After Edwards

'The legacy of Jonathan Edwards was both profound and widespread. First there were the members of his family - his progeny was numerous. Then there were his disciples. Many Americans had in truth been awakened by the Great Awakening, and a steady stream had come to study at Yale under Jonathan Edwards Jr., and Timothy Dwight, grandson of Jonathan Edwards. His disciples were numerous as well. Prominent among them were Samuel Hopkins, Nathaniel Emmons, and Edwards Bellamy.'

Hughes Oliphant Old, The Reading and Preaching of the Scriptures in the Worship of the Christian Church Volume Six: The Modern Age (Eerdmans, 2007), 139.
