A nice selection of Edwards' sermons
on July 24, 2011
This book has a good assortment of Edwards' sermons. It includes Sinners in the Hands of An Angry God, which has great historical significance to the First Great Awakening, which helped to spur the American Revolution. This book has great spiritual depth and shows insight that's rarely seen in today's sermons. It also has great historical significance as Edwards' is America's only theologian and a very important part of America's past.
It can sometimes be a little hard to get into Edwards' writings, but these sermons really aren't dry once you're acquainted with his style. I did find the forward to be a little too long and somewhat out of date, though it included some interesting information on his life.
