  • A PLAN FOR AN INDIAN GIRLS’ SCHOOL (c. 1752)

    • Authors: Kenneth P. Minkema
      Abstract: At some point, apparently in early 1752, Edwards drew a plan for a small building. At this time, the Stockbridge mission was experiencing difficulties. Joseph Dwight, a Stockbridge resident and one of the Indian Commissioners, though once friendly to Edwards, had married John Sergeant’s widow, Abigail Williams, and subsequently turned on the missionary/minister. He also made life difficult for the new, young schoolteacher, Gideon Hawley. Edwards complained about the Williams’ efforts to gain sole management of the Indian schools, their mistreatment of Indian children, their questionable use of mission finances, and other issues. He also noted that Dwight had bought a number of large boards and was storing them on his property, apparently with the intention of building a new schoolhouse for Indian girls, which his newlywed wife would run.

  • JONATHAN EDWARDS ON THE “FLYING” SPIDER: A MODEL OF ECOLOGICAL
           THOUGHT IN MICROCOSM

    • Authors: Richard A. Hall
      Abstract: With a summary of “Of Insects,” Edwards’ essay is placed in its historical context by comparing it to studies in entomology current in his day so as to determine its distinctiveness and originality, if any. Furthermore, an indication will be given as to how his essay belongs to the literary genre of physico-theology and reflects the climate of philosophical opinion of his time.

  • DIFFERENT STREAMS . . . INTO THE SAME GREAT OCEAN”: JONATHAN
           EDWARDS, ROBERT MILLAR, AND TRANSATLANTIC INFLUENCE ON A HISTORY OF THE
           WORK OF REDEMPTION

    • Authors: Darren Schmidt
      Abstract: This study examines the influence of religious historical writings by Church of Scotland clergyman Robert Millar on Jonathan Edwards’s History of the Work of Redemption. In the relative absence of sources elucidating this avenue of influence, the approach taken here is largely one of comparing Work of Redemption’s content against corresponding sections of Millar's History of the Propagation of Christianity (3rd ed., 1731), which Edwards owned, and his History of the Church Under the Old Testament (1730), for which no prior knowledge of Edwards’s familiarity exists. A sampling of evident correlations points to the plausibility that Edwards made use of Millar’s writings for their historical data, but also for more substantive material: interpretive positions on details, theological perspectives, uses of Scripture in reference to history, even authorial purposes and designs. Findings, in turn, raise a number of broader considerations regarding modern-day understandings of Work of Redemption and of Edwards’s place within transatlantic intellectual and religious currents.

  • SAMUEL KNEELAND AND DANIEL HENCHMAN: JONATHAN EDWARDS’ CHIEF PRINTER
           AND PUBLISHER IN BOSTON

    • Authors: Jonathan Yeager
      Abstract: In the last fifty years, Jonathan Edwards (1703–1758) has become the subject of countless articles, books, and dissertations. Yet, surprisingly, virtually nothing has been written on Edwards’ main printer and publisher in Boston. The printer Samuel Kneeland (1697–1769) and the bookseller-publisher Daniel Henchman (1689–1761) are shadowy figures in the narrative that surrounds Edwards’ life. These men were crucial, however, to the production and dissemination of Edwards’ writings, especially in the first half of the eighteenth century. It would not be unfair to say that in the first half of the eighteenth century, much of Edwards’ success as an author can be attributed to Kneeland and Henchman, who served as his chief printer and publisher in Boston. These two men were responsible for producing the bulk of Edwards’ writings before his death in 1758. This article examines the role that Kneeland and Henchman played in publishing and distributing Edwards’ texts while placing them within the context of the colonial Boston book trade.

  • WHY EDWARDS DID NOT UNDERSTAND THOMAS BOSTON: A COMPARISON OF THEIR VIEWS
           ON THE COVENANTS

    • Authors: Cornelis van der Knijff, Willem van Vlastuin
      Abstract: In a letter to a friend Jonathan Edwards remarked that he did not understand the covenant scheme of Thomas Boston (1676-1732). When examining Edwards’ views it appears that he initially shared Boston’s view, but later changed his view. After 1733 Edwards changed from a two-covenant scheme to a three-covenant scheme in which the covenant of grace was distinguished from the covenant of redemption. This means that Edwards’ lack of understanding has to be understood not in the literal sense—that he did not technically comprehend Boston—but in a theological sense. Edwards’ theological development of the covenants of God reveals a real difference with Thomas Boston. This difference can be traced through Edwards’ increasing focus on the historic unfolding of the covenant of redemption, which made him critical towards the absence of the historic aspect in Boston’s covenant view. In short, the development in Edwards’ view leads us to focus on both the relationship and the distinction between the eternal covenant of redemption between God the Father and God the Son on the one hand, and on the application of God’s eternal covenant in redemptive history as the functioning of the covenant of grace on the other hand.
