George M. Marsden - widely acclaimed for his magisterial large study of Edwards - has now written a new, shorter biography of this many-sided, remarkable man. A Short Life of Jonathan Edwards is not an abridgment of Marsden's earlier award-winning study but is instead a completely new narrative based on his extensive research. The result is a concise, fresh retelling of the Edwards story, rich in scholarship yet compelling and readable for a much wider audience, including students.

"Terrific book and well narrated"
Don't know why anyone would not like this book if they want to learn about Jonathan Edwards. It's written by a true authority on Edwards, and Grover Gardners narration is very easy to listen to. I learned a lot.
"Fast paced and well written"
I really enjoyed this biography. It was a quick listen and very engaging. Highly recommended.
A biography of Edwards and a historical bio of the growing pains of religion and Christianity in the New World.
