Book Description

Jonathan Edwards was one of the few truly great theologians of the English-speaking world, an intellectual and spiritual giant. When he began his ministry at Northampton, Massachusetts, New England had drifted from the Puritanism of its founders. Resisting the current trend, Edwards preached the whole counsel of God, and God plainly honoured his ministry. Yet to all appearances his life ended in tragedy; voted out of his pastorate by the people of Northampton, he died of fever at Princeton, only two months after taking over as President of its College.

Apart from his contribution to the Church in his own lifetime, Edwards left posterity in his debt by his prolific writings. His sermons and treatises have a timeless character. Special interest attaches to this volume, containing one of his most analytical treatises on revival, Distinguishing Marks of a Work of the Spirit of God, and his justly famous Narrative of Surprising Conversions. The Narrative is both a detailed account of the famous revival of religion at Northampton in 1735 and a broad over-all Spiritual view and assessment of the work. It is hoped that this new edition will help further to familiarize evangelicals with one of their great forbears.
