Summary

In collaboration with Mohr Siebeck and an international team of experts in early American studies, Baker Academic releases the second of ten projected volumes in Cotton Mather's Biblia Americana. This volume offers Mather's comments on Joshua-2 Chronicles. Mather's commentary takes the form of questions and answers on the biblical canon. Cotton Mather, one of the leading intellectuals of colonial America, has often been overshadowed by his younger Puritan contemporary, Jonathan Edwards. Now, however, the publication of Mather's magnum opus in the area of biblical knowledge focuses fresh attention on early New England's second most prodigious intellect. This work will be treasured by students of American church history, colonial-era Puritanism, Christian responses to the Enlightenment, American intellectual development, and the history of biblical interpretation. It is a must-have acquisition for research libraries covering these disciplines.
