Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


Timothy Dwight IV, the grandson of Jonathan Edwards and son of a major in the army of George Washington, is widely known for his theological writings, preaching, and his presidency at Yale University. This second volume of Theology: Explained and Defended contains 37 of Dwight’s sermons. First addressing the depravity of man, then discussing the divinity of Christ, Christ as a prophet, the priesthood of Christ, his resurrection, and the doctrine of justification. Dwight’s words elucidate the doctrine contained within the gospels, Hebrews, and Romans.

A compelling collection of sermons, the words of Dwight provide thought-provoking, biblical reflection as he reminds us of the great importance of theological study. His sermons and memoirs are easily referenced in digital format, and Scripture references appearing on mouseover make Theology: Explained and Defended a powerful resource and an excellent addition to your Logos library.

Praise for the Print Edition

His Theology: Explained and Defended was a textbook for 50 years in many sections of the country and as far away as Australia. He preached steadily on the evidences of divine revelation, defended the Genesis record of the creation, the flood, and the history of the nations. He attacked skepticism by sound logic and overwhelming eloquence. He hammered away at the basic doctrines of conviction of sin and regeneration. His sermons were partly responsible for the four revivals which broke out in Yale College during his administration.

—Charles J. Woodbridge, Westminster Theological Journal
