This book is an introductory guide to the life and works of J. Gresham Machen. The author has accomplished the rare feat of making Machen even more accessible. He has provided an gateway to conservative Presbyterianism most stalwart defender in the tumultuous 1920's. His portrait reminds us of Machen's probing scholarship, his incisive analysis of modernism and his attempts to further the Christian world and life view in Amercian culture. This is the third book in Stephen Nichols's popular 'guided-tour' series and includes 24 illustrations.
