Show Summary Details


Chapter Four explores the early education and character formation of Charles Hodge. Hodge’s mother was indefatigable in her efforts to educate her sons, and she took a great personal interest in their daily activities even when she sent them away to School in Somerville, New Jersey. The roots to Hodge’s lifelong dedication to duty, systemization and service are rooted in both his early religious and secular educational experiences.
