Book Description:

In J. Gresham Machen: A Silhouette, Henry Coray offers perceptive and illuminating glimpses of a warm and personal man. Machen was a brilliant scholar, educator, and author, who stands among the giants of the Christian faith. His scholarly pursuits, literary endeavors, edifying preaching, and earnest contention for the Reformed faith greatly influenced the ecclesiastical world in the early twentieth century, a turbulent world in which the Orthodox Presbyterian Church was born.
