Jonathan Edwards (October 5, 1703 – March 22, 1758) was a preacher, theologian, and missionary to Native Americans. Edwards is widely acknowledged to be America's most important and original philosophical theologian, and he’s considered one of America's greatest intellectuals. Edwards's theological work is very broad in scope, but he is often associated with his defense of 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. For example, Edwards was genuinely committed to the promotion of gender equality. His interest in Eve has been interpreted by scholars as an indication that he harbored proto-feminist views:

Edwards played a very critical role in shaping the First Great Awakening, and he oversaw some of the first fires of revival in 1733–1735 at his church - First Church - in Northampton, Massachusetts. Edwards delivered the sermon "Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God", a classic of early American literature, during another wave of revival in 1741, following George Whitefield's tour of the Thirteen Colonies.

Edwards is also widely known for his many books: The End For Which God Created the World; The Life of David Brainerd, which served to inspire thousands of missionaries throughout the 19th century; and Religious Affections, which many Reformed Evangelicals continue to read today.

This edition of Edwards’ Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God is specially formatted with a Table of Contents and over a dozen images of the great theologian.

    this was a good writing

    at first it seems like this really is a picture of a God that looks on you and finds you repulsive because of your sin. that you have no hope and hell is waiting , longing to envelope you, that you have been judged and found stained with sin. but you will notice that regardless of how bad that sin is in God's eyes, the fact remains, His love for you is stronger than his hatred for your sin,His holiness judges your sin as absolute as to evil and sets you at odds with His very nature,but while he abhors that sin, it is His hand that still holds you from being released into that judgement. and that is where hope lies- He does not let go.
    His love is stronger than your sin.

    one big rant

    This sermon is evidence of how theology can warp a brilliant mind. Mr. Edwards is convinced that all humans are dispicable creatures that deserve hellfire. God, who didn't need to save a soul, decided to have mercy on a few of them. These folk are going to heaven. What happens in heaven? Well, besides meeting the Big Guy in the Sky, we also get a lovely view of the dammned frying in hell. Mr. Edwards says he will leap for joy at the sight of it. Big deal. This sermon is one long rant on God and hellfire. Many have read it in American literature classes, which is where it belongs. Read the sermon for its historical value or for insight into the human religious imagination--nothing more.
