Gresham Machen was the Presbyterian giant who taught at Princeton during the time of B. Warfield—another giant. During that era, Protestant Liberalism "ruled the roost" of almost every seminary in America. It was, as usual, presented as "the thinking man's version of Christianity. Machen had gone through the virtual loss of his own Christian faith when doing doctoral work in Germany and had had to cognitively fight his way back. Of course, the same thing goes on for students today.
Henry by Darryl G. Peace by Henry Vaughan — I first read J. At the time Machen looked like an interesting man. The dust cover made it plain that he was a man of theological and personal substance, but I knew nothing more about him. Little did I know what the future held. It was Machen and his work more than anything else that motivated me to go to Westminster and during my first year to join the Orthodox Presbyterian Church.
This classic defense of orthodox Christianity, written to counter the liberalism that arose in the early s, establishes the importance of scriptural doctrine and contrasts the teachings of liberalism and orthodoxy on God and man, the Bible, Christ, salvation, and This classic defense of orthodox Christianity, written to counter the liberalism that arose in the early s, establishes the importance of scriptural doctrine and contrasts the teachings of liberalism and orthodoxy on God and man, the Bible, Christ, salvation, and the church.

Not many books can be just as relevant 90 years later as they were the day they were written. Christianity and Liberalism by J. Gresham Machen is just that. Originally published in , Machen combats liberal theology that crept into the once conservative Princeton Seminary with surgeon-like precision. His main thesis being that liberal Christianity is diametrically opposed to true, biblical Christianity. In Christianity and Liberalism, Machen, who co-founded Westminster Theological Seminary, dissects liberal views of doctrine, God and man, the Bible, Christ, salvation, and the church. In doing so, he destroys liberal thought with Scripture and logic while calling all men to true faith in the Savior and biblical faithfulness.

In the sphere of religion, in particular, the present time is a time of conflict; the great redemptive religion which has always been known as Christianity is battling against a totally diverse type of religious belief, which is only the more destructive of the Christian faith because it makes use of traditional Christian terminology. At the time that J. Gresham Machen wrote his groundbreaking book, Christianity and Liberalism , many people had foggy ideas about the nature of Christianity. On the surface, it seemed that liberalism offered merely one more variation on the general theme of Christianity.
