The Essential Edwards Giveaway!


Today I’m giving away some great books—The Essential Edwards Collection by Owen Strachan and Doug Sweeney!

Jonathan Edwards was a colonial, philosophical preacher and theologian. To many he stands as the preeminent theologian and thinker of the American tradition. This series of five books covers Edwards’ life and major writings opening an accessible window into the heart and mind of the man credited for starting the First Great Awakening.

By way of introduction, presentation and reflection, the authors unearth the choicest treasures of Edwards’ writings for lay people to discover. Eminently readable and understandable, The Essential Edwards Collection proves you do not need to be a scholar to enjoy and benefit from the writings and life of Jonathan Edwards.

This set includes all five books of The Essential Edwards Collection:  Jonathan Edwards Lover of GodJonathan Edwards On Beauty,Jonathan Edwards On Heaven and HellJonathan Edwards On the Good Life, and Jonathan Edwards on True Christianity.

    On Beauty

  • Concerned

    I am pastor in New England…  I have been growing increasingly concerned in recent months about the superficial “faith” of some of the people under my care.  I’m honestly not sure how to handle it.  I know Edwards (a New England pastor himself) struggled with the same issue.  True Christianity seems like it could be a help to me.

    For my first read, it would be True Christianity. As we try to become all things to reach our neighbors we must keep what it truly means to follow Christ central in our thinking.
