Item description for The Sermons of Jonathan Edwards by Jonathan Edwards...

Overview
Jonathan Edwards is primarily remembered today as a gifted and influential theologian. But in eighteenth-century America, his preaching resounded from pulpits throughout New England, sparking the flame of revival that became the "Great Awakening." As the fame of this Puritan pastor and preacher of revival spread far and wide, his sermons galvanized many of his listeners into reexamining their lives and faith. Ever alert to the dangers of the religiously complacent-those who only observed the surface requirements of religion-Edwards tirelessly proclaimed the overpowering majesty and grandeur of God, and humanity's hopelessness for moral improvement short of his grace. This stirring selection of 20 messages allows readers to experience the words that swept through this young nation with a message of repentance and a call to action.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Sermons of Jonathan Edwards?

Internal security  Jan 31, 2006
Jonathan Edwards does not provide for an easy read. I feel reading another group of sermons provided by Jonathan Edwards would be time better spent. In these sermons Jonathan Edwards tries to make the argument that a Christian needs to strive for a closer walk with God. My problem is that he does not remember the believer may be saved and sanctified, but not yet in his more perfect form as he will when he is in heaven. I agree to be saved one most accept Jesus as both Savior and Lord. If one does not believe in the Lord part, what does one to be saved from. This would ultimately mean a change of thought and behavior of the repented. But what is to made out of the behavior of the believer that is contrary to Gods will?

Sermons Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God
Justice of God in the Damnation

These two sermons bring out argument and thought that is lacking in today's pulpit. About man's unregenerate state and his deserving of Hell. He also has one sermon arguing how Christians follow Paul's example and another sermons to how the Christian is to follow Jesus example. Useful sermons indeed. The three Sermons I question are:

(1)Pressing into the Kingdom of God
(2)The Manner in which the Salvation of the Soul is to be sought
(3)Hypocrites deficient in the duty of Prayer

These sermons seem to works oriented.

The two most interesting Sermons are the eulogy of David Brainard titled True Saints, When absent From the Body Present With The Lord and a farewell sermon when he departed from North Hampton Church. In these two sermons are arguments for what a minister should be and how the local body of Christ is to be made up of repentant sinners.

To bad he does not leave room for failure in the Christian walk.
