The sermons of Jonathan Edwards : a reader by Jonathan Edwards( Book )

12 editions published between 1999 and 2008 in English and held by 591 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jonathan Edwards, widely considered America's most important Christian thinker, was first and foremost a preacher and pastor who guided souls and interpreted religious experiences. His primary tool in achieving these goals was the sermon, out of which grew many of his famous treatises. This selection of Edwards' sermons recognizes their crucial role in his life and art. The fifteen sermons, four of which have never been published before, reflect a life dedicated to experiencing and understanding spiritual truth. Chosen to represent a typical cycle of Edwards' preaching, the sermons address a wide range of occasions, situations, and states, corporate as well as personal. The book also contains an introduction that discusses Edwards' contribution to the sermon as a literary form, places his sermons within their social and cultural contexts, and considers his theological aims as a way of familiarizing the reader with the "order of salvation" as Edwards conceived of it. Together, the sermons and the editors' introduction offer a rounded picture of Edwards the preacher, the sermon writer, and the pastoral theologian

The sermon notebook of Samuel Parris, 1689-1694 by Samuel Parris( Book )

5 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 254 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Well in advance of the hysteria, Parris boldly predicted an invasion of devils, announcing that an "angry" God was "sending forth destroyers" loyal to Satan, "the grand enemy of the Church." The sermons in this volume reveal how Parris built upon these themes in later sermons to help shape and reinforce interpretations that isolated witchcraft as the root cause of the strange afflictions in Salem Village

in English and held by 174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cotton Mather, one of the leading intellectuals of colonial America, has often been overshadowed by his younger Puritan contemporary, Jonathan Edwards. Now, however, the publication of this first edition of Mather's magnum opus in the area of biblical knowledge focuses fresh attention on early New England's second most prodigious intellect. Mather's commentary takes the form of questions and answers on the whole biblical canon --Publisher's description

Divine husbandman : (on the parable of the sower and the seed) by Jonathan Edwards( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This second volume of Sermons by Jonathan Edwards on teh Matthean Parables contains a previously unpublished series of six sermons by Edwards on Jesus' parable of the Sower and the Seed, as found in Matthew 13:3-7. Edwards preached these sermons in 1740 immediatly dollowing the visit of George Whitefield to Edwards' church in Northampton, Massachusetts, in October of the that year. Not only does this series have a historical significance for its place in the Great Awakening, but it contains important pronouncements on the preacher's craft and the hearer's responsibilities. These sermons have been placed in the context of Edwards' preaching style and method, and framed by historical considerations. Prepared from the original manuscripts by the staff of the Jonathan Edwards Center at Yale University, this series represents a significant addition to the available Edwards corpus that will be of interest to scholars, religious leaders, and general readers."--Back cover

Fish out of their element : (on the parable of the net) by Jonathan Edwards( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This third volume of ''Sermons by Jonathan Edwards on the Matthean Parables'' contains a previously unpublished series of sermons by Edwards on Jesus' Parable of the Net, as found in Matthew 13. Edwards preached these sermons in 1746, after the major phase of the Great Awakening had passed in New England and during the very months he was completing and publishing A Treatise Concerning Religious Affections, his masterful statement on the true and false signs of true grace. Therefore, this series is significant for its place in Edwards' rich and evolving view of the nature of religious experience. To assist the reader, preceding the series are two introductions that describe Edwards' preaching style and method, and provide an historical context. Prepared from the original manuscripts by the staff of the Jonathan Edwards Center at Yale University, this series represents a significant addition to the available Edwards corpus that will be of interest to scholars, religious leaders, and general readers."--Publisher's description
