‘The Princeton Sermons of Charles Hodge, one of the greatest Christian teachers of the 19th century, are only outlines; but what outlines! They form almost a complete systematic theology, and are extraordinarily suggestive and satisfying. Preachers who would teach, and Christians who would learn, will enjoy this book, though it will not yield much to lazy minds.’ — J.I. PACKER

‘This is not a book to be read through at a sitting or digested in a hurry. It is rather a book of reference to be resorted to for help in choosing, grasping and treating themes for preaching and teaching. It has very much to offer those who will thus use it.’ — A.M. STIBBS (in English Churchman)

‘These pages are filled with nearly 250 excellent sermon outlines. These are full enough to give one the feel of the original discourses. Reading and thinking over one per day would be a rewarding exercise … For the Christian who wishes to be informed widely on the truths of his religion, this book could be a home-study course taught by a “master in Israel.”‘ — FREE PRESBYTERIAN MAGAZINE‘A veritable gold mine of truth, offering Hodge’s mature thought on the great themes of the Bible as they relate to the practical concerns of the Christian and of the pastor … Here you will find not only the thoughts of a great Christian, but will also recognize his personal devotion to the Saviour and to His infallible and inerrant Word.’ — THE PRESBYTERIAN JOURNAL

‘These immensely full “outlines” are … characterized by a remarkable power of perception and by facility and aptitude of expression. They reflect the sound scholarship and the wide and exact classical and contemporary knowledge of the preacher.’ — QUEENSLAND BAPTIST

Book Description

Charles Hodge (1797-1878)was for over fifty years a Professor at Princeton Seminary during years when it was at the height of its spiritual greatness. This book contains the outlines of addresses given by him to the students on Sabbath afternoons, when they gathered in the Oratory ‘for prayer and conference on themes relating to the life of God in the soul, and to the practical duties having their root therein.’

‘These offer Hodge’s mature thought on a great many subjects,’ wrote Professor John Murray, ‘and they breathe the warmth of devotional fervour. Here is a fund of succinct definition on the great themes of theology as they are related to the most practical concerns of the Christian and of the pastor … When these outlines are studiously and meditatively used they will prove for the reader to be the means of cultivating that intelligent piety of which the Seminary at Princeton was the nursery… The masterful survey provided by this volume is calculated to rehabilitate in the thinking and practice of the present day those very patterns which are largely lost and which are our clamant need. May it be that by God’s grace this may be the fruit.’
