Jonathan Edwards (1703–1758) was a theologian, preacher, missionary, writer, and philosopher who has made an incalculable impact on theology, politics, philosophy, the church, and American culture in general. One of the first graduates of Yale college, Edwards went on to write and preach in the Calvinist and Puritan tradition that was his heritage. His church in Northampton, Massachusetts was the epicenter of the Great Awakening, a religious revival that shaped the American religious landscape for years to come. A prolific preacher and writer, Edwards is the author of some of the most important theological works ever penned, including A Treatise concerning Religious Affections and The End for Which God Made the World. The Works of Jonathan Edwards, Yale Edition (26 vols.) is the definitive edition of his many books, treatises, sermons, and notes.
