Hart review Defending the Faith J Gresham Machen and the Crisis of Conservative Protestantism in Modern America J Gresham Machen 1881 1937 writes D G Hart was the scion of a prominent and genteel Balti family who studied at the finest American and European universities and while teaching at Princeton Seminary went on to become one of the United States's leading authorities in New Testament st. This is an excellent biography of an important figure DG Hart deftly contextualizes J Gresham Machen in the intellectual currents and cultural controversies of the early 20th century Machen emerges as a refreshing foil to the standard political and religious tropes of the late 20th century culture wars a brilliant fundamentalist with independent political views and intellectual integrity While one could argue that Hart perhaps reads too much of his own contrarian perspective back into Machen I can forgive him because part of the point I think is to undermine the tendency of other scholars lazily to insert culture wars dynamics into the modernistfundamentalist controversies of the 1920s Machen confounds their cherished whiggish self congratulatory binaries In the process Hart demonstrates rather convincingly that the people and politics of the past are complicated and contradictory than we give them credit for rarely supporting our own categories as much as we like to pretend
