Chapter forty tells of one of the most grief-stricken periods of Hodge’s life. Hodge had been fortunate to have not lost a wife or child for nearly fifty years of his life. Within a period of six years, however, he lost a good friend (Albert Dod), a nephew, his wife Sarah, and the three men who had been most important in founding and forming Princeton Theological Seminary: Ashbel Green, Archibald Alexander, and Samuel Miller. He now stood alone as the institution’s most senior colleague and institutional leader.
