“Among other things, [Jonathan] Edwards challenges the commonsense view of our culture that the material world is the ‘real’ world. Edwards’ universe is essentially a universe of personal relationships. Reality is a communication of affections, ultimately of God’s love and creatures’ responses.”

George M. Marsden, JONATHAN EDWARDS: A LIFE (New Haven, 2003), page 503.
