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.

Excerpt


The chapters of this book were originally delivered as papers at a symposium on the life and teaching of John Owen at the John Owen Centre for Theological Study in London. Owen's life from 1616 until 1683 spans one of the most momentous epochs in the history of Britain. How should we assess this man of so many talents, once a country pastor, an army chaplain, head of an Oxford college and vice-chancellor before becoming a leader among the persecuted Nonconformists? Beginning with an overview of his life and times, the contributors consider various aspects of John Owen's theology and the significance of his work for his own day and for ours. Contributor Carl R. Trueman states, "I do wish to commend Owen to students, ministers, and thoughtful Christians in general, as a good example of how theology can be done in a serious and profound manner."

Puritans in the New World: A Critical AnthologyPuritans in the New World: A Critical Anthology

This book tells the story of the powerful yet turbulent culture of the English people who embarked on an "errand into the wilderness." It presents the Puritans in their own words, shedding light on the lives both of great dissenters, such as Roger Williams and Anne Hutchinson, and of the orthodox leaders who contended against them. Classics of Puritan expression, like Mary Rowlandson's captivity narrative, Anne Bradstreet's poetry, and William Bradford's Of Plymouth Plantation appear alongside texts that are less well known but no less important: confessions of religious experience by lay people, the "diabolical" possession of a young woman, and the testimony of Native Americans who accept Christianity. Hall's chapter introductions provide a running history of Puritanism in seventeenth-century New England and alert readers to important scholarship. Above all, this is a collection of texts that vividly illuminates the experience of being a Puritan in the New World. This book will be welcomed by all those who are interested in early American literature, religion, and history.
