J. Gresham Machen: A Biographical Memoir


Stonehouse, Ned B. Used paperback in very good condition. Like new except for most minor wear to exterior, previous owner’s stamp on first front end page, and a few pages improperly cut from the printer.

Out of stock


A monument to the great leader of the modern evangelical movement and the author of many classical works of apologetics, this definitive biography of J. Gresham Machen by his intimate friend, associate and successor, is based upon a vast amount of letters, memoranda and other documents (filling nearly thirty drawers in the Machen files) in addition to the author’s personal reminiscences, and an evaluation of Machen’s published writings. An intimate and personal account which leaves no aspect of Machen’s full and brilliant life untouched. Ned B. Stonehouse’s full-scale portrait is a vivid and inspiring picture of a Christian of apostolic ardor who, at his untimely death in 1937, was called ” the first Protestant in the nation.” Acknowledged by his critics and admirers alike as the greatest leader of the whole cause of evangelical Christianity in modern times, Machen raised the intellectual acuteness of Protestant orthodoxy to a point where observers such as H. L. Mencken and Walter Lippmann claimed that in the religious debates of the twenties and thirties, the liberals had yet to answer him.
