Jonathan Edwards Center and Yale University Press partner with Faithlife to release rare Jonathan Edwards works

For the first time ever, thousands of rare works by Jonathan Edwards are available in a completely searchable and easy-to-use digital format.

BELLINGHAM, Wash. (January 20, 2015) — Faithlife, makers of Logos Bible Software, has partnered with Yale University Press and the Jonathan Edwards Center at Yale University to offer thousands of new digital texts by American philosopher and theologian, Jonathan Edwards.

Faithlife’s new 26-volume collection offers the most comprehensive archive of Edwards’ treatises, sermons, letters, musings and previously unpublished works ever assembled.

Yale University Press has spent years compiling unreleased works into print books and scanned PDFs; this new collection is the first to present this unprecedented collection in a highly accessible digital format.

“While the previously released letterpress edition of Yale’s Works of Jonathan Edwards is a significant achievement, it includes less than half of what Edwards wrote,” said Dr. Kenneth Minkema, Executive Editor and Director at the Jonathan Edwards Center and Online Archive at Yale University. “The Jonathan Edwards Center has been working to prepare the remainder of Edwards’ vast corpus, presenting it online and now in partnership with Faithlife. This is an exciting opportunity for us as editors of Edwards’ writings and, we hope, for readers who will have new texts — treatises, essays, sermons, notebooks, personalia and more — to digest.”

Scholars, teachers and students can now include the world’s largest digital resource for an American religious figure in their personal digital libraries. When used with Logos Bible Software, these works are completely searchable. In seconds, find every occurrence of the word “hell” in “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God” and every sermon where he addressed “grace”.
