A volume from the private library of the Reverend John Henry Augustus Bomberger (1817-1890), founder and first President of Ursinus College.
Gess (1819-1891) was a Reformed theologian at both Basel and Gottingen whose views of the Person of Christ were amenable to those of Bomberger. For his part, Bomberger attempted to "balance" Christological emphases upon the Person and the Work of Christ, holding that the Mercersburg theology stressed the Person at the expense of the Work.
Bomberger's handwritten notes on the title page are critical of Reubelt, implying that his additions to the original work were not significant. He also states: "It would have seemed more modest to put Dr. Gess' name in large type and the translators' small. But this is just like Reubelt."
