Overview

"Some books are so well done that a fair review is largely a recitation of their merits. Moral Legislator is such a work.... Fitzmier's superb book offers a fresh view of New England's cultural elite during this era." —Church History

"This crisply written, well-argued study offers an insightful and comprehensive portrait of Dwight." —Journal of American History

"An excellent writer, Fitzmier develops Dwight’s thought as it is particularly related to a historical biblical millennium. This is the definitive work on Dwight; the endnotes and bibliography are extensive." —Library Journal

Grandson of Jonathan Edwards, president of Yale University, writer, teacher, theologian, Timothy Dwight was a major figure in the Second Great Awakening of American Protestantism. Understanding the ways in which his moralism shaped his vision leads to a fuller appreciation of the "godly federalism" that Dwight created and promulgated from the moral high ground of the Yale presidency.
