Jonathan Edwards is one of the most extraordinary figures in American history. Arguably the most brilliant theologian ever born on American soil, Edwards (1703 - 1758) was also a pastor, a renowned preacher, a missionary to the Native Americans, a biographer, a college president, a philosopher, a loving husband, and the father of 11 children.

George M. Marsden - widely acclaimed for his magisterial large study of Edwards - has now written a new, shorter biography of this many-sided, remarkable man. A Short Life of Jonathan Edwards is not an abridgment of Marsden's earlier award-winning study but is instead a completely new narrative based on his extensive research. The result is a concise, fresh retelling of the Edwards story, rich in scholarship yet compelling and readable for a much wider audience, including students. Download and start listening now!

    " A great birds-eye view of the life of Jonathan Edwards. Very readable and charitably objective. I enjoyed his comparison between Ben Franklin and Edwards. "

    " The title is right. It is a short book, working through all the elements of Edwards' life quickly. A very good overview, however. Whets the appetite for Marsdens' longer Edwards biography. "
