    A great book to read with older kids I loved the high level overview of Edwards life and his emphasis on trusting so fully in the Lord This is a fictionalized biography so they do take a lot of liberties with ...

    Well, this book does sort of provide an outline of Edwards s life, so I ll give it that But with all the imaginative liberties the author took with dialogue, inner thoughts, and descriptive details, I d classify this squarely in the category historical fiction not biography or non fiction What s worse, however, is that the dialogue is so painfully anachronistic The characters openly discuss their deep appreciation for Mohican culture and the Indians connection with nature in way that sounds like it could have been pulled from a twentieth century National Park Service guidebook to native peoples And half the time, Edwards himself talks and prays with the diction and vocabulary of a modern evangelical preacher who just walked off the stage in a tight T shirt and wireless headset His prayers start with, Father God a phrase I ve only ever heard in a modern evangelical church , and characters talk about teenagers a word coined in the 1920s who accept Christ or rededicate their lives Spiders also keep showing up at convenient, but not very believable, moments as a theme to tie the events of Edwards s life together And all of these liberties might be fine if you re writing a novel But don t pitch it to me as a biography Even as historical fiction, it s awkwardly ahistorical.The transitions between chapters in Edwards s life are also abrupt and odd The story jumps between scenes, sometimes across many years, with little explanation, leaving me scratching m...

    I found this to be a very low resolution, incredibly cheesy introduction to Jonathan Edwards Best part about this audiobook was that it was free Perhaps I need to figure out who the audience is meant to be for this series, bec...

    Spiders The great theologian, Jonathan Edwards, had an obsession with spiders Maybe he did, but I find it hard to believe that he had such an obsession that his last words as he was dying were spoken to a spider This is written as a children s book and I guess...

    I really thought it was awful Now that may be because I ve read multiple biographies of Edwards, but this one played VERY fast and loose with the facts and made up lots of hypothetical incidents with Jonathan s childhood, courtship etc Sara Pierpont was unknown to Jonathan s mother until she showed up on the doorstep Jonathan forgot all about this young lady he d been courting for two years due to a fall Oh, and his amazing and brilliant answer to who was John Calvin is supposed to impress me At no point did I feel as though genius came through.It feels as though the author rea...

    As a disclaimer, this is the first audiobook I m logging here onto Goodreads I m hesitant about doing so, because I do not think that listening to an audiobook is the same as reading After doing it for this book, I can fully confirm that However, I do think that audiobook listening especially to stories and biographies can be really insightful Different than actual reading, but still nonetheless similar As a result, I will be using a new Audiobooks tab for my audiobooks that I ve listened to So as for this book, I enjoyed it It was a free audiobook on Christian audio last month It is clearly aimed at younger children And it isn t a ty...

    This was a very brief summary of Jonathan Edwards life The book was so short I read it twice He truly was a genius He had many of the characteristics of another genius, Leonardo DaVinci However, Jonathan was much structured and therefore completed many things He truly was a Christian who walked the talk He preached one of the greatest sermons ever, SINNERS IN THE HANDS OF AN ANGRY GOD This sermon should be listened to or read by every human being.He died an early death only 55 years ol...

    Not a very good introduction to Jonathan Edwards life It only told a few random stories and I told them in a very sensationalist way, playing up certain aspects of his personality and making up a lot of details that we do not know to make it sound dramatic.The title is America s Genius, but after reading this you really would have very little knowledge of why he is America s genius It was stated and a few places, but the bo...
