Sometimes Even Charles Hodge Was Not Nice

WE are disposed to think there must be, on an average, at least one misrepresentation for every page in this work. As it requires more words to correct a misstatement than to make it, we should be obliged to write a book instead of a review, if we thought it necessary to correct all these errors. We believe they may be safely allowed to work their own cure.

—Charles Hodge, “Review of A Plea for Voluntary Societies and a Defense of the Decisions of the General Assembly of 1836 against the Strictures of the Princeton Review and Others by A Member of the Assembly,” in The Book Reviews of Charles Hodge (Bellingham, WA: Logos Bible Software, 2014).
