Description

Jonathan Edwards is a towering figure in American history. A controversial theologian and the author of the famous sermon Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God, he ignited the momentous Great Awakening of the 18th century.

In this definitive and long-awaited biography, Jonathan Edwards emerges as both a great American and a brilliant Christian. George Marsden evokes the world of colonial New England in which Edwards was reared - a frontier civilization at the center of a conflict between Native Americans, French Catholics, and English Protestants. Drawing on newly available sources, Marsden demonstrates how these cultural and religious battles shaped Edwards' life and thought. Marsden reveals Edwards as a complex thinker and human being who struggled to reconcile his Puritan heritage with the secular, modern world emerging out of the Enlightenment. In this, Edwards' life anticipated the deep contradictions of our American culture.

Meticulously researched and beautifully composed, this biography offers a compelling portrait of an eminent American.

comprehensive

great work tying most of Evangelical Christianity to Edwards. A genius, a writer, but ultimately he was a pastor.

Great Book. Narrator, Not So Much.

The book itself is wonderful. The narrator was not for me. I've listened to other performances of his and have enjoyed them. So maybe he wasn't feeling this book either. I would like someone like Grover Gardner gets a chance to do this over.
