    The header is the name of the first of two books about Princeton Seminary by David B. Calhoun.

    I bought both of his volumes around two decades ago. This first one was published in 1994 by Banner of Truth Trust.

    I am indeed a Baptist. However, I think there should be a department on this board which can devote itself to Church History --not only Baptist History.

    This book deals with Presbyterianism --we're talking of Princeton after all.

    Calhoun's first book deals with ten of its earliest professors.

    I will list the names of each and the time period(s) in which they served that institution. Also, I will give information about their pastoral periods. Their time as pastor was rarely at just one church.

    Archibald Alexander (1812-1851)
    He pastored three churches totaling nine years. He was an itinerant missionary for a time.

    Samuel Miller (1813-1849). One charge lasted eight years as an associate pastor. The other one lasted twelve years.

    Charles Hodge (1820-1878). He wasn't a pastor, yet he did preach in various churches before and after ordination for a year or so. He was also deemed a missionary. Preaching was not his forte.

    William H. Green (1846-1849 and 1851-1900). He was stated supply for two years. He was a pastor for two years at another church.

    James W. Alexander (1849-1851). He pastored at three churches totaling 15 years.

    Joseph A. Alexander (1838-1860) He preached at two churches in Philly --six moths each.

    C. W. Hodge (1860-1891). He was pastor of two churches for a total of six years.



    John Breckinridge (1836-1838). He had two pastorates lasting eight years total.

    William T. Mcgill (1854-1883). Two pastorates totaling seven years.

    James C. Moffat. (1861-1888). Though born in Scotland (home of some of the best preachers, he did not pastor or preach.
