Abstract:

This book is a biography of the public life (his personal and family life is left relatively untouched) of Alexander from his earliest years through his final career as founder and shaper of Princeton Theological Seminary. This is the only lengthy and satisfactory treatment of Alexander; it is based on wide use of primary sources as well as of secondary works. And the book throws light not only on Alexander and his seminary but also on East Coast Protestant seminaries in general during the antebellum period. Copious endnotes, a fine bibliography, and an index round out this book. - Publisher.
