  • MONSTROUS CONFESSIONS: EARLY AMERICAN WOMEN AND THE DANGERS OF DIVINE
           REVELATION

    • Authors: Emily Dolan Gierer
      Pages: 2 - 25
      Abstract: After Sarah Pierpont Edwards experienced a series of profound encounters with God in 1742, her husband included a description of these experiences in his Some Thoughts Concerning the Present Revival of Religion in New England (1743), though he stripped his account of any identifying details. When Sarah’s original account was later published in Sereno E. Dwight’s The Life of President Edwards (1830), it became clear that not only had Jonathan dropped her name and gender from the account, but he had also edited out much of her language. Though Jonathan directly quotes Sarah’s account in some sections, by and large his descriptions are less detailed and evocative than hers.

  • A PROFILE OF THE NORTHAMPTON MINORITY

    • Authors: Jennifer Reagan McCleery
      Pages: 26 - 35 + Appen
      Abstract: Jonathan Edwards was famously dismissed from the Northampton church in 1750. On June 22 of that year, the male members of the Northampton church voted by an overwhelming majority to sack him, their arms going up, as witnessed by neighboring minister Robert Breck, as if “on springs.” But no matter how great the resentment of him,
      Edwards did not, could not depart from town immediately. Rather, he lingered for some months, trying to make arrangements for his next position, seeking to sell his house and property, and perhaps, most awkwardly, providing pulpit supply while the church searched for a new minister.

  • THE INFLUENCE OF JONATHAN EDWARDS ON THE MISSIOLOGY AND CONVERSIONISM OF
           RICHARD FURMAN (1755-1825)

    • Authors: Obbie Todd
      Pages: 36 - 54
      Abstract: Richard Furman (1755-1825) was a student and scion of the rich Edwardsean lineage, particularly as it pertained to his view of missions and conversion. As a Southern statesman and pastor, Furman was foundational in the spread of Edwards' theology beyond the cultural confines of New England. This is demonstrated most vividly in the correspondence between Edwards' A Divine and Supernatural Light (1734) and Furman's Conversion Essential to Salvation (1816). The following is a verbal and conceptual analysis of these two works for the purpose of elucidating Richard Furman’s appropriation of Jonathan Edwards’ missiology and conversionism.

  • EDWARDS’ COPY OF WILLIAM AMES’ MEDULLA

    • Authors: C. Layne Hancock
      Pages: 55 - 61
      Abstract: This past year, while doing research in Yale University’s Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library, the author “found,” or rather rediscovered, Edwards’ personal copy of William Ames’ Medulla Theologicae. The author says “found,” though it was not missing as such; however, since the volume was not identified in the library’s description as belonging to Edwards, it went unnoticed for a long tim

  • THOMAS REID’S READING NOTES ON EDWARDS’ FREEDOM OF THE WILL

    • Authors: Peter Jung
      Pages: 62 - 71
      Abstract: Jonathan Edwards’s Freedom of the Will (hereafter FOW) was published in Boston in 1754, followed by a second London edition in 1762.1 The work attracted not only its advocates, such as Andrew Fuller, William Godwin, John Collett Ryland, John Ryland Jr., and Edward Williams, but also its critics: Lord Kames, David Hume, Joseph Priestley, Dugald Stewart, Henry Philip Tappan, and especially the famous Common Sense philosopher Thomas Reid (1710-1796).
