Jonathan Edwards

‘In twenty-nine years David Brainerd (1718-1747) made a deeper and more lasting impression on the world in which he lived than most men make in a long lifetime.

Born at Haddam, Connecticut, converted, expelled from Yale in his junior year, a student of divinity under Jedediah Mills, a missionary among the Indians of Eastern United States, sickened and died in the home of Jonathan Edwards whose daughter he loved; such appear to be the bare facts of his life.
