About the Author

Donald S. Whitney received a DMin from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in Deerfield, Illinois, and a PhD in theology from the University of the Free State in Bloemfontein, South Africa. Since 2005 he has been Professor of Biblical Spirituality and Associate Dean at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky. Prior to this he taught for ten years at Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Kansas City, Missouri. With twenty-four years of pastoral experience, Whitney is the author of seven books, including Spiritual Disciplines for the Christian Life.


"Donald S. Whitney's, `Finding God in Solitude' arrives amidst a growing interest in Jonathan Edwards' devotional life, both private and public. Whitney's work taps into several important veins of Edwards scholarship, including his role as a minister and his `God-centered' theology. Whitney has both a historical and a contemporary approach, seeking to understand Edwards in context while exploring how he can and cannot be used as a resource for the pious life and for ministry today.
Whitney's driving question is, What was the relation of Edwards' piety to his pastorate, how were they related, and how can we detect that relation? He finds, above all, an Edwards steeped in `Christian solitude', seeking personal experience with God, but out of this came a ministry defined by a God who was beautiful and communicative. Whitney's use of primary and secondary sources is broad yet discriminating. He has a sound knowledge of scholarship on Edwards, and effectively utilizes Edwards' personal writings, correspondence, sermons, and pastoral writings. What Whitney has done, therefore, is to provide the first full-length exploration of Edwards' personal pious practices." (Kenneth P. Minkema, Executive Director, Jonathan Edwards Center, Executive Editor, The Works of Jonathan Edwards, Yale University)
"Piety was central to the life of Jonathan Edwards, America's greatest Evangelical theologian. Moreover, he was an heir to one of the richest traditions of Christian piety in the history of Christianity, namely that of Puritanism. So it is a surprise that relatively little by way of critical scholarship has been done on this area of his life. This new work by Donald S. Whitney admirably helps fill this gap in Edwards studies. Here, in so far as Edwards's extant corpus allows, we have a detailed reflection on key aspects of Edwards' inner walk with God. And as such, it is a fabulous introduction to not only Edwards, but to the spirituality of late Puritanism and early Evangelicalism." (Michael A.G. Haykin, Professor of Church History and Biblical Spirituality, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, Kentucky; Director of the Andrew Fuller Center for Baptist Studies; Author of Jonathan Edwards: The Holy Spirit in Revival and Co-Author of Travel with Jonathan Edwards)
