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.
