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 complacentthose who only observed the surface requirements of religionEdwards tirelessly proclaimed the overpowering majesty and grandeur of God, and humanitys 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.
Jonathan Edwards (17031758) began his education at Yale College when he was thirteen years old. He served as pastor of the Congregational Church in Northampton, Massachusetts, for over twenty years. His published sermons were widely circulated in America and England. He also served as a missionary to native Americans, and he was called to be president of the College of New Jersey (Princeton) just prior to his untimely death.
"The title is fully descriptive of the book. Here are represented some twenty sermons by Jonathan Edwards with only a minimum of critical apparatus - some six pages of introduction which only on the last unnumbered page do you discover are by Patricia Klein, who has done a good job within the limitation of so few pages. . . . Here are twenty sermons to read and be challenged by. The selection is fair, including some of his most famous pulpit presentations and several sermons that Edwards chose to preach on more than one occasion. It includes both his first sermon and that delivered to the Northampton Church after it had rejected him as their minister following some twenty-three years of service."

I've have cancer of the colon that has spread to both lungs, stage iv, so I get to do a lot of reading these days. I must say that by listening to Jonathan Edwards, John Calvin, Martin Luther, Huldrych Zwingli, C. H. Spurgeon and other church fathers, I'm closer to God than I've ever been. God bless you all.

The font appears to be about 10 pt., but there is enough white space to make it very readable.
The only thing that I would add is an index of all scripture references.
I am altogether pleased with this purchase.
Jung Oh5 Stars Out Of 5September 13, 2010Jung OhWithout doubt, it is outstanding collection of the sermons in great wealth of puritan reform base. It is worthy to purchase for great reward.
Anthony Shuler5 Stars Out Of 5May 28, 2009Anthony ShulerThis book shows why in the days of the Puritans there were so many true converts and today there are so many false converts today. Jonathan Edwards preaches judgment in every sermon. He says some erroneous things here and there but overall this is a brilliant collection of sermons from the man who was probably the greatest American preacher in history.

No, this is not revised in today's language.
