Product Description

From the mind of one of America's greatest theologians, Jonathan Edwards, comes a powerful discussion about why God created the universe and everything that exists. It's a classic work that has transformed theological thought and has impacted individual lives like none other.

Now, this thought-provoking, paradigm-shifting modern adaptation of one of the most important theological works of all time challenges the pop-theological notions that God created our world because He was lonely or insufficient in Himself. Explore these truths through this updated version paraphrased especially for today.

Discover, through logically applied Scripture, the real reason God created man and the world. And see why many of Christianity's greatest modern thinkers count it among the most important and life-changing books they've ever read.

Publisher's Description

It is entirely possible that God could have existed without the universe, and without humans, for all eternity. But for some reason, He decided to create anyway. What inspired Him to start the human story in the first place, and how should the answer to that question affect the way we view our lives? Few Christians ever stop to seriously consider these deepest-of-all deep questions.

Jonathan Edwards explains, in his original dissertation: God’s inherent predisposition to spread out His truth, goodness, and beauty motivates everything He does. So, His decision to create our universe was motivated not by a desire or need for us, but by a desire to glorify Himself.

Ben Stevens’ remarkable new adaptation brings Edwards’ powerful arguments to life in fresh, contemporary language. In addition, thought-provoking questions for discussion or reflection invite readers to engage with the concepts and begin to apply them.
