"A Scribe Well-Trained" acquaints us with the life and writings of Princeton Theological Seminary's founding professor, Archibald Alexander (1772-1851). In the opening biographical sketch, James M. Garretson introduces us to the things that influenced Alexander and how he sought to cultivate godliness in himself, the men he trained, and people to whom he ministered. Garretson reinforces this through fifty-six short excerpts from across the published writings of Alexander, allowing us to experience firsthand the richness of "Old Princeton" spirituality.
