This volume presents the complete texts of twenty-three sermons preached by Jonathan Edwards during the first years of his career. The sermons, which have never been printed before, document one of the least explored periods of this eminent theologian's life and thought. Fully annotated, they are accompanied by an editor's preface that combines new information with fresh readings of related texts.

"The sermons ... are models of unobtrusive, intelligent editing. ... That this edition is scrupulous and thorough testifies to Kimnach's quarter century of devoted scholarship; that it is graceful and generous only enhances his already considerable achievement."--M.
