Item description for Jonathan Edwards Knowing Christ by Jonathan Edwards & Iain H. Murray...
Overview Jonathan Edward's is widely recognized today as perhaps the greatest of all North American thinkers and philosophers. Such was the depth and power of his intellect that annually new books and articles on his work come into print. But Edward's was supremely a Christian thinker. is great goal in life was to know and glorify God through Jesus Christ and to encourage others to do the same. Consequently it is in his sermons that we find the real heart of the man. Here he is thinker, herald, pastor and theologian all in one.
This selection of ten of Edward's' sermons provides a fine sample of the God-centeredness of his ministry. In them he shows the seriousness of man's sinful condition, the riches of Christ's grace, and the marvels of the Christian life. To read Edward's is, almost invariably, to be led into the presence of God. That was the great aim of his preaching, and echoes of it will be heard in reading these pages.

Reviews - What do customers think about Jonathan Edwards Knowing Christ?
Outstanding Sermons Jan 10, 2003
A lot of great lessons on God's relationship to Man. He has kept God central in his writtings and there is a lot of valuable theological ideas in this book that I think would benefit students of the Scriptures on such as the importance of the role of repentance in Salvation; how God manifests first of all man's sinfulness and guilt before he is shown mercy and grace. Thus making the gospel, turly good news! Highly Christ exalting material in this book. People don't write materials with this kind of caliber anymore- or so it seems.
