With command of the scholarship, the writer probes the perspectives of Hodge and Nevin at the Lord's Supper/Eucharist and their underpinnings within the doctrines of Incarnation and Atonement . . . rightly attractive for what's known as this present day, 'mutual confirmation and mutual admonition.'"
--Gabriel Fackre, Andover Newton Theological School
"Charles Hodge at Princeton Seminary and John Williamson Nevin at Mercersburg Seminary in Pennsylvania drew the rapt consciousness of 19th century Reformed theologians once they battled with one another over the inner most subject matters of Christian idea, from sacraments and the Incarnation and to heritage and redemption . . . it is a revealing, short advent to an issue that has persisted to awaken curiosity and generate observation nearly centuries after the 2 theologians started their exchange."
--E. Brooks Holifield, Emory University
"Happily, there's renewed curiosity within the theology and value of the Supper in Reformed circles this present day. a few of the related tensions in modern discussions replicate deeper concerns that experience regularly generated diversified sacramental perspectives. With readability matched by means of scholarship, Bonomo places those matters in sharp concentration through focusing on a severe debate in American Calvinism. For historians in addition to theologians and pastors, this can be crucial reading."
--Michael Horton, Westminster Seminary, California
"Arguments approximately sacramental theology are by no means easily disputes approximately sacramental theology, yet are constantly additionally approximately production and Christology, time and metaphysics, anthropology and theological procedure. Jonathan Bonomo's balanced, transparent, and insightful examine of the intramural dispute among Charles Hodge and John Williamson Nevin has the nice advantage of highlighting the conflict of opposing visions and models of Reformed theology and perform that lay on the center in their debate in regards to the genuine presence and the incarnation."
