251 years ago this month, Jonathan Edwards, a colonial American preacher, theologian, and missionary to Native Americans, died. He is widely acknowledged to be America’s most important theologian, and identified by some as the last great Puritan.

This feature with Dr. Steven Lawson, Senior Pastor of Christ Fellowship Baptist Church in Mobile, AL, explores Edwards’ life and legacy.

Dr. Lawson wrote a wonderful profile on Edwards’ life, that I have greatly enjoyed reading through with my daughter.  The first chapter of the book includes a short biography of Edwards but spends most of its time exploring his 70 resolutions.  If you’d like to order a copy of: The Unwavering Resolve of Jonathan Edwards, it is available from Reformation Trust Publishing.

  1. Jonathan Edwwards truly is one of the greatest theologians of all time. I think that many people underestimate him. We should read more about his profound theology.
