Description

Gutjahr blames Hodge’s extensive study of Paul and his patriarchal mentors for his own view that men are superior to women.

Unique among systematic theologies, the last two volumes are almost entirely devoted to sanctification, covering topics like contentment, self-denial, patience, and prayer. Hodge's inductive method betrays certain tell-tale marks of its time, though this alone is hardly an argument against it. Biblical Theology is not, then, a rival of Systematics; it is not even a parallel product of the same body of facts, provided by exegesis; it is the basis and source of Systematics. Dogmatic Theology is, when rightly cultivated, as truly a Biblical and as truly an inductive science as its younger sister.For anything pretending to supplant Dogmatics there is no place in the circle of Christian Theology…. It’s hard to overstate the influence Turretin has had on the development and transmission of Reformed theology. The impression that Bavinck conveys of Hodge is that he thinks that Scripture simply consists of a set of facts, which the theologian then provides an interpretation for these, the interpretation coming from the hypothesis that the facts suggest or indicate. As Hodge proceeds to show, collecting together the facts of Scripture is not like collecting pebbles from a beach and sorting them.

Additional publications on the relationship between Christianity and science, and a collection of essays delivered at the Sabbath Afternoon Conferences (published by the Trust as Princeton Sermons), served to further confirm the breadth of his academic competency and the depth of his Christian piety.So besides facts, Scripture, especially the Pauline epistles, also provides us with portions of systematic theology.

Secondly the inferences drawn from such data are not mere generalisations drawn from the experiences of natural regularities in the world, but arise from data that have meaning.p.27 emphasis added) As Hodge proceeds to show, collecting together the facts of Scripture is not like collecting pebbles from a beach and sorting them. For example, he might well have endorsed the view that every doctrinal hypthesis must be falsifiable by Scriptural data. Unfortunately, Professor Vanhoozer's negative comments about Charles Hodge's systematic theological method are not novel.
