This book has great personal sentiment, as well. Though I attribute its impact more to the actual life of Jonathan Edwards, this biography got a hold of my heart from the start. From the very first chapter I was introduced into a world of faith that I had never experienced; I was able to see and experience another's Christian life that has since altered my entire view of what it means to love and glorify God. I would recommend this book to any person who is looking for an example of what a Christian life--and a Christian family, for that matter--should look like. It is an eye-opening experience, one that is honest and reliable: Murray doesn't sugarcoat the difficulties that Edwards was blessed with. From Edwards' early education through the Great Awakening to his death as the President of the College of New Jersey (Princeton), I was blown away with how this man of God handled his entire life. Edwards is proof that an undivided concern for the Lord's glorification breathes true life into all things. All that being said, I can honestly say that I'm a better worshiper of God for having read this book.
I would definitely recommend this book to any person, especially Christians seeking to understand God through a lifestyle of faith. Biographies in general provide stirring examples of God's sovereign work. This book, though it might take a degree of interest in American history, has a universal audience as a result of Jonathan Edwards' universal theology.
