Oxford University Press

This chapter presents excerpts from Jonathan Edwards's letter to Thomas Prince, published in the Christian History on December 12, 1743. The Christian History was a weekly magazine established by Prince and his son to document the revivals of the early 1740s taking place throughout America and Britain. Its goal was to provide evidence that the Great Awakening in America and the Evangelical Revival in Britain represented an extension of God's work. In his letter to Prince, Edwards assessed the spiritual vitality of his parish at Northampton, Massachusetts, and compared the spiritual fervor of Northampton in the early 1740s with the earlier period of 1734–1735.
