This 2-volume set by David Calhoun is an excellent introduction to Princeton Seminary and American Presbyterian history. The set begins with the Jonathan Edwards era, and ends with the demise of the orthodox stance of Princeton Seminary (and the subsequent beginnings of Westminster Seminary) in the tumultuous 1930's. Easy to read, very informative, highly recommended!

So far, I am loving this book! It is both an excellent book using critical historical methods, yet features great profiles of some of America's greatest theologians that make you pant for the glory of God. A nice element so far in this account, is the emphasis on the importance of preaching in the local congregation. Not done, but I cannot wait to finish this book.

An outstanding and incredibly inspiring book about Princeton Seminary from the days when its faculty and students believed the Bible. Very well written!

A bit dry, but an excellent history of Princeton Seminary. It reads like a history of Presbyterianism in America because Princeton was such a central figure.
