Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Noted authors whose disciplines range from history to religion to literature attempt to describe Jonathan Edwards's hold on the American imagination and to place his career in the context of his predecessors, contemporaries, and successors. Although all 15 essays recognize Edwards's significance in American thought and credit him with literary power and psychological skill even while regarding him as pre-modern, much of the work is devoted to proving that Edwards was less forward-looking than once thought. This excellent work belongs in any academic library emphasizing American studies or religion. Susan A. Stussy, Marian Coll. Lib., Indianapolis
Copyright 1988 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

"A valuable addition to Edwards scholarship because it deals not only with Edwards's thought but also with his continuing impact on American culture."--Journal of American History


"[A] fine collection of essays....Edwards's relentless and sublime thought comes through clearly."--The Christian Century


"Noted authors whose disciplines range from history to religion to literature attempt to describe Jonathan Edwards's hold on the American imagination and to place his career in the context of his predecessors, contemporaries, and successors....This excellent work belongs in any academic library emphasizing American studies or religion."--Library Journal
