Overview

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. Theology: Explained and Defended, by Timothy Dwight (5 vols.), solidly outlines the doctrine found in the Ten Commandments, as well as topics such as the sovereignty of Christ, justification, grace, the depravity of man, and much more. Students, professors, laity, and pastors will find this collection to be a solid theological foundation from which to build upon.

A compelling collection of 170 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 readily appear with a mouse-over, making Theology: Explained and Defended (5 vols.) a powerful set of resources and an excellent addition to your Logos Bible Software collection.

Praise for the Print Edition

His Theology: Explained and Defended was a textbook for fifty 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
