    Reread this to teach my middle-school worldview class. It is a lovely read. I love them.

    The writing style was a little difficult like a collection of facts with random dialogue thrown in than a biography. Certainly not written like her novel Idellete. But the information about the Edwards was fascinating and worth the read.

    I love reading about J. Edwards, which upsets me to give this 1 star. But this book was absolutely horrible (I actually didn’t finish it). If you want to read a good book/bio on Edwards, read both bios by George Marsden. This book seemed to be random facts, not an actual story. Also, I was bothered by a lack of citation.

    I enjoyed the stories and quotes, as it gave me a more well-rounded view of Jonathan and Sarah Edwards. 2 of 5 stars due to poor writing quality and lack of citations and sources. The information presented was fascinating, and the stories/facts presented are familiar, but the lack of support was disappointing - especially since the majority of the information could have been sourced. Perhaps this book wasn't intended to be scholarly in nature, but it would have been a big asset to credibility.

    Although this book was not well written and I skim-read large parts of it, I'm really glad I read it as I learned a lot about the Jonathan Edwards family and the legacy they left. The last couple chapters talked a lot about how they dealt with a rapid succession of deaths in the family and it was very convicting and inspiring to see their godly response.
