Jonathan Edwards’ Psychological, Ethical, and Theological Philosophy in his Freedom of the Will
Imprint: Resource Publications
"Beyond all peradventure, the Freedom of the Will is the cornerstone of Edwards' fame; it is his most sustained intellectual achievement, the most powerful piece of sheer forensic argumentation in American literature. It became the Bible of the New England theology, and is considered by logicians one of the few proofs in which the conclusion follows inescapably and infallibly from the premises."
—Perry Miller, Harvard University
“This book alone is sufficient to establish its author as the greatest philosopher-theologian yet to grace the American scene.”
—Paul Ramsey, Princeton University

“Jonathan Edwards’s treatise on Freedom of the Will is one of the most important, and also one of the most demanding, works in philosophical theology from the modern era, but any who commit themselves to serious engagement with it will be rewarded. This new study guide will be helpful to students on many levels and to church study groups seeking to understand Edwards’ magnificent view of God and of the human person.”
—Kenneth P. Minkema, Yale University
"A new edition of Edwards' work is a worthy project given the importance of this work for the history of debates about free will and religious belief. The introduction to this new edition by Peter Jung concerning the history and scholarly discussions of Edwards' seminal work is especially thorough, well-researched, and very informative."
—Robert Kane, University of Texas at Austin
