Book Description:

In this definitive and long-awaited biography, Jonathan Edwards emerges as both a great American and a brilliant Christian. George M. Marsden evokes the world of colonial New England in which Edwards was reared - a frontier civilization between Native Americans, French Catholics, and English Protestants. Drawing on newly available resources, 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 American culture.

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