Widely considered the United States’s foremost theologian and philosopher, Jonathan Edwards was a leader in the 18th-century Great Awakening and remains a pivotal figure in the nation’s history and in Evangelical theology. Edwards’s sermon, “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God,” is considered a seminal work of literature and his collected writings remain central to the study of religion and U.S. history. Since 2008, the NEH has partnered with the Jonathan Edwards Center at Yale University to make Edwards’s writing freely available to the public. The partnership has produced a searchable, online database of his work, including digitized versions of Yale University Press’s 26-volume collection, The Works of Jonathan Edwards, and 47 additional online volumes of previously unpublished writings and documents.
