Jonathan Edwards (1703–1758).
A Faithful Narrative of the Surprizing Work of God in the Conversion of Many Hundred Souls in Northampton, and the Neighbouring Towns and Villages of New Hampshire in New-England.
London: John Oswald, 1737. (03301)
Congregational minister and Calvinist theologian Jonathan Edwards was one of the most prominent American clergymen of the eighteenth century. The influence of Pietism can be seen in his emphasis on the Holy Spirit and the “new birth” conversion experience. In this narrative Edwards recounted one of the high points of the first Great Awakening, the Northampton, Massachusetts revival that began in 1734 and continued until 1737.
