Rev. Jonathan Edwards1

M, #14577, b. 1702, d. 23 February 1758
     Rev. Jonathan Edwards. President of Princetown College.1 He was born in 1702.2 He married Sarah Pierpont.3 Rev. Jonathan Edwards died on 23 February 1758.4

EDWARDS JONATHAN, president of Princetown College, in New Jersey, was the son of the rev. Timothy Edwards, pastor of the church in Windsor, Connecticut. He was born, 1702; graduated at Yale College, 1720; he was soon chosen tutor, for which office he was well qualified; being then distinguished for his abilities and learning. While he resided at college, he applied his mind closely to the study of divinity; and very soon after he began to preach, he was invited to settle at Northampton. Mr. Stoddard, who was then minister of the church, was his grandfather, and had lived to old age. It gave the highest satisfaction to that venerable man, to have one for his colleague and successor, whose gifts and graces were so extraordinary; and for whom he must naturally care more than for any other candidate whom the people might call. Mr. Edwards was, indeed, as a son with a father, the staff of his age, as well as a blessing to the people. Mr. Stoddard died, 1729. The church had been in peace and harmony. Both their ministers were highly esteemed at home and abroad. The practice of baptising children of persons making a profession of religion, who did not join in full communion, had not been called in question. Unhappily for the town of Northampton, a difference of opinion arose upon this subject; Mr. Edwards was fully persuaded in his own mind, that none but the children of communicants have a right to baptism; and it was his desire to bring the church over to the same way of thinking. He had thought much upon the subject, and in 1748 he published a quarto pamphlet, entitled, "an humble inquiry into the rules of the word of God concerning the qualifications for a full communion in the visible christian church." The rev. Solomon Williams wrote an answer to this ; to which Mr. Edwards replied. The dispute occasioned many divisions in churches, and the contention was so great in the church at Northampton that it issued in a separation. A council was called, which advised to a dismission. He resigned the pastoral office in 1750, and had an "honourable quietus." He was then invited to settle in the church at Stockbridge. The minister of that town was supported from the funds of the London society. Mr. Sargeant had been their missionary to the Indians; they elected Mr. Edwards to succeed him, and the inhabitants of the town joined heartily in the invitation. In this retired situation he made himself useful to the people both Indians and English, who sat under his ministry; and he had a fine opportunity to indulge his mind in those profound speculations, which had given him a distinction among the greatest men of the age.
When president Burr died, he was chosen to succeed him. He had good reasons for not accepting the place, but a sense of duty prevailed over every other consideration, and he removed to Princetown in New Jersey. In this station, which he adorned by his reputation, and where he might have been very useful if it had pleased Heaven to spare his life, he continued but a short time. He died of the small pox, Feb. 23, 1758. His death was universally lamented. Though many differed from him in theological opinions, yet all respected his piety and learning. As a preacher he was pathetick, serious, experimental; he had a small voice, and therefore was not popular among that class of people who think that to be zealous, and to cry aloud, is the same thing. But his performances in the pulpit were peculiarly acceptable to persons of serious views. They were plain, practical and adapted to the various capacities of his hearers; which is very remarkable, considering how much he wrote and thought upon doctrinal subjects. He was certainly a great controversial writer; most of his writings discover this turn of mind, and he has written very largely and ably upon many theological subjects. His book upon the "freedom of the will" is the most celebrated; this gives him a name among the greatest metaphysicians. Several professors of divinity in the Dutch universities sent him their thanks for the assistance he had given them in their inquiry into some doctrinal points, having carried his own further than any author they had ever seen. This book is written in opposition " to Arminian principles; " and the "Pelagian heresy;" Dr. Priestly, however, speaks highly of it, and says he should suppose an Arminian wrote it. The doctor is well known to be a high Supralapsarian, or Necessarian, which he will not allow to be a sentiment exclusively confined to Calvinistick divines. President Edwards' book is not so clear upon the subject as some others upon that side the question. The style is somewhat intricate, but it is a book of deep research; it discovers great application of mind, with uncommon strength of intellectual powers. This has been said of it, that it not only proves him a man of great genius, but lt the superiour force of argument has baffled all opposition. His "treatise upon the affections" is another work of great celebrity, and has been read more than his "essay on the freedom of the will." He published many works, and left many in mss. Since his death have been printed, "his defence of the doctrine of original sin;" a volume upon the "nature of virtue;" the "history of redemption," &c. All his works have been collected lately, in eight volumes, of which there is a very good American edition, with "memoirs of his life." President Edwards left ten children. Of his posterity there are now several who are very conspicuous among the literary and famous men of New England. Eliot: Biographical Dictionary of New England, p. 171.2
