Chapter twenty is an account of how Hodge returned from Europe a changed man. Full of confidence and new ideas, Hodge gave himself to educational reform and missions in the years immediately after his return. He had already been involved in missions through Princeton Seminary’s Society of Inquiry, and by the 1840s he was favoring the establishment of Presbyterian parochial schools.
