About the Book

I have been wishing aloud for years that professional psychologists would take a look at Edwards, helping us think about his life—and what can be learned about it today—from a mental health perspective. Dr. Hedberg has done just that. Of course Edwards is now in heaven, so conjectures about his psyche ought to be made with great care. Still, cautious, humble hypothesis about his inner life and the lessons it affords for people seeking better health can lead to useful conversations that bring healing to the soul. Whether or not you feel like Edwards, who was an ordinary man with extraordinary gifts for sensing the work of the Spirit of God, I pray that God will use this book to make you whole.

—Douglas A. Sweeney, PhD, Jonathan Edwards Center, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School I enjoyed learning about the biblical principles that Jonathan Edwards lived by. I also believe these principles are still relevant today! A thought-provoking book.

—DelAnn Miller, a seventh-generation Edwards (Burr) descendant

Dr. Hedberg has shared from his passion for Jonathan Edwards some unique experiences as a psychologist, which are a delight to read.
