Jonathan Edwards (1703-58) is widely recognized as Americas 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 Edwardss life and thought, pitched at the level of the educated general reader. Each chapter serves as a general introduction to one of Edwardss major topics, including revival, the Bible, beauty, literature, philosophy, typology, and even world religions. Each is written by a leading expert on Edwardss work. The book will serve as an ideal first encounter with the thought of Americas theologian.
