Chapter fifty-seven looks at Hodge’s last days. As he finished What is Darwinism?, the trustees of the Seminary began discussing who might replace Hodge. The answer was his son, Archibald Alexander Hodge, who joined the Seminary’s faculty in 1877. Archie and his father co-taught Hodge’s classes in his final year. He gave several conference talks near the end of his life concentrating on the path one needed to follow to get to heaven. Hodge’s last public act was giving the prayer of his long-time friend, Joseph Henry. A few weeks later, he died, widely eulogized as one of America’s greatest theologians.
