The Coming Storm
Chapter twenty-six centers on the growing conflict between Old and New School Presbyterians. These differences centered on theology, revivalism and the denomination’s relationship to voluntary societies. Charles Finney played an important role in the revivalism debates, and Hodge sought to circumscribe the power voluntary societies played in relationship to Presbyterian autonomy.
