In this video post, EdwardsStudies.com general editor Matthew Everhard gives a very brief introduction to an incredibly clear and easy book to begin studying Edwards! In fact, this book is so easy to read, it even has cartoons provided. That doesn’t necessarily make the thoughts of Edwards easier, but this is as good of an intro as you can get to the Northampton Puritan.
The book recommended here is James P. Byrd’s work Jonathan Edwards for Armchair Theologians. You can buy it here at Amazon.com.
