"One of the great achievements of Hart's biography is his contextualization of Machen, in which these anomalies resolve themselves into a coherent if not always attractive personality... What makes Hart's achievement remarkable is the skill with which he has synthesized these interpretive pieces into a readable and compelling narrative."--Allen C. Guelzo, "Christianity Today."

"Hart's portrait of Machen provides a novel perspective that merits the attention of those interested not just in fundamentalism but in the place of faith in modern America."--Bradley J. Longfield, "Christian Century."
