Joseph Addison Alexander of Princeton was born in 1809, just three years before his father, Archibald Alexander, was appointed the first Professor of the newly–founded Princeton Theological Seminary. By 1830 Jospeh Alexander himself was Adjunct Professor of Ancient Languages and Literature in the College of New Jersey (now Princeton University). Four years later he was at the Seminary as assistant to Charles Hodge. By the time of his early death in 1859 he had served various posts in the Princeton Seminary and had seen his great commentaries published. Allan Harman brings this almost forgotten character back to life with a stirring biography that is a great addition to this series.
