According to the “orthodox” consensus, the Presbyterian professors at Old Princeton Seminary (1812–1929), influenced by Common Sense Realism and Baconianism, betrayed traditional Reformed theology by their alleged claim that human reason was in certain significant ways unaffected by the fall.
Through a masterful examination of the Old Princetonians’s writings, Paul Helseth’s unorthodox proposal turns the orthodox interpretation on its head, showing what Alexander, Hodge, Warfield, and others actually believed regarding reason’s powers and the way theology should be constructed.
