This definitive biography of America’s most important religious figure draws on newly available sources to reveal how he was shaped by the cultural and religious battles of his time. “A magisterial biography.”—Wall Street Journal “The finest biography of this towering figure.”—Benjamin Schwarz, Atlantic Monthly “One way to make sense of contemporary evangelicalism is to consider how it has both hewed to and strayed from the path laid down by one of its most brilliant founding fathers. Thanks to Marsden’s authoritative new biography . . . the path is now more clear.”—Jay Tolson, U.S. News & World Report “In this conscientious and eloquent biography, pious Jonathan Edwards comes to unruly life with all his unresolved complexity intact.”—Thomas D’Evelyn, Christian Science Monitor “Superb and engrossing.”—Robert D. Richardson, Washington Post Book World “[Marsden] writes with such verve that he has given us not only the definitive biography but also a narrative that reads like a novel.”—Edward T. Oakes, Commonweal
