In his years at Princeton, 1886–1921, B. B. Warfield was unquestionably the best-known opponent of the rationalism and anti-supernaturalism which threatened the life of the Church in the 20th Century; for him a non-miraculous Christianity was no Christianity at all. But with his breadth of vision Warfield also saw the danger of false claims to the possession of miraculous gifts – claims which have repeatedly been made both by the Church of Rome and by groups within Protestantism.
