"One studies the time and backgrounds of some men in order to understand them. Others have such rare greatness that one studies them in order to understand their times. . . . Jonathan Edwards was such an original."
—Paul Ramsey, Editor of Edwards's ethical writings in the Yale critical edition
"No man is more relevant to the present condition of Christianity than Jonathan Edwards."
"The western church . . . much of it drifting, enculturated, and infected with cheap grace . . . desperately needs to hear Edwards's challenge."
—Charles Colson, founder, Prison Fellowship and the Colson Center for Christian Worldview
"[Edwards] speaks with an insight into science and psychology so much ahead of his time that our own can hardly be said to have caught up with him."
—Perry Miller, Former Harvard Historian
"One of the most holy, humble and heavenly minded men that the world has seen since the apostolic age."
—Ashbel Green, 1829, Former President of the College of New Jersey
". . . the profoundest reasoner, and the greatest divine . . . that America ever produced."
—Samuel Davies, 1759
"[Edwards] was a man who put faithfulness to the Word of God before every other consideration."
—Iain Murray, Edwards's Biographer
"The disappearance of Edwards's [God-entranced] perspective in American Christian history has been a tragedy."
—Mark A. Noll, Francis A. McAnaney Professor of History, University of Notre Dame; author, Protestantism: A Very Short Introduction
"Edwards's book, The End for Which God Created the World [is] . . . unsurpassed in terms of its theological grandeur."
—David Brand, Author, Edwards Scholar
