Product Description

My Life and Times is a remarkable book for a number of reasons. First, it has never been reprinted for public distribution and sale. This in itself is astonishing due to the very subject matter—the life of John Bailey Adger. Second, Adger was a prominent ecclesiastical figure in the nineteenth century—a friend to James Henley Thornwell, Benjamin Morgan Palmer and John Lafayette Girardeau, a noteworthy student of the original Princetonians (Alexander, Miller, and Hodge), and a missionary of considerable note…

In My Life and Times Adger relates his life story and in so doing tells of the Adger family’s heritage, his missionary life in Armenia, a southerner’s life during the War Between the States, controversies of the Presbyterian Church in the United States, and the beautiful story of gospel ministry among the slaves in Charleston, South Carolina. There is also a sizable section devoted to Calvin’s Institutes. — C N Willborn, Greer, SC

This edition is enhanced by the addition of a biography of John Adger together with a full bibliography of his writings.
