Format: Hardcover
This volume contains two major works of Jonathan Edwards: an unpublished text of a series of sermons he preached in 1738, know as Charity and Its Fruits, and his Two Dissertations. I. Concerning the End for Which God Created the World. . On the Nature of True Virtue, published post-humously in 1765. Together these writings set out the principles of Edwards' ethical thought.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By B. Marold HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWER on May 17, 2011
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Jonathan Edwards's Complete Works, Volume 8, published in 1989 by the Yale University Press, and edited by Paul Ramsey, is an early fruit of Yale's effort to publish the complete published and unpublished works of one of this country's two or three most important intellectuals (in the running with Herman Melville, Mark Twain, and Charles Sanders Peirce). The volume contains four principle components.

1. A 100 page editor's introduction by Ramsey. This is a monograph in itself and worthy of its charges.
2. Fifteen Sermons on Paul's 1 Corinthians, Chapter 13, principally on the nature of love.
3 Two Dissertations (Unpublished in Edwards's Lifetime
a. Concerning the End for Which God Created the World
b. The Nature of True Virtue

The volume ends with an unpublished letter, addressee unknown, and five Appendices

1. Fragments of Joseph Bellamy's copy of the Charity sermons.
2. 17 page draft of Edwards on Moral Sense
3. 33 page draft on "Heaven Is a Progressive State
4. 12 page draft on Infused Virtues in Edwardsean and Calvinistic Context
5. Defying and Assisting the Spirit

Before laying out $100 for a copy of this volume, please be aware that the complete volume, along with the complete text of 73 volumes completed so far, is available to browse, search and copy pages from:

[...]

What is unfortunate is that this volume contains one of Edwards's four most important works, "The Nature of True Virtue", and that the volumes containing two of the others, "Religious Affections" and "The Freedom of the Will" are in paperback for $20, cheap for books of that size.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Caleb Maskell on July 17, 2006
Format: Hardcover
Though it bears the aggregate title of "Ethical Writings," the texts and editorial commentary in this volume indubitably provide the best available way to gain a rich and broad understanding of Edwards' theological program. If you have to buy only one of the Yale Works of Jonathan Edwards series, I think this is it.
