Jonathan Yeager’s task in this brief monograph is to correct the portrait of the eighteenth-century divine Jonathan Edwards “as a recluse, working silently in his study for hours as he prepared his sermons and theological treatises for print single-handedly” (27). Instead, we learn of a set of book trades actors who bring Edwards (1703-1758) to a British and American public.
