Daniel Whedon is considered one of the most influential theologians in the struggle between Calvinism and Arminianism in early America. His book:  “The Freedom of the Will as a Basis of Human Responsibility and a Divine Government” was a direct response to the famous “Freedom of the Will” book written by Jonathan Edwards.  That book, together with his article in Bibliotheca Sacra (1862) “Doctrines of Methodist” are often-studied contributions to that debate.  

Whedon is also author and editor of an excellent Bible commentary of 5 volumes, originally entitled titled "A Popular Commentary on the New Testament."  The set was expanded with 9 more volumes of Old Testament work done under other authors, with Whedon acting as editor.  He devoted 25 years to this commentary.

The Oxford Index reports that Whedon was converted under the preaching of Charles G. Finney, while serving as a law clerk in New York. He joined the Methodist Episcopal Church, “…being drawn to its doctrine of free will that made salvation a possibility for all.” Whedon went on to serve as Professor of Ancient Languages and Literature at Wesleyan University in Middletown, Connecticut, and as a minister in the Methodist Episcopal Church in various cities throughout the Northeast.  He also served as  Professor of Logic, Rhetoric, and History at Michigan University. He was editor of the Methodist Quarterly Review for more than twenty years.

Dr. Whedon is well-attested for his incisive, vigorous style, both as preacher and writer.
