeton Theological Seminary

"The life, mission, and message of the great educationalist John Alexander Mackay should be known by all new generations of Christians: Protestant, Evangelical, Pentecostal, Independent, and Roman Catholic, not only in Latin America but worldwide. The task undertaken by John Mackay Metzger, the fruit of which is seen in this biography, is worthy of the highest praise. The spirituality of the theologian of mission and statesman of the Kingdom is clearly set out as the firm foundation for his intellectual, missionary, and teaching achievements, always within an incarnational framework. We owe the author a debt of gratitude for providing us with this biographical account, so radically Christ-centered and inspiring, of one who forged an ecumenicsm that was biblical, evangelical, and challenging." - Pedro Arana-Quiroz, Presbyterian Minister and Former Executive Director of the Peruvian Bible Society

"Known in the North Atlantic as a seminary president and a leader of the modern ecumenical movement, from first to last John A. Mackay was a missionary to cultures. John Metzger presents a carefully researched and engaging study of an important ecumenical scholar that will initiate fresh discussions about missionary engagement for the twenty-first centruy." - Scott W. Sunquist, Professor of World Christianity, Pittsburgh Theological Seminary, coauthor with Dale T. Irvin, History of the World Christian Movement

"The Hand and the Road
is a meticulous and lovingly produced work of scholarship about the life and thought of a major twentieth-century Christian public intellectual, whose witness and example are very much worth recalling as Christians face the challenges of a new era." - Robert P. George, McCormick Professor of Jurisprudence and Director of the James Madison Program in American Ideals and Institutions, Princeton University

From the Back Cover:

"John Alexander Mackay's influence - simultaneously strongly evangelical and warmly ecumenical - was immense, penetrating huge tracts of Church life, impacting corporate structures and public pronouncements, and affecting congregations. This book chronicles a remarkable life, drawing on the rich resources of Mackay's private writings and other hitherto  unused sources. There is interest in every chapter of the book, and fascination in many." Andrew F. Walls, University of Edinburgh and Liverpool Hope University

"Mackay was a participant in some of the milestone Christian Church events of the twentieth century. Metzger's access to key primary sources allows us to understand not only the highlights of Mackay's career but also the deep spiritual forces that guided it." - Samuel Escobar, President Emeritus, Latin American Theological Fraternity, and Professor Emeritus, Palmer Theological Seminary, Wynnewood, Pennsylvania
