Jonathan Edwards can be hard to pin down. He was an intellectual, yet had a pastor’s heart; he preached graphic sermons on hell, yet wrote stirring essays on beauty; he was a product of his time, yet a reformer. In short, he was complicated, as all of us are.
However, it can be difficult to know where to begin when it comes to reading his works and sermons because his collected works total more than 75 volumes. So, Owen Strachan and Douglas Sweeney have distilled Edward’s works in this volume, providing vital background information and excerpts of what is most significant from his works.
In studying Edwards, you will discover something more valuable than biographical details. More than learning about the pivotal moments of his life, more than grasping the major themes of his thought, you will encounter God through Jonathan Edward’s eyes. And in so doing, you will find yourself adoring, worshiping, and delighting in a God who is bigger than you dared imagine and closer than you could have dreamed.

You've heard his name, you've probably heard your pastor quote him, but who is he really?
250 years later, Jonathan Edwards, Americas consummate pastor-theologian, continues to capture the attention of Christians around the world. Yet Edwards left us over 1,200 sermons and thousands of pages of other publications, not to mention the literal thousands of books that have been written about Edwards since he died. Where does one even begin? Thats why we created The Essential Jonathan Edwards. It serves as a perfect introduction to Edwardss life and thought. It explores Edwards day-to-day life, and his views on beauty, true Christianity, heaven and hell, and the good life. Strachan and Sweeney strike the perfect balance between necessary background information and giving Edwardss own works room to speak.
Whether youre an Edwards fan already or only know Edwards because of "that Angry God sermon," this book will lead you to drink deeply of Scripture and gaze longingly at God.
