Item description for The Salvation of Souls: Nine Previously Unpublished Sermons on the Call of Ministry and the Gospel by Jonathan Edwards by Jonathan Edwards, Richard Bailey & Gregory Wills...
Overview In this collection of nine sermons, eight of which have never been published before, Jonathan Edwards calls ministers of the Gospel to focus their attention on the salvation of souls. He insists that the ministry of the Gospel is a task given to them by God. Therefore ministers are not free to choose their duties - they are called to exercise their office faithfully as preachers of the Gospel. They must not shrink from denouncing sin and should not depend upon their own wisdom. Rather, they must preach the Word of God and depend upon him for the salvation of their hearers. Financial or other worldly gain should never be motivations in the ministry but rather a concern for the advancement of the kingdom of God and the well-being of souls.

Classic Edwards Apr 1, 2008
~The Salvation of Souls: Nine Previously Unpublished Sermons on the Call of Ministry and the Gospel~ is some great sermons from the Puritan divine Jonathan Edwards. Edwards was a colonial American Congregational preacher, theologian, missionary to Native Americans and president of Princeton University. Edwards so often acclaimed for his fire-and-brimestone preaching with the 'Sinners in the Hands of An Angry God,' could also speak of the "sweetness" of Christ. Edwards conceptualized a perennial Christian nostrum: God is most satisfied in us, when we are most satisfied in Him. Jonathan Edwards calls ministers of the Gospel to focus their attention to the salvation of lost souls. "A minister that has the presence of God with him in his work, is the very greatest blessing that God ever bestows upon a people, next to himself." He made a clarion call for rigorous, Scriptural preaching, which was emphatic about the holiness and sovereignty of Almighty God. In the discharge of their duties, ministers must be faithful. Edwards had no compunction for pastors who were bullied by their congregations into speaking words flattering to their vanities and desires.
Edwards did usher in the Great Awakening and many revivalist styles of preaching alongside George Whitefield. What separated them from subsequent generations of gaudy revivalists and pietists is that they stressed the integral nature of sound doctrine.
