Excerpt from The Princeton Theological Review, 1903, Vol. 1 In the dedication of a volume of sermons to another of his philosopher friends, Basil Montague, he takes occasion to repeat this acknowledgment, confessing himself more beholden to our sage friend, Mr. Coleridge, than to all men besides for the knowl edge of the truth as it is in Jesus.

The story of Princeton Theological Seminary, the Presbyterian Church's first seminary in America, begins in 1812, shortly after the United States had entered into its second war against Great Britain. Princeton went on to become a model of American theological education, setting the standard for subsequent seminaries and other religious higher education institutions. Princeton's story is uniquely intertwined with American religious and cultural history, the history of theological education, the Presbyterian church, and conceptions of ministry in general. Thus, this volume will interest not only those with links to Princeton but also historians of religion, Presbyterians, leaders within seminaries and Christian colleges, and all who are interested in the history of Christian thought in America.
Sermons Preached in the Chapel of Princeton Theological Seminary
Author: Geerhardus Vos
Publisher: ANTHEM PUBLISHING
A profound exploration of key themes in Reformed theology Join students of Princeton Seminary‘s confessional period as they listen to the wisdom of revered Reformed theologian Geerhardus Vos. Through six chapel addresses, Vos covers numerous topics, spanning from philosophy of religion to sanctification, evangelism, the nature of pastoral ministry, and the Christian's attitude toward eschatology. Combining challenging abstract theological concepts with real-world calling, Vos pulls in both the mind and the spirit and joins them into a call for Christian discipleship focused on following Jesus as both Lord and master. Unique to this edition, readers will find Dr. Vos‘s Inaugural Princeton address given when he joined the seminary fulltime in 1894. That address, The Idea of Biblical Theology as a Science and as a Discipline, heavily influenced the methodology and outcomes of Reformed theologians for the next one hundred years. Whether you are interested in Reformed theology or note, Vos‘s work in these pages is required reading to understand the development of Reformed theology in the twentieth century specifically as well as the course of confessional conservative evangelicalism in the United States generally.

Presbyterianism emerged during the sixteenth-century Protestant Reformation. It spread from the British Isles to North America in the early eighteenth century. During the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, Presbyterian denominations grew throughout the world. Today, there are an estimated 35 million Presbyterians in dozens of countries. The Oxford Handbook of Presbyterianism provides a state of the art reference tool written by leading scholars in the fields of religious studies and history. These thirty five articles cover major facets of Presbyterian history, theological beliefs, worship practices, ecclesiastical forms and structures, as well as important ethical, political, and educational issues. Eschewing parochial and sectarian triumphalism, prominent scholars address their particular topics objectively and judiciously.
Articles on key topics in the Gospels from a distinguished Reformed theologian Spanning the full range of theological inquiry, the work of Geerhardus Vos helped Reformed theology navigate the head winds of modernism and maintain both the spiritual fervor and intellectual depth that has characterized its devotees since its inception during the Reformation. In this volume, Vos examines critical questions surrounding the ways in which the gospels present Jesus's messianic identity, the concept of "Logos" in Greek thought and Christianity, and more. The volume also contains numerous book reviews by Vos that show him reacting to the theological scholarship of his own day, including such classics as Albert Schweitzer's revolutionary—but controversial book—The Quest for the Historical Jesus. Essays included: The Ministry of John the Baptist The Kingdom God The Bible Student Our Lord’s Doctrine of The Resurrection The Range of the Logos-Title in the Prologue to the Fourth Gospel The Range of the Logos-Name in the Fourth Gospel (Part 2) Modern Dislike of the Messianic Consciousness in Jesus The Ubiquity of the Messiahship in the Gospels The Messiahship Formal or Essential to the Mind of Jesus? The Name “LORD” as Used of Jesus in the Gospels
This book discusses the concept of the self-convincing authority of Scripture in the historical development of Reformed theology and advocates an emphasis on the autopistia in a postmodern context, because truth and trust are inseparable.
