An essential volume for Edwards lovers, The Jonathan Edwards Encyclopedia will prove to be indispensable for study of America’s theologian. A few days ago contributors started receiving their complimentary copies from Eerdmans Publishing Company. A quick scan of Facebook’s newsfeed revealed the excitement of many of the authors proudly holding their copies, sometimes opened to their articles. The excitement is justified—the Encyclopedia is truly a grand production which has been years in the making. Great thanks are owed to the editorial labors of Harry Stout, Ken Minkema and Adriaan Neele who also contributed to this valuable work and George Marsden who wrote the foreword. Much gratitude is due to the 169 scholars who contributed the 395 articles which comprise this volume. Get it here.
