Westminster Seminary California: A New Old School

W. Robert Godfrey

W. Robert Godfrey and D. G. Hart tell the inspiring story of how one small seminary in the West has made a significant impact in the history ofAmerican religion by seeking to preserve and renew the teachings of the Protestant Reformation in the changing religious world of America (and the world). The seminary that started on a hill in Escondido has emerged as one of the most important voices in the world of Reformed seminaries and churches.

Westminster Seminary California: A New Old School challenges prevailing perceptions of Calvinism and Reformed theology. Readers will learn that the success of Westminster Seminary California (WSC) was never easy. But they will also understand and appreciate that the causes for which the seminary has stood were the same as those that led J. Gresham Machen in 1929 to leave Princeton Theological Seminary in order to establish Westminster Seminary “for Christ, His Gospel, and His Church.”

Robert Godfrey (A.B., Stanford University; M.Div., Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary; Ph.D., Stanford University), an ordained minister in the United Reformed Churches in North America, is the third and current president of Westminster Seminary California (WSC).

Hart (B.A., Temple University; M.A.R., Westminster Theological Seminary; M.T.S., Harvard University; M.A. and Ph.D., Johns Hopkins University), an elder in the Orthodox Presbyterian Church, is an adjunct professor of church history at Westminster Seminary California (WSC) and served as Academic Dean at WSC from 2000- 2003.
