Biblical truth in the hands of Edwards lives mightily. Edwards in the hand of Peter Doyle comes alive. As we see an anemic Christendom today in its witness, ethics, and influence, we find the correctives and the guidance we need in the works of Jonathan Edwards––revivalist preacher, philosopher, and theologian. In this insightful book, former pastor and missionary Peter Doyle presents Edwards’ theology in a comprehensive scope: in its cultural context, against its adversaries, and with all its practical and pastoral implications. Doyle paints for readers a clear picture of how Edwards understands the ‘new birth.’ A cursory treatment of being born again this is not. The great revivals under Edwards’ preaching gave to the converts a sense of the glory of God, their own sinfulness, and a humility before the sacrifice of Christ for their sin.

About the Author

As a pastor and professor, Peter Reese Doyle has spent most of his adult life studying and teaching the writings of Christianity’s great thinkers. Peter studied at Virginia (Episcopal) Theological Seminary in Virginia and at Seabury-Western Seminary in Illinois, receiving the Bachelor of Divinity degree in 1957. In 1963 Peter commenced doctoral studies at the University of Basel where he studied Jonathan Edwards’ extensive writings on the work of God’s Spirit in human lives under the guidance of Professor Karl Barth. Peter and his wife, Sally Ann, served as Episcopal missionaries at Cuttington College and Divinity School in Liberia where he taught theology and she taught French. Peter later served as a pastor in Virginia, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Alabama and taught theology at several seminaries. Since retiring from the pastorate in 2006, Peter has continued his ministry of writing inspirational adventure stories for young readers (The Daring Family Adventures series and The Drums of War series).
