MINKEMA, KP. "Informing of the child's understanding, influencing his heart, and directing its practice": Jonathan Edwards on education. Acta theol. [online]. 2011, vol.31, n.2, pp.159-189. ISSN 2309-9089.
This article examines the role of education in Jonathan Edwards' life and legacy, both the education he received in early eighteenth-century New England and his activities as a teacher, among the other vocations he followed. In particular, the methods and principles he employed as a teacher, both of English and Indian children and young people, are distinctive. Next, the essay turns to some selected figures within the Edwardsean tradition to show pedagogical changes and continuities.
