J. Gresham Machen

John Gresham Machen (1881-1937) was one of the most significant figures in
the evangelical church throughout the twentieth century. He is best known
through his vision for a truly evangelical presbyterian church in the USA, and
as the founder of Westminster Theological Seminary, Pennsylvania.
Gifted with an incisive mind which was finely tuned to the highest level of
scholarship, he placed above all else his concern for Christ's gospel and the
reliability of the Scriptures. For these he was prepared to suffer opposition,
abuse, and even rejection.
In the Philadelphia seminary, Machen gathered around him a team of men,
including Cornelius Van Til, Paul Woolley, John Murray, and Ned Stonehouse,
whose work took on international significance, and brought guidance to
Christian scholarship and wisdom to the entire Christian church.
Machen laid everything he possessed in tribute at the feet of Christ. He was,
so to speak, a rich, young ruler in the church of God who sold all to follow
his Master. He was deeply concerned to bring his warmhearted and accurate
exposition of the gospel to the entire church. Such works of his as God
Transcendent, The Christian View of Man, and An Introduction to the New
Testament, have put many readers in his debt.
