Process and providence; the evolution question at Princeton, 1845-1929.


Process and providence; the evolution question at Princeton, 1845-1929.

Gundlach, Bradley J.

W.B. Eerdmans


374 pages



Charles Hodges, James McCosh, and B. B. Warfield, three great minds in education who all served at Princeton around the era from 1845 to 1929, each had a sort of hidden agenda; each was a rock-ribbed Protestant and each was rabidly opposed to the teaching of evolution. Yet most Princeton scholars, alumni and students did not reject evolution outright. Gundlach (history, Trinity International U.) examines the years of controversy, which ultimately ended in the Scopes Trial, and the aftermath, which included some of the formerly proud sons of Princeton turning their back on their former alma mater.
