New Book. Jonathan Edwards and Scotland


The University of Glasgow hosted a conference in 2009 organized by the Jonathan Edwards Center at Yale University, in connection with Homecoming Year. The papers in this collection emanate from that conference and highlight Edwards' connections to prominent Scots religious figures such as the Erskines, his reactions to philosophers such as Hume and Kames, his cooperation with Scots preachers and mission activists, the transatlantic revival network, and even recent phenomena such as the Toronto Blessing in Scotland and its reliance on Edwards. While the international influence of Edwards has been noted in scholarship, this volume is the first devoted entirely to the theme of Edwards' reception outside of America, Scotland arguably being the country that has most consistently felt Edwards' influence.
This collection will appeal to scholars and researchers across a number of disciplines as well as pastors, religious leaders and seminarians.
