User Review  - Paige - Goodreads

Well this is a scare tactic sermon I had to read for my American Literature class. I imagine this must have really scared a lot of people in the 1700's. Read full review

A humbling reminder of what should be, if not for the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ - clearly defines one end of the continuum. Read full review

About the author (1998)

Jonathan Edwards "is widely acknowledged to be America's most important and original philosophical theologian," and one of America's greatest intellectuals. Edwards's theological work is broad in scope, but he was rooted in Reformed theology, the metaphysics of theological determinism, and the Puritan heritage. Recent studies have emphasized how thoroughly Edwards grounded his life's work on conceptions of beauty, harmony, and ethical fittingness, and how central The Enlightenment was to his mindset. Edwards played a critical role in shaping the First Great Awakening, and oversaw some of the first revivals in 1733Ė35 at his church in Northampton, Massachusetts.
