5.0 out of 5 stars Lover of God, Thankful to Strachan and Sweeny., December 24, 2010
This review is from: Jonathan Edwards Lover of God (The Essential Edwards Collection) (Paperback)
Strachan and Sweeney's aim in "Lover of God" is to make Edwards more accessible so that the reader will "experience the joy of deepened theology and enlivened spirituality" (p. 21). They do not wish to supplant Edwards's original work but rather point us to them in order that "even a little effort in reading his original writings will yield a bountiful spiritual payoff" (p. 21). I have found "Lover of God" to do just those two things. By having a greater understanding of the greatest American Theologian/Pastor it has piqued my interest in his original works. In "Lover of God" Edwards is not written about as if he was free from sin or fault, but it is an honest attempt to display a man who struggled with sin, but also relied on Christ. Another aspect of "Lover of God" that I enjoyed was the "applying Edwards's life and ideas" sections at the end of each chapter. They helped me to think critically about Edwards and how I could learn from him. I am thankful that Owen Strachan and Doug Sweeney took the time to create this work and I highly recommend this to anyone interested in Jonathan Edwards, especially those who are intimidated by this great man.
