book description
Many recognize the importance of Jonathan Edwards, yet the writings of those who followed in his theological footsteps are less widely known. This collection draws together their key works, making them accessible to a broader audience and providing readers with easy access to an important part of the Calvinist tradition in America. In addition to plentiful selections from Edwards, the volume includes eighteenth- and nineteenth-century works from writers such as Samuel Hopkins, Nathanael Emmons, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Timothy Dwight, Nathaniel W. Taylor, and Charles G. Finney. Their writings have broadly influenced evangelical theology in America, and this collection will be of great value for those interested in the study of Jonathan Edwards and the New England Theology tradition.
