Here is a map I’ve tinkered with marking some of the major locations in the life of the great theologian and pastor Jonathan Edwards (1703-1758). Thanks to Ken Minkema’s authoritative chronology and Tony Reinke’s helpful notes.

Feel free to add corrections or further details to the map. I’ve made it public.

Other historical Google Maps I’ve done are Augustine’s World and Jesus’ Final Week.

I hope this encourages others to try their hand at something similar using the best historical resources.

    Great idea! I teach World History at a Christian school and see the potential here for some interactive assignments. The Augustine map will certainly come in handy when they read Confessions! Thank you for sharing!

  2. Got some time on your hands, I see.

    Just kidding! This is pretty cool and a good way to have a new glance at history.

    I love this! I’ve been working on a google map of historic sites in church history in NYC, and in leading some tours for those in our church. It’s far from complete (

    Looks like I’ll need to add a “Tour of Jonathan Edwards’ Life” to the calendar as well.

    Thank you!

  4. This is helpful and interesting. We will pass it on here, where we are trying to keep JE alive in Nashville, TN.
