Chapter thirty-seven studies a rare moment in Hodge’s life when he came under severe criticism from his Presbyterian brethren. Fueled, in part, by national anti-Catholic sentiment, the 1845 General Assembly voted to invalidate Roman Catholic baptism. Hodge severely disagreed with this position, arguing that the Roman Catholic Church was indeed a member of Christ’s visible earthly Church and had the right to baptize its members.
