Jonathan Edwards (1703–1758) served the Northampton Congregational Church in Massachusetts for twenty-three years, then missionary outpost to the Mohawk and Mohican tribes. In 1758, he became president of the College of New Jersey (now Princeton University). Edwards "is widely acknowledged to be America's most important and original philosophical theologian," and one of America's greatest intellectuals.
"The name of Jonathan Edwards is synonymous with revival. And when it comes to renewal and revival in the church, I can't think of a better way to get one's heart beating in rhythm with the Saviour's than to spend time with Jonathan Edwards through his excellent treatise, "An Humble Attempt." The words may be from another century, but his passion and zeal, fervor and devotion to God are as fresh and first-hand as though he were preaching today." - Joni Eareckson Tada, Activist for the disabled and author of Joni, the award-winning Tell Me the Promises, and other classics
"For all his intellectual might, Edwards was the farthest thing from a cool, detached, neutral, disinterested academician." - John Piper, Founder of Desiring God Ministries, Chancellor of Bethlehem College & Seminary, Minneapolis, Minnesota
