The works of President Edwards by Jonathan Edwards( Book )

102 editions published between 1806 and 1981 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,198 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The number of those men, who have produced great and permanent changes in the character and condition of mankind, and stamped their own image on the minds of succeeding generations, is comparatively small; and, even of this small number, the great body have been indebted for their superior efficiency, at least in part, to extraneous circumstances, while very few can ascribe it to the simple strength of their own intellect. Yet here and there an individual can be found, who, by his mere mental energy, has changed the course of human thought and feeling, and led mankind onward in that new and better path which he had opened to their view. Such an individual was Jonathan Edwards. In preparing the Memoir, the Life by Dr. Hopkins, which is the testimony of an eye-witness, has been in corporated; and the quotations are marked in the usual way, except where the paragraphs are seriously altered by the insertion of new matter. In the last chapter, free use is made of a brief sketch of the Life and Character of Mr. Edwards, (also the testimony of an eye-witness,) by a gentleman connected with the college at Princeton, probably Dr. Finley, inserted in the first edition of the Treatise on Original Sin; as well as of a well written review of the Worcester Edition of his works, in the Christian Spectator. To a friend I am indebted, for the very brief account of the two Treatises on Original Sin, and the Freedom of the Will"--Book. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2008 APA, all rights reserved)

The nature of true virtue by Jonathan Edwards( Book )

26 editions published between 1960 and 2007 in 4 languages and held by 967 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Like the great speculators Augustine, Aquinas, and Pascal, Jonathan Edwards treated religious ideas as problems not of dogma, but of life. His exploration of self-love disguised as "true virtue" is grounded in the hard facts of human behavior. More than a hell-fire preacher, more than a theologian, Edwards was a bold and independent philosopher. Nowhere is his force of mind more evident than in this book. He speaks as powerfully to us today as he did to the keenest minds of the eighteenth century
The life of David Brainerd by Jonathan Edwards( Book )

32 editions published between 1749 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 917 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

David Brainerd's diary reveals him as a remarkable example of true, eminent piety in heart and practice. From the time Brainerd began to study theology until his death, he daily "walked with God" or mourned the absence of the light of his countenance. Jonathan Edwards says in his preface, "It [Brainerd's life] is most worthy of imitation, and in many ways calculated to promote the spiritual benefit of the careful observer."--Page 4 of cover

The sermons of Jonathan Edwards : a reader by Jonathan Edwards( Book )

10 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 581 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jonathan Edwards, widely considered America's most important Christian thinker, was first and foremost a preacher and pastor who guided souls and interpreted religious experiences. His primary tool in achieving these goals was the sermon, out of which grew many of his famous treatises. This selection of Edwards' sermons recognizes their crucial role in his life and art. The fifteen sermons, four of which have never been published before, reflect a life dedicated to experiencing and understanding spiritual truth. Chosen to represent a typical cycle of Edwards' preaching, the sermons address a wide range of occasions, situations, and states, corporate as well as personal. The book also contains an introduction that discusses Edwards' contribution to the sermon as a literary form, places his sermons within their social and cultural contexts, and considers his theological aims as a way of familiarizing the reader with the "order of salvation" as Edwards conceived of it. Together, the sermons and the editors' introduction offer a rounded picture of Edwards the preacher, the sermon writer, and the pastoral theologian

Jonathan Edwards : a life by George M Marsden( Book )

2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Jonathan Edwards (1703-1758) is a towering figure in American history. A controversial theologian and the author of the famous sermon Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God, he ignited the momentous Great Awakening of the eighteenth century." "In this biography, Jonathan Edwards emerges as both a great American and a brilliant Christian. George M. Marsden evokes the world of colonial New England in which Edwards was reared - a frontier civilization at the center of a conflict between Native Americans, French Catholics, and English Protestants. Drawing on newly available sources, Marsden demonstrates how these cultural and religious battles shaped Edwards' life and thought. Marsden reveals Edwards as a complex thinker and human being who struggled to reconcile his Puritan heritage with the secular, modern world emerging out of the Enlightenment. In this, Edwards' life anticipated the deep contradictions of our American culture."--Jacket
