Widely recognized as a great theologian, an influential preacher and a prolific writer, Jonathan Edwards played a prominent role in helping to spark the spirit of revivalism known as the Great Awakening in the eighteenth-century America. Edwards' sermons, while intellectually engaging, were also accessible to the common people and often generated highly emotional responses. His foremost desire was to help people transform from mere believers in Christian doctrine to converted Christians who were moved to action by the principles of their belief.This two-volume collection of Edwards' works features important sermons of the Great Awakening as well as Edwards' memoirs and other essays. First published in 1834, here is what makes this new edition of The Works of Jonathan Edwards the best available: More readable. This edition has larger, more readable type than previous editions.More complete. This edition contains all matter included in the first collected American edition, various original extracts from the diary and papers of Edwards, several smaller pieces printed originally in a separate form, and a memoir by descendant Sereno E. Dwight.For anyone interested in the roots of Christianity and revival in colonial America, The Works of Jonathan Edwards is a fundamental resource. Jonathan Edwards . . . was among the noblest and ablest Christians of his age, and can now be seen, two centuries after, as one of the greatest theologians ever given by God to his church. As a saint and scholar, evangelist and educationalist, pastor and teacher, missionary and metaphysician, he showed a grasp of the grandeur of God s sovereignty and the glory of divine grace equaled only by men of the caliber of John Owen and John Calvin. J. I. Packer Edwards is widely recognized as being probably the greatest American theologian. His writings, though sometimes difficult, are often inspiring. Full doctrinal agreement is not a prerequisite to profiting from this great man of God. Christianity Today"… (mais)

Edwards was the greatest American theologian ever. You can spend $2000 on his complete works from Yale with its liberal footnotes and analysis and includes Edwards writings on non-theological issues, or you can get the meat of his theological genius for much less and in two handsome clothbound volumes published by the Banner of Truth. This is the best bang for your buck.

I should note that Hendrickson also has a two-volume edition of Edwards' works but they are inferior in quality and don't hold up as well as the Banner of Truth edition. ( )

The more I read of Edwards the better I understand why so many so highly prize his writings. Every pastor should familiarize himself with these works. ( )

Far more experiential reading than the more academic Puritans. See particular "Concerning the Revival of Religion". ( )
