About the Author
Jonathan Edwards was born a little over seventy years after the first Puritan settlement of New England. In 1740 was the beginning of 'the Great Awakening', which would touch several places in the thirteen colonies of the fledgling nation. For Edwards, the Great Awakening years were exhausting times which brought him 'to the brink of the grave'. Besides the care of his own people, he was now itinerating widely to preach for other men. Correspondence multiplied, and yet somehow he was also preparing two of the most significant books ever written on the subject of revival, Distinguishing Marks of a Work of the Spirit of God, and Thoughts on the Revival in New England.

The consideration of heaven should serve as a warning to those who are not reconciled to God,for those who remain impenitent,their final landing place will not be in heaven,but in hell.The godly Pastor Theologian Biblically asserts that there are three worlds-1.This world-A world in which there is good and evil.2.Heaven-"A world of love without any hatred".3.Hell-"A world of hatred,where there is no love." Why does hell exist,for what purpose has God created it?(and exist it does,even though many in our generation do not believe there is such a place as 'A Literal Hell')-"it is a world prepared on purpose for the expression of God's wrath." What is the object of God's wrath? It is sin,which is the work of sinners.Who will be in hell?Unrepentant,unbelieving,unforgiven sinners.There was a popular saying 'God loves the sinner and hates the sin'(as if sin as an entity will be judged,but not sinners)-those who live in sin,a principle of evil has no being,it is the person who sins and rebels against God,that person(whose sins are not covered by the blood of Christ)will suffer eternally in hell under God's wrath and judgement.
Heaven-A world of love is taken from Jonathan Edward's classic work 'Charity And Its Fruits'.It is his exposition of I Corinthians chapter 13.His most well known sermon is 'Sinners In The Hands Of An Angry God',but he gives us here one of the best descriptions of heaven which stands alongside of John Bunyan's picture of heaven in 'The Pilgrim's Progress',two off the best descriptions of heaven that have ever been published.
