This chapter looks at the reception of Edwards among self-professed “experimental Calvinists” such as Richard Lovelace, John Piper, Tim Keller, John Gerstner, and the Banner of Truth Trust. It also contrasts this theological and devotional use of Edwards to the scholarship produced by evangelical academics on Edwards and his followers, such as Mark Noll, Allen Guelzo, George Marsden, and Douglas Sweeney. Although the religious and scholarly uses of the New England theology differed, they also reveal how Edwards continued to sustain certain evangelical hearts and minds.
