Reviews - What do customers think about The Sermons of Jonathan Edwards: A Reader?
A DIVINE AND SUPERNATURAL LIGHT Nov 20, 2007
I purchased the book for one sermon A DIVINE AND SUPERNATURAL LIGHT
I was amazed about how many of the sermons were right one with where I am at in my life.
Gods word is time less and this is a clear translation of what God has to say to his people.
18th Century Purpose Driven preacher Oct 22, 2007
Do not get this book if you're pursuing modern or postmodern theology. Do not get this book if you're looking for gimmicks.
If you want to get down to basics ... salvation and sin, heaven and hell ... read this collection.
The original 'fire & brimestone' sermon ... "Sinners in the hands of angry God" is worth the price of the book if you're unfamiliar with Edwards.
You can see the evangelical power of this mighty pastor grow in this chronological collection.
Edwards is a gift to us, well worth rediscovering.
The Sermons of Jonathan Edwards : A Reader IS A VERY GOOD BOOK TO READ Sep 21, 2005
Jonathan Edwards sermons are inspiring, leading to Christ. 18 century religious american genius. Easy to read. Worth to buy. Highly recommend.
As always, excellent! Oct 12, 2003
Edwards is excellent in presenting the gospel. His sermons are quite substantive and always pointing the reader (or hearer in his days) towards God. Should you desire a great book of some of Edward's greatest works, this is the book for you.
Beware of nutcase reviews of this book. Sep 5, 2003
John Calvin and Jonathan Edwards are, without question, two of the greatest theologians in the history of the church. Who is Mike DeSario?
