WARFIELD, Benjamin Breckinridge


WARFIELD, Benjamin Breckinridge
(1851-1921)
   American PRESBYTERIAN scholar and professor of THEOLOGY at Princeton Theological Seminary. A committed CALVINIST, and best remembered for his impact on both EVANGELICAL and FUNDAMENTALIST movements through his arguments about the inerrancy of SCRIPTURE found in Revelation and Inspiration of the Bible (1927). Another influential work is his case against the Biblical AUTHENTICITY of the CHARISMATIC and PENTECOSTAL movement in Counterfeit Miracles (1918) which argues that CHARISMATA ceased with the death of the APOSTLES.
