Jonathan Edwards may be the greatest and most important theologian America has produced. His depth and breadth of knowledge across multiple disciplines, including the natural sciences and philosophy, would be impressive for a pastor working today. Edwards, however, didn’t have the luxury of having Bible software at his fingertips: he pastored a rural church and worked on the mission field in eighteenth century Massachusetts, reading everything he could get his hands on.
For years, the only edition of Edwards’ works available was a deficient print version. Since the 1950s, however, Yale University Press has put together scholarly editions of Edward’s works, providing in-depth introductions and notes on his treatises, sermons, and other documents that provide theological and social background to his writings. Spanning 26 volumes, this massive collection covers the entirety of his life and includes well-known works such as the Freedom of the Will and Religious Affections as well as many sermons and supplementary material that has never been available before.
