Ronald Story offers us a new interpretation of Jonathan Edwards, who from his Northampton pulpit launched the Great Awakening that stirred religious feeling throughout New England. He situates Edwards in the intellectual culture of his time, and emphasizes his philosophical commitment to love as the basis for virtue. Story points up Edwards' passionate belief in the virtues of charity and community. Here is a portrait of a great American theologian that makes him newly available to us and puts him in dialogue with the community of our own day.
