Humble greatness: the life of B B Warfield

150 years ago on November 5 one of the English-speaking world's greatest theologians was born near the town of Lexington, Kentucky, in the USA.

Graham Heaps

He was Benjamin Breckinridge Warfield. Today his name is indissolubly linked with that of Princeton Seminary at which he taught theology for more than three decades. There is something rather appropriate about the fact that Warfield was born on Guy Fawkes Day, for in the last 30 or more years he has often been attacked and vilified, even by confessing evangelicals, for his insistence that the Bible is the infallible and inerrant word of God.
