A brilliant scholar who entered Yale at age 13 already fluent in Latin, Greek, and Hebrew, Jonathan Edwards led many of the revivals during the period of the Great Awakening in the early 1740's. Edwards is perhaps best known for his fire and brimstone approach to preaching which emphasized the sovereignty of God, the depravity of humankind, the reality of hell, and the necessity of a conversion experience. His powerful sermons relied on strong rhetoric intended to elicit an emotional response from listeners. Experience the reasoning of the great Puritan philosopher in his sermons, Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God, the most famous sermon in American history, and Pardon for the Greatest of Sinners.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Butch | 2/11/2014

    " Great biography of a remarkable mind and life. It starts a little slow, but stick with it. You won't regret it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rather Dashing | 2/10/2014

    " Warm, reverent, thorough, and never dull. A tremendous introduction to Edwards' life and thought. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chris | 1/12/2014

    " Probably the best biography written on America's preeminent intellectual and only major theologian. A bit dry at times, but gives a vivid view of what life was like in early 18th century colonial America. There are few figures that can claim to be so intellectually and spiritually devoted than Edwards. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Coyle | 1/9/2014

    " Though a bit slow at the start, Marsden manages the unlikely when he makes Jonathan Edwards readable. The biography is engaging and interesting, with little fluff. This belongs on the shelf next to the Silverman bio of Cotton Mather (The Life and Times of Cotton Mather) and the Hall bio of Increase Mather (The Last American Puritan The Life of Increase Mather, 1639-1723). "

    " I love this biography of America's preeminent theologian and intellectual. Marsden does a wonderful job of bringing Edwards to life! "

    " Best Edwards biography in print "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tim | 9/24/2013

    " Thoroughly enjoyed this biography of Edwards. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bob Ladwig | 9/11/2013

    " I was thoroughly impressed with Marsdens research in this book. Iain Murray's work is more charming but this book has far more research put into it. Both should go together in my humble opinion. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jay Perkins | 6/3/2013

    " This is probably my favorite biography! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jeff | 4/25/2013

    " This biography of a religious man in colonial America began my intense interest in the art of biography. It is well-written by a believer -- one who not only believes in God as did Edwards and sees Edwards as a man of God. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kyle Lammott | 2/1/2012

    " Great work by Marsden! A true honest look at Jonathan Edwards. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Aaron | 8/1/2011

    " Excellent biography of one of America's most influential thinkers and theologians. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Steve | 7/30/2008

    " First class theological biography that places Edwards in his place and time. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Glenn | 6/13/2008

    " A learned, but insightful book about about the passionate devotion to Jesus that directed the ministry and life of Jonathan Edwards "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jared | 12/5/2006

    " An amazing biography of an amazing man. It is a personable read with lots of information and insight. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Todd | 3/11/2002

    " Marsden's volume is the book to read if getting to know Jonathan Edwards is the goal. Without a doubt, this is the best biography on America's greatest theological thinker. Marsden explores the life, times, and thought of this enigmatic giant of philisophical theology. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kelby Carlson | 8/1/2001

    " Jonathan Edwards' theology is not mine. Nonetheless, this biography was fascinating and illuminated extremely important antecedents to the religious tradition in which I was born and raised. "
