Comments

A volume from the private library of the Reverend John Henry Augustus Bomberger (1817-1890), founder and first President of Ursinus College.

Bomberger largely concurred with and often quoted Charles Hodge's stinging critique of John Williamson Nevin's Mercersburg views. Such a critique was particularly pointed, since Nevin had at one time been both a student of, and a substitute teacher for Hodge at Princeton.

On page 123 is printed the following excerpt of a letter from Bomberger:

"Ursinus College,

Freeland, PA., April 9, 1872.

My Dear Sir, -

Permit me, however, to add that although compelled to yield to hindering circumstances, our warmest sympathies are with you and the richly merited token of regard to be presented to one whom the Lord has raised up to be one of the ablest expounders of evangelical theology, and one of the most learned and faithful defenders of Gospel truth against the artful opposition of modern foes - a man whose name and works will rank with those of the most honored worthies of past ages.

Begging you to convey to Dr. Hodge assurances of our profound esteem,

Sincerely yours,

J. H. A. Bomberger"
