This chapter explores the role that Edwards’s editors played in publishing books such as the first editions of A Faithful Narrative in 1737, Freedom of the Will in 1754, and Original Sin in 1758. Edwards’s distance from Boston required that he secure the services of Thomas Foxcroft, one of the town’s ministers, to act on his behalf as a literary agent and editor and to oversee the presswork. The chapter also shows how some of Edwards’s books were edited without his knowledge or control in places like Magdeburg (Germany), Utrecht, and Edinburgh by individuals such as Benjamin Colman, Isaac Watts, Gerardus Kuypers, Hugh Kennedy, the German Pietist Johann Adam Steinmetz, and John Wesley, some of whom wanted to promote Edwards’s revivalism without the inclusion of certain Calvinistic doctrines.
