Customer Questions & Answers for
Yale University Press Jonathan Edwards: A Life

Jonathan Edwards led a rich intellectual and spiritual life that went far beyond the more well known fire-and-brimestone sermons he delivered in colonial America. In this biography, Edwards' life is carefully detailed from observing God's handiwork from his childhood through his adolescent struggles with faith. Marsden, a highly regarded American church historian, discusses Edwards' powerful preaching in the revivals that dominated the Connecticut Valley in the First Great Awakening and beyond and evaluates Edwards' successful mission to the Indians.

Garnering an amazing amount of notariety, Jomathan Edwards: A Life was a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award in the biography category for books published in 2003; winner of the 2001-2003 Annibel Jenkins Biography Prize sponsored by the Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies; winner of the 2004 Bancroft Prize sponsored by Columbia University; winner of the 2004 Merle Curti Award in intellectual history given by the Organization of American Historians; won the 2004 John C. Pollock Award for Christian Biography sponsored by the Beeson Divinity School and Samford University; co-winner of the 2004 Eugene Genovese Best Book in American History Prize sponsored by the Historical Society; selected as one of the Best Books of 2003 by Atlantic Monthly, Washington Post Book World, Christian Century, Books & Culture, Beliefnet, Publishers Weekly, and Christian Science Monitor; featured in Preaching magazine as "one of the top ten books every preacher should read"; selected as an outstanding book by University Press Books for Public and Secondary School Libraries; winner of the 2005 University of Louisville Grawemeyer Award in Religion; short-listed by The English-Speaking Union for the Ambassador Book Awards; won the 2004 Christianity Today Magazine Book Award in the History/Biography category.; and won the Philip Schaff Prize sponsored by the American Society of Church History.
