    ... 1812-1868 by David B.Calhoun. This is the first of two volumes. I have owned the books for about 15 years. Now I'm rereading them. They are so encouraging and informative. We need to know our spiritual leaders of the past.

    I had a box of my books sent to me here in South Korea about a month ago. Most of the contents consisted of some of Calvin's commentaries. However, Calhoun's works are especially valuable to me.

    In this first volume I thought I'd just give some info concerning the pastoral charges that a number of the professors had. Some were pastors whle teaching at Princeton Seminary, and others were full-time pastors when they did't teach there.

    Archibald Alexander (1772-1851)
    Itinerant missionary for one year. He had three pastorates for a total of nine years.

    Samuel Miller (1769-1850)
    Associate pastor for eight years. Senior pastor for twelve years. That's twenty years in the ministry.

    Charles Hodge (1797-1878)
    Missionary for one year.

    John Breckinridge (1804-1859)
    He had two charges for 3, and 5 years respectively. That's 8 years in the ministry.

    James W. Alexander (1804-1859)
    He pastored four churches (no,not simultaneously -- these guys weren't Anglicans of several centuries ago). The pastoral lengths were 1,3,5 and 8 respectively for a grand total of 17 years.

    William H. Green (1825-1900)
    He was a pastor of one church for two years.

    Alexander T. McGill (1807-1889)
    He had two churches for seven years total -- 3 years at one and 4 years at the other.

    C.W. Hodge (1830-1891)
    He pastored two churches for 2 and 4 years respectively. That's 6 years for you math deficient folks.
