Jonathan Edwards (1703-1758) became the pastor of the church of Northampton, Massachusetts, in 1724. His powerful preaching launched the Great Awakening. He is best known for contributing a vast body of writings to the evangelical community on not only theological issues, many of which still challenge scholars, but also metaphysics, ethics, and psychology. His influence is felt today through his published works and godly example. Considered one of America's greatest theologians, Jonathan Edwards is well defined in this biography. Now in this book, author Stephen J. Nichols tells a clear and comprehensive narrative of his life in relation to his works.

Jonathan Edwards, a leader in the Great Awakening during the eighteenth century, still has much to teach the church. Evangelicals are rediscovering him through the efforts of several authors (John Gerstner, Iain Murray, Harry Stout, and others) and publishers (Banner of Truth, Soli Deo Gloria, and Crossway). Stephen Nichols offers Jonathan Edwards "as an introduction, a gateway into the vast and rewarding life, thought, and writings of Jonathan Edwards." He intends it for anyone who wants to read Edwards but who needs a little help.
