From the Publisher
"This well-documented and clearly written book is proof that Jonathan Edwards's image continues to be transformed by the study of the unpublished texts in the Beinecke Library in Yale University. Even readers who are acquainted with Edwards's better-known writings will find McDermott's book a journey into terra incognita, or toward "a strange, new Edwards" (pp. 3-13) He conclusively demonstrates that Edwards devoted his final years to developing what today would be called a theology of world religions." Journal of Religion
"This surprising and stimulating study comprises three parts and a conclusion." Anglican Theological Review.
"It is testimony to both Gerald R. McDermott's talent as a scholar and to Jonathan Edward's own genius that this new volume succeeds in exploring a virtually unknown and fascinating aspect of the thought of perhaps the most carefully scrutinized theologian in U.S. religious history."Journal of the American Academy of Religion
