IT'S A CALVINIST COUNTRY:

Jonathan Edwards' works made available for free as interest in Puritanism surges (Jonathan Merritt, Feb 3, 2015, RNS) 

The collected works of Jonathan Edwards, the 18th-century preacher and one of America's most famous theologians, are now available for download thanks to Logos Bible Software. But for those who don't want to cough up $1,289.95 to purchase them, there's good news: The Jonathan Edwards Center at Yale Divinity School lets you view them online for free. [...]

The release of Edwards' work is more than a historical contribution. It comes at a moment of renewed interest in the preacher, especially among conservative evangelicals and "New Calvinists," mostly evangelicals who are acolytes of Edwards' brand of Calvinist theology.

According to Minkema, there are more than 4,000 books, articles, dissertations and other writings on Edwards, and they are increasing in frequency.

George Marsden, professor emeritus of history at the University of Notre Dame and author of "Jonathan Edwards: A Life," has also noticed newfound interest in Puritan thinkers like Edwards among some modern Christians.

truly great book.
