Publisher's Description

What is the good life that we so often hear talk of in our modern age?

Is it cars that drive fast, houses that resemble castles? Is it unbounded sexual pleasure, unrestrained personal gratification of all one's desires? Is it quiet and solitude, individual removal from the storm and thunder of modern society? Or is it obedient Christian faith that causes spiritual corpses to burst forth with godly passion and holy worship that transforms one's own life, one's environment, and one's eternal destiny?

This other way of life proceeds from an ancient book that lifts life in this age and all mothers to another plane. This is the truly good life, the path plotted for the steps of mankind by almighty God. It involves sacrifice, and hardship, and hard work. It means self-denial, self-abasement, and an others-centered mindset. It is radically God-centered and deeply rooted in Scripture. This, and no other path, offers the souls of humanity lasting happiness.

For Jonathan Edwards, submission to God and His will was the path to true fulfillment and the good life.  Easily accessible and readable, you do not need to be a scholar to enjoy these insights about Jonathan Edwards and his writings.
