Jonathan Edwards for Armchair Theologians (Armchair Theologians) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This witty and illuminating volume introduces the life and writings of the great American theologian and preacher Jonathan Edwards (1703-1758). The most widely studied figure in American religious history and an iconic figure of the American colonial period, Edwards is well known and highly regarded as a stalwart defender of Calvinist theology and his Puritan heritage. As James P. Byrd deftly reveals, however, Edwards was also a brilliant thinker and passionate pastor who wrestled continuously with the most important issue of his time: the relationship between faith and reason.

Written by experts but designed for the novice, the Armchair series provides accurate, concise, and witty overviews of some of the most profound moments and theologians in Christian history. These books are essential supplements for first-time encounters with primary texts, lucid refreshers for scholars and clergy, and enjoyable reads for the theologically curious.

About the Author

James P. Byrd is Assistant Dean for the Graduate Department of Religion and Assistant Professor of American Religious History at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee. He is the author of The Challenges of Roger Williams: Religious Liberty, Violent Persecution, and the Bible.
