Description

Jonathan Edwards (1703-58) is widely recognized as America's greatest religious mind. A torrent of books, articles, and dissertations on Edwards have been released since 1949, the year that Perry Miller published the intellectual biography that launched the modern explosion of Edwards studies. This collection offers an introduction to Edwards's life and thought, pitched at the level of the educated general reader. Each chapter serves as a general introduction to one of Edwards's major topics, including revival, the Bible, beauty, literature, philosophy, typology, and even world religions. Each is written by a leading expert on Edwards's work. The book will serve as an ideal first encounter with the thought of "America's theologian."show more

Review quote

McDermott did an excellent job creating...a volume for beginners mapping various themes and issues so that people can take a first step into Edwards studies. Those teaching classes on Edwards will no doubt be grateful, and those looking for an introduction to Edwards' ideas will find a helpful roadmap. * Kyle Strobel, Themelios *show more
