Along with the Introduction, this postscript is a bookend. It argues that the chapters in this volume have shown that the New England Theology is a source of important theological development in nineteenth-century American theology and that it had a significant international impact as well. The ideas of Edwards, the taproot of the movement, were transmitted, changed, and adapted in important respects by successive generations of adherents. Nevertheless the New England theologians influenced and shaped a century of Christian thought in North America and left an important legacy that is of continuing significance for theologians, historians, and scholars of religion and philosophy.
