Dating originally from the early nineteenth century, Hodge's thorough and comprehensive Introduction (in four volumes) went through twelve editions and rapidly became a set textbook at Princeton.

I know you mean his Introduction to Systematic Theology (isn't it three volumes?), but it would generally be helpful to have fuller citation info, and further details about the preferred edition(s), if multiple ones exist. It's not always the case that the last edition is the most desirable one!

We also need to know whether and where an etext is available. However, in this case, how is this different from the Hodge Systematic Theology that we have on the Library 6?

Sorry, my mistake. I meant Horne, not Hodge. Thomas Hartwell Horne, An Introduction to the Critical Study and Knowledge of the Holy Scriptures.

(Got Hodge on the brainóreading his Princeton Sermons) :)

As with all such suggestions, please let us know where we can get an etext or permission to publish, or at least full information on its publication. Then we also need to see interest from a number of users before we embark on the lengthy process of adding the title to Accordance.

Originally published 1818, and running to 12 editions (12th edition 1868). Republished in 1970 by Baker (ISBN 0801040035) but is in the public domain (I have an email from Baker to confirm that).

Thanks!
