Product Description

Long recognized as 'America's theologian', Jonathan Edwards (1703-1758) was instrumental in the Great Awakenings of the 18th Century that gripped much of New England and that laid the groundwork for a uniquely American Protestant religious identity.

The Cambridge Companion to Jonathan Edwards offers a general, comprehensive introduction to Jonathan Edwards examining his life and works from various disciplinary perspectives including history, literature, theology, religious studies, and philosophy.

The CC to Jonathan Edwards is comprised of seventeen chapters/essays and divided into 3 major sections that cover Edwards' life and context, Edwards' various roles (theologian, preacher, etc.), and lastly his enduring but often controversial legacy.

Each of the 17 chapter-essays is written by a leading Edwards' scholars, many of whom are ground-breaking specialists in this quickly emerging and important field.
