"His pen was active in all the religious controversies of his day, and indeed his ability to define authoritatively such a variety of theological issues led Dr. Erskine of Edinburgh to remark that the British Isles had produced no such critics on Divinity in the eighteenth century as Dickinson and Edwards."--Dict. of Amer. Biography, V:301-2. Dickinson was a staunch supporter of Whitfield's revival efforts and intimate friend of David Brainerd. Sprague: Annual Amer. Pulpit, III:16 states "It may be doubted whether, with the exception of the elder Edwards, Calvinism has ever found an abler or more efficient champion in this country, than Jonathan Dickinson."
