A Short Life of Jonathan Edwards Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
George M. Marsden - widely acclaimed for his magisterial large study of Edwards - has now written a new, shorter biography of this many-sided, remarkable man. A Short Life of Jonathan Edwards is not an abridgment of Marsden's earlier award-winning study but is instead a completely new narrative based on his extensive research. The result is a concise, fresh retelling of the Edwards story, rich in scholarship yet compelling and readable for a much wider audience, including students.

I particularly like the way the author compares the lives of Jonathan Edwards and Benjamin Franklin. It is an interesting account of men born in similar circumstances and education but who go on to live very different lives... one becoming one of the best known Christians of his day and the other choosing the modern teaching coming from Europe.
I downloaded it on my Kindle but purchased the paperback edition as a gift for a family member (who is a true theologian). I'd recommend reading Marriage to a Difficult Man to get a further account of the importance of his wife and children to his life.
In addition, unlike many historians, Marsden writes in a very engaging and enjoyable style. I was surprised at how much I just enjoyed reading this book. Highly Recommend.
Marsden's writing style is easy and flowing and so wonderful for just getting immersed into the story. Highly recommended.
