Excerpt from The Princeton Review, Vol. 30: October, 1858
Our author winds up this theological retrospect in the fol lowing terms. By a variety of agencies, the party professing the ancient Calvinism and eschewing 'the improvements' of the New Divinity, has been quite obliterated in New England. Eighty years ago, the followers of President Edwards* among the Calvinistic clergy, were said by his son, the younger Presi dent, to be few in number. At present there are some who are scarcely aware that there ever was a time, since his death, when the Calvinists of New England did not regard President Edwards as the most authoritative expounder of their princi ples. His theology, however, it cannot be denied, had from the beginning the respect of many who refused to adopt the additions proposed by his disciples. It is still a mooted point among the interpreters of his writings, whether he deviated from Calvin in any thing except modes of statement. Pp. 80 - 82.
