The admired Professor Alexander not only helped found Princeton Theological Seminary, but served as its first principal. Alexander, along
with B. B. Warfield and Charles and A. A. Hodge, became known as one of the 'Princeton theologians,' arguably the most influential group
of religious scholars in the history of American Christianity. Reacting against the rise of theological liberalism, they sought to restore
the Bible's reputation as an authoritative text to the world of academic theology. The Evidences of the Christian Religion explores
and defines the right use of reason in dealing with matters of faith. Alexander defends the rationality of miracles, and he declares the
evidence in favor of the Bible's divine origins sufficient to grant it authority.
