This volume concludes the series of private theological notebooks that Jonathan Edwards kept from his late teens to the end of his life. It covers the years from 1751 to 1758, a period during which he faced a variety of difficult challenges while working at the Stockbridge Indian mission and served a short-lived presidency at Princeton, then known as the College of New Jersey. In these entries Edwards grapples with modern naturalism, critiques “generous doctrines,” and attempts to bolster Reformed thought in the face of the Enlightenment.

Douglas A. Sweeney is chair, Department of Church History and the History of Christian Thought, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School.

"The excellent index as well as the outstanding tour presented in the editor's introduction will allow any Edwards-enthusiast access to the prominent themes contained in these entries. . . . This volume is an excellent resource for Edwards specialists and historians of American Christianity and American theology. Non-specialist fans of Edwards who wish to take their understanding of this New England pastor to a deeper level will enjoy this glimpse into his personal studies. Douglas Sweeney's introductory essay superbly contextualizes Edwards's notes, providing a biography of this period, a survey of Edwards's main interlocutors, and a summary of the prominent themes throughout the notes. I highly recommend this volume."—Robert W. Caldwell III, Southwestern Journal of Theology
