"A Divine Light: The Spiritual Leadership of Jonathan Edwards" by David Vaughan is the latest of the "Leaders in Action" series published by Cumberland House. In three parts Vaughan portrays how the life, character and legacy of Jonathan Edwards (1703-1758) have shaped religious thought in North America. He also includes a chronology of Edwards' life and lessons of leadership. Edwards is recognized as a prominent religious thinker of the Colonial era. He was the pastor of an influential New England congregation and a driving force behind the revival of 1734-1735 and the Great Awakening of 1740-1741. He was also a prolific writer, defending his thoughts on theology, philosophy and morality. Although Edwards is described as, "the awakening's leading proponent," Vaughan makes it clear that the man was aware of the valid reasons why some questioned its authenticity and value. He spoke out against fanatics whose errors in judgment and practice gave the whole movement a bad name, but said these "stumbling blocks" were not sufficient reason to denounce the revival. According to Vaughan, it was Edwards's opinion that the good of leading souls to Christ outweighed the darker side of Satan's intervention in the process.

Throughout the book, Vaughan shares Edwards' thoughts on ministerial duties, offering nuggets of wisdom drawn from the pastor's life and writings. Edwards took his responsibility as a minister very seriously and urged others who followed the calling of God to do the same. Vaughan attributes him as saying, "A minister by his office is to be the guide and instructor of his people. To that end he is to study and search the Scriptures and to teach the people...the mind of Christ.
