Review:

"If you are looking for a short biography of Jonathan Edwards that is both accessible and deeply informed, look no further. This book is it."

A gauntlet-throwing biography...controversial, and a quick, enjoyable read. Gura will grab at least some of the audience of armchair-history-lovers that professional historians always claim they want to reach. "Kirkus"

Gura's brilliant cultural history of Edwards and his times splendidly reveals a side of the evangelist that has often been overlooked. "Publishers Weekly (starred review)"

Gura puts into perspective not only problems in today's churches but also personal religious experiences while also illustrating Edwards's cogent thinking in a transatlantic discourse that addressed free will, election, and the sovereignty of God...Recommended for large libraries. "Library Journal""
