The Works of Jonathan Edwards, Vol. 16

Volume 16: Letters and Personal Writings

  • Jonathan Edwards; Edited by George S. Claghorn


"An excellent resource for both Edwards scholars and more generally for students of eighteenth-century New England and its religious contacts across the North Atlantic world."ŚM. A. Smith, Ecclesiastical History

"This volume gathers together for the first time all of Edwards's known extant letters, including 116 never before published, as well as his only known statement on slavery and letters on the Indian mission at Stockbridge, Massachusetts. . . . This edition reveals the private man behind the treatises and sermons and traces Edwards's relations with parents, siblings, friends, and the leaders of colonial New England society."ŚMark A. Mastromarino, Documentary Editing

"This is truly 'an unprecedented resource' for new and enriched understanding of Edwards. While Edwards has been appreciated for his genius through his readily available treatises and sermons, a portrait of Edwards emerges from these pages that exposes a private, human, many-faceted personality."ŚWayne Hansen, Church History
