Excerpt


Jonathan Edwards led a rich intellectual and spiritual life that went far beyond the more well known fire-and-brimestone sermons he delivered in colonial America. In this biography, Edwards' life is carefully detailed from observing God's handiwork from his childhood through his adolescent struggles with faith. Marsden, a highly regarded American church historian, discusses Edwards' powerful preaching in the revivals that dominated the Connecticut Valley in the First Great Awakening and beyond and evaluates Edwards' successful mission to the Indians.

Garnering an amazing amount of notariety, Jomathan Edwards: A Life was a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award in the biography category for books published in 2003; winner of the 2001-2003 Annibel Jenkins Biography Prize sponsored by the Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies; winner of the 2004 Bancroft Prize sponsored by Columbia University; winner of the 2004 Merle Curti Award in intellectual history given by the Organization of American Historians; won the 2004 John C.

In this major contribution to the study of one of America's best-known and most-imposing religious figures, fifteen scholars offer a sustained analysis of Jonathan Edwards's historical legacy throughout the world. The first collection of essays to focus primarily on Edwards's lasting influence, Jonathan Edwards at Home and Abroad is also the only volume to date to focus on the enduring effects of his writings worldwide. This collection moves the discussion beyond the borders of the United States and considers Edwards's impact on the larger world.

Although Edwards's corpus and personality have received considerable scholarly attention in the United States, the contributors recognize that attention to the continuing significance of his life and ministry in this country and elsewhere lags behind. These scholars examine the reach of Edwards's writings, his roles as a clerical and intellectual exemplar, his influence outside the world of religion, and the appropriation and reappropriation of his remarkably resilient cultural authority. They trace the convergence of these developments into discernible intellectual and ecclesiastical movements.

In surveying Edwards's domestic influence, the contributors illustrate how his life and American legacy continue to generate innovative scholarship that has moved beyond intellectual history. They bring into clear view Edwards's influence on discussions of sex, property rights, the salvation of children, and the status of African Americans in nineteenth-century America. In taking the measure of Edwards's global impact, the contributors open new territory in Edwards studies and map a direction for further inquiry. They look into Edwards's influence on theological developments in England and Scotland, on the burgeoning missionary movement in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, and on people throughout the world who have encountered his writings. Their conclusion is that Edwards's legacy is momentous, abroad as well as at home.

Jonathan Edwards lived in an America that was a new world full of adventure and opportunity. Battles and Tomahawks were just some of the thrilling adventures that his family lived through. But Jonathan also loved the small things in life too. In an age of scientific discovery, Edwards saw God's beauty displayed most perfectly through nature. His journals are filled with drawings of plants, animals, and spiders because he knew that each one of them reflected the creativity of its Creator.

His mind was full of questions and he grappled for the answers. Intellectually there were few to beat him. However it wasn't just his amazing intelligence that set him apart from other boys his age--he may have had a thirst for knowledge but he also had a strong desire for the things of God. His genius and abilities teamed up well with his faith and love for the Lord Jesus Christ. Recommended for ages 8 to 14.

He was also a catalyst for the first Great Awakening, graduated from Harvard University, and later became the president of the college of New Jersey (Princeton).

It this timely, witty, and informative look at Edwards, James Byrd reveals Edwards life and ministry, but also probes more deeply into Edwards theology and explores its themes, and unique contributions to Reformed theology and Christianity in America.

Jonathan Edwards could arguably be called America's greatest theologian. His ministry in eighteenth-century New England was one of the chief means that the Spirit of God used to spark revivals in Northampton and the surrounding area---and eventually what is known as the Great Awakening. These sweeping revivals brought many souls to Christ and Edwards' ongoing ministry and extensive writings continued to have an impact on many others, both in America and throughout Europe.

Edwards wrote prolifically on many topics, from theology to creation and philosophy, but it is his writings on the Holy Spirit and revival that are some of his finest and most insightful. Responding to excesses and criticism during his own day, Edwards wrote very poignantly about both the reality and scope of the Spirit's work---something he had seen first-hand---and also the dangers associated with times of genuine revival.

Michael Haykin's study of Jonathan Edwards is interwoven with an acute understanding of both the primary texts---such as Edwards' landmark study of Christian spirituality, The Religious Affections---and the historical context. Drawing on both of these, he presents a detailed analysis of the shape and content of Edwards' theology, including an examination of his wife's experience of revival and his daughter's reflections on it. Jonathan Edwards had a heart devoted to the pursuit of the glory of God and this volume reflects something of that passion.

Excerpt


On July 8, 1741, Jonathan Edwards preached the most famous sermon ever delivered in the history of America. The response of the congregation was nothing short of amazing. Before Edwards could finish, people were crying out, "What shall I do to be saved?" Though first delivered 250 years ago, Edwards's most memorable sermon is no less needed today. Far more than a depiction of the punishments of hell, it is a call to personal salvation through Christ and spiritual revival in our time.

Throughout his ministerial career, Jonathan Edwards filled a series of private notebooks with writings on a wide variety of theological topics, numbering his entries-some 1,400 of them-in sequence. This book, the second of four volumes devoted to these "Miscellanies," contains entries written during the decade of the 1730s, from July 1731 to approximately January 1740, the eve of the Great Awakening. They record the development of Edwards' thought as he first emerged as a public spokesperson for orthodox Calvinism, assumed a leadership role in colonial New England church politics, and acquired an international reputation as an evangelist for his role in the revivals in the Connecticut River Valley of 1734 and 1735.Edwards used the "Miscellanies" as a repository for ideas that he intended to develop in future sermons and treatises, and these entries contain the seeds of such contemporaneous works as Justification by Faith Alone and The History of the Work of Redemption. These entries also record how the Connecticut Valley revivals influenced Edwards' thoughts on such important theological topics as the significance of perseverance, the nature of spiritual knowledge, justification by faith alone, the rationality of the Christian religion, the history of the work of redemption, and conversion and the religious life.

Excerpt


While completing his preparation for the ministry, Jonathan Edwards (1703-1758) wrote seventy resolutions that guided him throughout his life. About twenty years later he wrote a letter to young Deborah Hatheway, a new convert in a nearby town, advising her concerning the Christian life. These two writings, often reprinted during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, overflow with straight forward and biblically sound advice. This advice is as current today as it was in the 1700s, and it far surpasses the "how to" books now overrunning bookstores. If your knowledge of Edwards does not extend beyond his sermon "Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God," you owe it to yourself to read Jonathan' Edward's Resolutions: And Advice to Young Converts.
