Scope and Contents

Born in Chatham, Virginia, during the time of the Civil War, Archibald Thomas Robertson (1863-1934) grew up on the small farm in Statesville, North Carolina, purchased by his family after the war. He was baptized in 1876 in the Baptist church founded the year before by Rev. J.B. Boone and Rev. A.C. Dixon. He attended Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky from 1885 -1888 where he excelled at Greek and taught the beginning course in his final year. During seminary days he also worked in an inner-city mission, supplied in various pulpits, and learned much about evangelism during a D.L. Moody crusade. In 1892 Robertson was appointed professor at Southern Baptist and remained in that post until his death in 1934.
Robertson helped found the Baptist World Alliance in 1900. He was an important Southern Baptist and a well-respected scholar in his day. In all, he published forty-five books, several of which are still in print today. Two that are still consulted are his Word Pictures in the New Testament and his landmark volume A Grammar of the Greek New Testament in Light of Historical Research. As the son-in-law of famous preacher John Broadus (Robertson’s grave lies in the shadow of Broadus), Robertson sought to equip his students with the proper tools for good preaching. Microfiche 1-351.
