*UPDATED* The update from version 1 to version 2 is a major one. Spacing has been corrected for all but two of the works (History of Israelitish Nation and Practical Truths). Countless punctuation corrections have been made (uppercase letters). Countless instances of emboldening where appropriate (titles, headings, etc.) have been made. In all, literally thousands of formatting corrections have been made. It is highly unlikely I will get back to working on this module for some time. I must move on to other modules. May God use these works for His glory!

"A member of a long line of the great Princeton theologians which includes Jonathan Edwards, B.B. Warfield, and Charles Hodge, Archibald Alexander was a dominating and highly influential Presbyterian theologian, and the founding principal of Princeton Theological Seminary. He wrote and preached extensively on theological topics, missions, and biblical authority, and—more than any other during his time—appropriated and defined Calvinism in the unique context of America.

The Archibald Alexander Collection contains twenty volumes of works on biblical studies and theology. This collection includes Alexander’s important writings on biblical authority—the first works in Princeton theology to defend biblical inspiration against the claims of higher critics—a project greatly expanded by his successors Charles Hodge and B.B. Warfield. The Archibald Alexander Collection also includes Alexander’s works on religious experience, church education, and his two massive volumes on the history of Israel. This collection also contains numerous sermons, lectures, and other addresses, including his address delivered at his own inauguration as professor of theology at Princeton." - Logos Product Description
