Jonathan Edwards’s ministry marked a crucial moment in the history of Christianity and Calvinism in America. Edwards scholars Douglas Sweeney and Allen Guelzo explore his legacy and its development in The New England Theology. They skillfully select major representative writings of the American followers of Edwards and accompany them with insightful introductions. Their assemblage of primary texts—from Edwards himself, as well as figures including Samuel Hopkins, Nathaniel W. Taylor, Harriet Beecher Stowe, and Charles G. Finney—provides a powerful look at the influence of Edwardsean thought.

Contents:

  • Wellspring of the New England Theology: The Thought of Jonathan Edwards
  • The Emergence of a Movement: Early New Divinity Thought
  • The Moral Government of God: Edwardseans and the Atonement
  • Edwardsean Ethics: Antislavery and Missions
  • The Exercisers and the Tasters
  • Theology in New Haven
  • Finney and the New Measures
  • Last of the “Consistent Calvinists”: Edwards Amasa Park
  • Things Sublime and Eternal: The New England Theology as Remembered by Harriet Beecher Stowe
This volume of rare sermons and documents makes an unprecedented contribution to our understanding of the ‘New England theology’ as it emerged from Jonathan Edwards and continued through Edwards Amasa Park. The introduction prepared by two seasoned Edwards scholars represents an acute and thought-provoking analysis of the intellectual and theological underpinnings of the New England theology. A rich, absorbing, and always engaging collection, this volume will be of great interest to Edwards scholars and general readers alike.

In these judicious selections accompanied by crisp and illuminating introductions, Sweeney and Guelzo ably identify the vitality and scope of the New England theology. If you want to know something of the flavor and substance of America’s first indigenous theology, this volume is the place to begin.

—David W. Kling, professor and chair, department of religious studies, University of Miami

This volume, collecting the major representative writings of the American disciples of Jonathan Edwards, is the first of its kind and long overdue. In the hands of Guelzo and Sweeney, the ‘New Divinity’ movement emerges here as a grand story, told in the medium of theology, that both reflected and shaped the new republic.

Kenneth P. Minkema, executive editor, Jonathan Edwards Center, Yale University

Although both historians and the general public have become increasingly fascinated by Jonathan Edwards, many know little about the thinkers who tried to carry on his legacy. Douglas Sweeney and Allen Guelzo should be commended for assembling a marvelous collection of writings.

—Catherine A. Brekus, professor, religions and America and the history of Christianity, University of Chicago Divinity School

This collection of the New England theology’s primary texts clearly reveals both the continuing presence of Edwardsean thought and the diversity of its expression in the century following Jonathan Edwards’s death.
