Charles Hodge is one of the earliest members of Princeton Theological Seminary. He joined the school at the recommendation of Archibald Alexander and stayed a professor there for over 50 years. In this sermon he discusses what a good life following Christ looks like by comparing it to a friend who had recently passed away.
