The American theologian Albert Barnes (1798-1870) graduated from Hamilton College, Clinton, New York, in 1820, and from Princeton Theological Seminary in 1823 and was ordained as a Presbyterian minister. He pastored churches in New Jersey and Philadelphia. While he was an eloquent preacher, today his reputation rests chiefly on his expository works. The popularity of his works stems from his ability to simplify biblical criticism so that it was accessible and understandable to the general public.
