Jonathan Edwards has two claims to fame. He was known to his own age primarily as an evangelistic pastor, and he is still remembered chiefly in that role because of his connection with the "Great Awakening" of the middle eighteenth century. As his major works cane to press rather late in his life, he drew the world's attention to himself as a logician and commanded high respect from theologians and philosophers alike, even those who disagreed with his position showing deference to his logic. The "Great Awakening" was not simply a passing wave of emotional froth washing the shores of New England and then sinking back into the ocean of indifference to be forgotten. It came in the wake of, and seemingly as a result of, definite doctrinal preaching} and both the doctrine and the experience of the revival have left their mark, their particular flavor, upon the thought life and the religious practice of America and, to a lesser extent, of all Christendom-so much so that books are still being written about Jonathan Edwards, and the relative merits and demerits of the "Great Awakening" are still being debated This thesis seeks to present the great doctrinal concepts of Edwards that, as preached, made for revival and to examine his manner of communicating those concepts.
