    About "Jonathan Edwards"

    1. Jonathan Edwards

      Librarian Note There is than one author in the database named Jonathan Edwards.Jonathan Edwards was the most eminent American philosopher theologian of his time, and a key figure in what has come to be called the First Great Awakening of the 1730s and 1740s.The only son in a family of eleven children, he entered Yale in September, 1716 when he was not yet thirteen and graduated four years later 1720 as valedictorian He received his Masters three years later As a youth, Edwards was unable to accept the Calvinist sovereignty of God However, in 1721 he came to what he called a delightful conviction though meditation on 1 Timothy 1 17 From that point on, Edwards delighted in the sovereignty of God Edwards later recognized this as his conversion to Christ.In 1727 he was ordained minister at Northampton and assistant to his maternal grandfather, Solomon Stoddard He was a student minister, not a visiting pastor, his rule being thirteen hours of study a day In the same year, he married Sarah Pierpont, then age seventeen, daughter of Yale founder James Pierpont 1659 1714 In total, Jonathan and Sarah had eleven children.Stoddard died on February 11th, 1729, leaving to his grandson the difficult task of the sole ministerial charge of one of the largest and wealthiest congregations in the colony Throughout his time in Northampton his preaching brought remarkable religious revivals.Yet, tensions flamed as Edwards would not continue his grandfather s practice of open communion Stoddard believed that communion was a converting ordinance Surrounding congregations had been convinced of this, and as Edwards became convinced that this was harmful, his public disagreement with the idea caused his dismissal in 1750.Edwards then moved to Stockbridge, Massachusetts, then a frontier settlement, where he ministered to a small congregation and served as missionary to the Housatonic Indians There, having time for study and writing, he completed his celebrated work, The Freedom of the Will 1754.Edwards was elected president of the College of New Jersey later Princeton University in early 1758 He was a popular choice, for he had been a friend of the College since its inception He died of fever at the age of fifty four following experimental inoculation for smallpox and was buried in the President s Lot in the Princeton cemetery beside his son in law, Aaron Burr.

    1. He was a bit difficult to understand in some places and I didn't really get into him the way that I did for say: Martin Luther. Nevertheless, there are some excellent piece of theology in here and some very good quotes. I especially liked his 'Farewell Sermon' where he talked about the duties of the family. I thought it was particularly pertinent to our current society where family does not seem to be as important as it used to be.This quote about summed it up for me: "Every Christian family oug [...]

    2. What an excellent book. I greatly enjoyed reading this book. If you are a fan of Johathan Edwards (or even if you aren't), I highly recommend that you read this book.This book is a collection of seven JE sermons along with an Introduction that gives a kind of background and biographical sketch of Edwards.Sermon I: GOD Glorified in Man's Dependence’Tis a more glorious effect of power to make that holy that was so depraved and under the dominion of sin, than to confer holiness on that which befo [...]

    3. If you love great sermons, this must be added to your reading list. As I read "Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God," I could tell why people responded to this sermon with such great passion. You can still feel the Holy Spirit working as you read this sermon and many more. "Ruth's Resolution," was another great sermon that really spoke to me as I read it.This is not easy reading because we have become imbeciles when it comes to the English language. Edwards, being led by the Spirit, was able to [...]

    4. The rating is purely based on this version of the text. The digital rendition had line breaks and page breaks that were unnatural to read. The Sermons themselves, this was the second time I have read these works and enjoyed them again. Highlights include Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God and The reality of Spiritual Light.

    5. Fabulous book!I am sure the modern evangelical church would have nothing to do with Jonathan Edwards. He was too plain spoken and serious for most congregations. There were no jokes and far too much doctrine. Also his sermons were much too long for the modern Christian. I consider him to be a very great preacher,

    6. Three sermons were really good; two seemed to state the obvious; and one was very heavy-handed and downright oppressive. I have more of a mixed appreciation for him now- we are less likely to revere people the more we get to know them!

    7. Tough but rewarding readI knew "Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God" and his Resolutions, but nothing else about Edwards. If you read this, make sure you read the explanatory notes that go along with each sermon. They give you really valuable context for each.

    8. Awesome expository preaching and easier to read than I thought. Read Edwards to better understand how we can fear the God of wrath yet delight in the same God of love.

    9. Interesting read, I listen with a public domain audio version I got on Librivox and it helped reassure me of my Faith and confidence in my Hope in God's love, Plan and redemption of Humankind
