Pure Genius

I have several books by Jonathon Edwards. To those not famaliar with him and not accustomed to reading literature from the 1700's, be prepared to re-read the material over and over again until you get to understand how these Puritans thought. Sentences will run on forever, with a number commas, parenthesis and brackets all within a single sentence. You will soon come to find that these sentences add to the richness and depth of the subject in question and have the ability to better ilucidate difficult concepts. However, remember that the definition of a sentence is a complete thought. Back then, the minds of those who pioneered this land could really think, and Jonathon Edwards was one who was on a whole other level. I suggest getting

a copy of "The Freedom of the Will" It's all about free will. I never read ANYTHING about free will that was more thorough in its investigation. No stone is left unturned, nothing is left to chance. Remarkable!!
