About the Author:

D. G. Hart studied American history at the Johns Hopkins University and has served as Director of the Institute for the Study of American Evangelicals at Wheaton College and Academic Dean and Professor of Church History at Westminster Seminary in California. He is currently Visiting Professor of History at Hillsdale College.

His books include Defending the Faith: J. Gresham Machen and the Crisis of Conservative Protestantism (1994); The Lost Soul of American Protestantism (2002); With Reverence and Awe: Returning to the Basics of Reformed Worship (2002); John Williamson Nevin: High Church Calvinist (2005); and A Secular Faith: Why Christianity Favors the Separation of Church and State (2006).

Review:

"Defending the Faith reads with the passion and pathos of historical reconstruction at its best. Hart is a gifted writer, and his subject is a fascinating individual." --R. Albert Mohler, Jr.

"A readable and compelling narrative. . . . Machen remains worth hearing, and Hart succeeds admirably at making him audible." --Allen C. Guelzo

"A challenging, informative, and nonprejudicial look at the most ‘highbrow’ of the fundamentalists, J. Gresham Machen. . . . For a scholarly book that will provide edifying challenges and enough food for thought to support a hibernation, read Defending the Faith." --Thomas J. Nettles

Book Description P R Publishing, United Kingdom, 2003. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. J. Gresham Machen (1881-1937), writes D. G. Hart, was the scion of a prominent and genteel Baltimore family, who studied at the finest American and European universities and, while teaching at Princeton Seminary, went on to become one of the United States s leading authorities in New Testament studies. Defending the Faith explains how a privileged and learned Protestant became embroiled in the religious disputes of the 1920s, writes Hart. This study, he continues, has much to tell us not just about the issues that unsettled--some would say unseated--mainstream Protestantism s hold on American intellectual and cultural life. But it also offers a distinctive and revealing perspective on the way we have come to assess and locate religion, science, and modernity in the early twentieth century. This biography, the first of Machen since 1955, originally appeared in 1994. Bookseller Inventory # AA79780875525631
