One studies the time and backgrounds of some men in order to understand them. Others have such rare greatness that one studies them in order to understand their times-. Jonathan Edwards was such an original. No man is more relevant to the present condition of Christianity than Jonathan Edwards.

Edwards speaks with an insight into science and psychology so much ahead of his time that our own can hardly be said to have caught up with him.
