Selected Writings of Jonathan Edwards

Selected Writings of Jonathan Edwards

The expanded second edition of Harold Simonsons well-chosen, compact compilation of essays, sermons and other writings of Jonathan Edwards adds several important works to the first-edition collection: Resolutions, Heaven Is a World of Love, Dissertation Concerning the End for Which God Created the World, Treatise on Grace, and Images or Shadows of Divine Things. This concise selection of Edwardss works effectively reveals his far-ranging perspectives in theology, ethics, psychology, and aesthetics. As a theologian Edwards stands alone; as a philosopher his peers include only Emerson and William James. Edwardss insights into the human condition penetrate to the deepest levels of literary artistry, holding his own with the likes of Hawthorne, Melville, Faulkner, Henry James, and Emily Dickinson. Modern readers of Edwardss works will realize that his timeless vision maintains its relevance in the twenty-first century.
