Jonathan Edwards is one of the greatest Protestant figures of all time. And a library of Christian classics would be incomplete without the work of this great American theologian.
No one has been able to write about the theology of religion from a biblical and evangelical perspective like Edwards. His powerful intellect was on a par with his fervent heart. Thus, in this unique character in the history of Protestantism, Edwards' fervor and spiritual passion mixed with rational wisdom gIve us an unparalleled work that is philosophically lucid as well as biblically coherent. Perhaps no one like him has known how to combine the rigor of sound biblical hermeneutics with the prevailing philosophy of his time. Edwards has had an incalculable influence on Anglo-Saxon Protestantism. A scholar named Erskine brought the work of Edwards to English Baptists, thus shaping the thought of the men who had gathered to pray since 1784 "for the general revival and spread of religion." It was these English Baptists who republished "An Humble Attempt to Promote Extraordinary Prayer" by Jonathan Edwards in 1789 and sent William Carey to India in 1793. At least one volume of Edwards went with Carey on this historic journey.
In this volume the reader will find his famous 70 resolutions as well as nine of the most relevant sermons that the great American theologian preached throughout his life:
SINNERS IN THE HANDS OF AN ANGRY GOD
GOD GLORIFIED IN MAN'S DEPENDENCE
HYPOCRITES DEFICIENT IN THE DUTY OF PRAYER
THE IMPORTANCE AND ADVANTAGE OF A THOROUGH KNOWLEDGE OF DIVINE TRUTH
THE EXCELLENCY OF CHRIST
THE SOVEREIGNTY OF GOD IN THE SALVATION OF MEN
A DIVINE AND SUPERNATURAL LIGHT, IMMEDIATELY IMPARTED TO THE SOUL BY THE SPIRIT OF GOD, SHOW TO BE BOTH A SCRIPTURAL, AND RATIONAL DOCTRINE
TRUE GRACE DISTINGUISHED FROM THE EXPERIENCE OF DEVILS
The goal of the Library of Christian Classics, edited by Abba, is to recover and provide Hispanic people with the wisdom God gave our ancestors in the Christian faith. It's the first time many of these titles have ever been published in Spanish, while others have been recovered and edited to be better understood in the 21st century.
