This massive collection—totaling over 16,000 pages—is the most comprehensive and accurate archive of Edwards' treatises, sermons, letters, and his musings—including many works that have never been published. Each volume includes critical introductions by noted Edwards scholars, providing the latest contemporary analysis, commentary, and reflection on Edwards. These thorough introductions cover topics including Edwards' life, thought, and literary sources, as well as the historical context of Edwards' works, the nature and purpose of his writings, and the reception and evaluation of each work. This Yale edition is the standard set of Edwards' Works for serious Edwardsean study, and is unprecedented in sheer volume and value.
Jonathan Edwards, theologian and prominent religious leader of eighteenth-century New England, left his impression on theological thinking not only in this country but throughout the entire Protestant world. There has been no collected edition of Edwards' works since the early nineteenth century, and as recently as a generation ago scholars were likely to describe Edwards as an anachronism and to classify him as a preacher of gore and hellfire. In our own time, many have begun to perceive the majesty and force of Jonathan Edwards' personality, and new investigation has revealed in his thinking a prophetic challenging of assumptions America has long entertained but has only lately been obliged to reexamine. This Yale edition of Edwards' works—a compilation of five decades worth of study and scholarship—will benefit pastors, theologians, laypersons, and anyone interested in Jonathan Edwards, his works, and his impact on American Christian thought.

One measure of [Edwards’] greatness is Yale University Press’ critical edition of his works.
—Gerald R. McDermott, United Press International
The Works of Jonathan Edwards . . . is the premier scholarly editorial project in American intellectual history.

Excellent and welcome additions to the growing body of scholarship on a figure who is America’s foremost theologian to date and one who also stands shoulder to shoulder with the likes of Augustine, Aquinas, Luther, and Calvin.

Praise for Jonathan Edwards
Edwards was a man born out of time, whose contributions were so prescient of the modern age that the present day is only just beginning to catch up with him.
Jonathan Edwards is in a class by himself in American history, perhaps in the history of Christendom . . . The God-enthralled vision of Jonathan Edwards is rare and necessary, because its foundations are so massive and its fruit so beautiful. May the Lord himself open our eyes to see it . . . and be changed.
Edwards was extraordinary. By many estimates, he was the most acute early American philosopher and the most brilliant of all American theologians.
No man is more relevant to the present condition of Christianity than Jonathan Edwards.
All his life he fed his soul on the Bible; and all his life he fed his flock on the Bible. Humanly speaking, he had a unique gift for making ideas live by the luminous precision with which he expounded them.
Pore through those pages of Edwards’s great book, and you will find much to enlighten your mind and warm your heart. Indeed, you will find truths that will bring you joy from now throughout eternity.
America’s most important and original philosophical theologian.
One of the most holy, humble and heavenly-minded men, that the world has seen, since the apostolic age.
—Ashbel Green, President of the College of New Jersey (Princeton University), 1829
The profoundest reasoner, and the greatest divine . . . that America ever produced.
—Samuel Davies, 1759

About Jonathan Edwards
Jonathan Edwards was born in 1703 in East Windsor, Connecticut to Timothy and Esther Edwards. He began his formal education at Yale College in 1716, where he encountered the Calvinism that had influenced his own Puritan upbringing. In 1727, he was ordained as minister of the church in Northampton, Massachusetts. The First Great Awakening began in Edwards’ church three years later, which prompted Edwards to study conversion and revival within the context of Calvinism. During the revival, Edwards preached his most famous sermon, “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God,” and penned many of his most popular works, including The Distinguishing Marks of a Work of the Spirit of God, A Treatise Concerning Religious Affections, and The Life of David Brainerd. When the revival subsided, the church of Northampton became increasingly suspect of Edwards’ strict requirements for participation in the sacraments. Edwards left Northampton in 1750 to become a minister at a missions church in Stockbridge, Massachusetts. In 1757, Edwards reluctantly became president of the College of New Jersey (Princeton University), where he hoped to complete two major works—one that expanded his treatise on the history of redemption, and the other on the harmony of the Old and New Testaments. His writing ambitions were interrupted by his death in 1758, when he died of complications stemming from a smallpox inoculation.
