Endorsements & Reviews-

"This volume of rare sermons and documents makes an unprecedented contribution to our understanding of the 'New England Theology' as it emerged from Jonathan Edwards and continued through Edwards Amasa Park. The introduction, prepared by two seasoned Edwards scholars, represents an acute and thought-provoking analysis of the intellectual and rheological underpinnings of the New England Theology. A rich, absorbing, and always engaging collection, this volume will be of great interest to Edwards scholars and general readers alike."
--Harry S. Stout, Yale University

"One of the problems in studying American theology in the eighteenth and nineteenth century is that many of the sources are not easily available. The New England Theology is a marvelous anthology of central writings. Aficionados may quibble because some valuable material was left out, but this is a great collection. The introductions and editorial work of the editors are also helpful and fair minded."
--Bruce Kucklick, University of Pennsylvania

"This volume, collecting the major representative writings of the American disciples of Jonathan Edwards, is the first of its kind and long overdue. In the hands of Sweeney and Guelzo, the 'New Divinity' movement emerges here as a grand story, told in the medium of theology that both reflected and shaped the new republic."
--Kenneth P. Minkema, Yale University

"Although both historians and the general public have become increasingly fascinated by Jonathan Edwards, many know little about the thinkers who tried to carry on his legacy. Douglas Sweeney and Allen Guelzo should be commended for assembling a marvelous collection of writings."
--Catherine A. Brekus, University of Chicago Divinity School

"In these judicious selections accompanied by crisp and illuminating introductions, Sweeney and Guelzo ably identify the vitality and scope of the New England Theology. If you want to know something of the flavor and substance of America's first indigenous theology, this volume is the place to begin."
--David W. Kling, University of Miami

"This collection of the New England Theology's primary texts clearly reveals both the continuing presence of Edwardsean thought and the diversity of its expression in the century following Jonathan Edwards's death."
--Ava Chamberlain, Wright State University
