The Jonathan Edwards Center at Yale University is pleased to announce that, in partnership with William Eerdmans Publishing Company, it will be producing A Jonathan Edwards Encyclopedia. The volume, to be published in print and online, will be comprised of some 450 entries, ranging in length, according to the following categories:

Long: up to 2,000 words

We cordially invite registered users of the Edwards Center's website, subscribers to our online journal, Jonathan Edwards Studies, and other interested and qualified members of the reading public to participate in this community non-profit project.

We ask that contributors have at least a master's degree in history, theology, philosophy, religious studies, literature, or related fields, or are able to make a case for their qualification to contribute. To volunteer, please make your topic selection of the list of available entries. Please choose carefully. Also, if you don't see an entry listed, please feel free to propose one (or more). Please make your selected entry known to edwards@yale.edu, and we will change the status of the entry to "Assigned."

A Jonathan Edwards Encyclopedia will be an unprecedented reference source for the growing audience, initiates and long-term, of Edwards around the world. The JEC's staff greatly anticipates working with contributors and presenting to readers what is sure to be a useful collection.

Entries are due by June 15, 2014.
