Travel With Jonathan Edwards
Full Product Description
In a world wracked by the clash of European powers, Jonathan Edwards, one of the most extraordinary theologian-pastors in the history of Christianity, sought to express by means of the spoken word and printed text his vision of the glory of God, sovereign over this worlds empires, and its practical implications for humanity.
It was Jonathan Edwards's genius that he could make full use of John Locke's philosophy and Isaac Newton's discoveries to reinterpret man's relationship to God in such a way that the experience of supernatural grace became available to people living in an intellectual and cultural climate very different from that of 17th-century England.
In so doing, Edwards helped transmit to later generations the richest aspect of American Puritanism: the individual heart's experience of spiritual and emotional rebirth. Further, by his leadership in the religious revivals of the early 18th century, Edwards helped make the experience an integral part of American life for his own time and for the following century.

Travel with Jonathan EdwardsAlan Hill, via The Good Book Stall
This is another in the Travel with series of biographies produced by Day One. Jonathan Edwards is regarded as one of the leading theologians of the 18th century. Many of his books are still in print. But he was also a faithful pastor who witnessed true revival, a zealous missionary who took the Gospel to Native Americans, and a loving husband and father to eleven children.
The eight chapters go through his life chronologically, identifying places in the USA associated with his life. There are helpful maps and information about opening times of churches and museums.
The whole book is lavishly illustrated with hundreds of colour photos. This book is an excellent introduction to the life of Jonathan Edwards and even if you are never able to visit the sites you will learn a great deal about this important Christian.
