Sweeney’s Booknotes: Travel with Jonathan Edwards

Travel with JE CoverMichael Haykin with Ron Baines, Travel with Jonathan Edwards: A God-centered life, an enduring legacy (Leominster, U.K.: Day One Publications, 2013)

This is a wonderful travel guide to the world of Jonathan Edwards. It is historically-informed, biographically-detailed, and designed for use by church historical tourists. It is part of series of travel guides by Day One Publications, a British Christian publisher.

In eight short chapters, this little vade mecum printed on beautiful, glossy paper describes numerous places of interest, offering contact information (mostly street addresses and phone numbers), 150 color photographs, maps and other helps. It is a must-have for any serious Edwards fan. When used in tandem with the Jonathan Edwards Tour on Yale’s website, it is sure to get you just where you need to go as you journey in the footsteps of Edwards.

I recently lent this to a former student visiting from Korea who was headed to Edwardsland. He returned it full of gratitude for the guidance it provided. Highly recommended.
