Chapter thirty-two explores the Didactic Theology lectures Hodge offered from the mid-1840s through the early 1870s. Hodge based these lectures on the doctrinal teachings found in the Westminster Confession. He paid great attention to the sacramental tradition of the Roman Catholics and Lutherans, and argued a hard line that the sacraments did not hold innate power, but were made effective by the faith of those who partook of them.
