Publisher's Description

Jonathan Edwards stands tall in America’s historical memory.  A great philosopher, a great preacher, a great theologian.  Edwards was a complex and gifted person, one who defies easy characterization.  He intimidates us, and we distance ourselves from him because at the most fundamental level, he’s just not like us.

It is of course true that Jonathan Edwards was a combination of many rare things:  an exceptional intellectual, a masterly preacher, a cavernous theologian, a devoted husband and father, a college president, and much more.  But all of these roles flowed out of one simple and essential reality:  Jonathan Edwards was a Christian.  He was a believer who followed Jesus Christ in repentant faith.  He loved God, and he sought to live for Him.

This book celebrates the unique life and ministry of Jonathan Edwards.  It peels back the cover of his life, to show us what a life devoted to our sovereign Lord can look like.  It causes us to use our own God-given gifts for the salvation of sinners, the strengthening of God’s church, and the glory of God.  You do not need to be a scholar to enjoy and benefit from the story and rich lessons about Edwards' life.
