THE SERMONS OF JONATHAN EDWARDS
From 1720-1758
Jonathan Edwards

COMPLETE SET OF SIX HARDCOVER VOLUMES FOR NEARLY 30% OFF.

"The Jonathan Edwards Project is the first of its kind; a comprehensive, exhaustive effort to produce an online archive of all of Edwards' sermons, treatises, letters and musings to serve the needs of anyone who cares to know the man. To date, no other university or institute has attempted to transcribe, computerize and then post online the complete works of any one historical figure. . . . Though he may never attain the rock-star status of George Washington, with the Yale project, Edwards will live forever." - Adrian Brune, Hartford Courant

Concerning Volume 25 we read: This wide-ranging volume covers the final fifteen of the thirty-three years that Jonathan Edwards preached and includes some of his greatest sermons; including his Farewell Sermons to his Northampton congregation. The period is defined by Edwards' inventive strategies to improvise during the delivery of his sermons. Considering dependence on the written text in the pulpit to be a serious failing, he devised a double-columned, outlined format for his sermon manuscripts and continued to use it for the rest of his life. Sermons from this period also include those preached to Mahican and Mohawk Indians at the mission post of Stockbridge, Massachusetts.

READING "RELIGIOUS AFFECTIONS"
A Study Guide to Jonathan Edwards' Classic on the Nature of True Christianity
Craig Biehl

"Have you ever put abook down and thought, 'Wow, that's deep. I wish I had a friend who could walk me through this book and explain it point by point'? Craig Biehl has done precisely that. Furthermore, he has done it for one of the most important books ever written: 'Religious Affections'. No one since the apostles had more insight into authentic godliness than Jonathan Edwards. But his books can be difficult to read. Biehl's study guide helps you to understand the historical situation of Edwards's day. It walks you through Edwards's teachings in easy-to-follow outlines mingled with choice quotes from Edwards. After each section he presents several questions for personal meditation or small group discussion. I regularly assign 'Religious Affections' to my students and heartily recommend Biehl's book as a companion to all who would read,understand, and apply Edwards's masterpiece." --Dr. Joel R. Beeke, President, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary, Grand Rapids, Michigan

"This is a very helpful study guide to one of the most important spiritual texts inall of history. If you read 'ReligiousAffections' with patience, care, and fervent prayer, using this simple textual aid, you will find yourself reflecting on the state of your heart, mind, and soul like never before in your life. I guarantee that you will never be the same." - Douglas A. Sweeney, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

"With exacting rigor and care, Jonathan Edwards' Treatise Concerning Religious Affections provides both a diagnosis of the Great Awakening and good medicine for what ails Christian piety. In this unique study guide, Craig Biehl here dispenses twenty manageable and carefully referenced doses drawn from the Treatise for the health of true religion in the church of the Great Physician. " - R. Daniel Knox, Pastor, Grace Orthodox Presbyterian Church, Sewickley, PA

"Few books have the profound depth and insight as Jonathan Edwards's 'The Religious Affections'--which is both good news and bad. The good news is that the book well repays reading and study. The bad news is the book can be rather daunting. Craig Biehl's study guide comes to the rescue. This deft guide by a capable scholar will lead you by the hand (and head and heart) to a clear understanding and deep appreciation for this classic text by Jonathan Edwards." - Stephen J. Nichols, Research Professor of Christianity and Culture, Lancaster Bible College, Author, 'Jonathan Edwards: A Guided Tour of His Life and Thought'

THEOLOGY: Explained and Defended
4 Volume Hardcover Set
Timothy Dwight

Timothy Dwight (1752-1817) was the grandson of Jonathan Edwards. He was both brilliant and godly. This is the first volume in his Magnum Opus: THEOLOGY: EXPLAINED & DEFENDED in a Series of Sermons.

"Dwight's theological sermons are worthy of careful study. Their clear, scriptural guidelines and experiential warmth promote practical Christianity. Read with discernment, they will still feed the soul today and challenge us to godly living in Christ Jesus."

Joel R. Beeke, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary, Grand Rapids, Michigan

Volume One contains 38 sermons on the Existence, Attributes, Decrees and Works of God. Each sermon stands complete in itself, but they together exalt the glory of God in a way intended to humble and bless.

Volume Two contains sermons 39-86 with the main focus on Christ our Mediator, and the Doctrines of Justification and Regeneration.

Volume Three contains sermons 87-131 and begins with four sermons on Regeneration and concludes with 41 sermons on the Perfect Law of God.

Volume Four contains sermons 132-173 and begins with the final sermon on the 10th Commandment and proceeds to examine both the ordinary and extraordinary Means of Grace before concluding the entire series with 11 sermons on the Last Things, including death, judgment, heaven and hell.

Volume # 24 - The "Blank Bible"
Jonathan Edwards, edited by Stephen J. Stein

In 1730, Jonathan Edwards acquired a book-like, leather-bound manuscript containing an interleaved printed edition of the King James Version of the Bible. Over the next three decades, Edwards proceeded to write in the manuscript more than five thousand notes and entries relating to biblical texts (though paradoxically he called the manuscript his 'Blank Bible'). Only a fraction of the entries has ever been published. This volume presents a complete edition of the 'Blank Bible' accompanied by an informative introduction, multiple appendices, and an extensive index.

THE WORKS OF JONATHAN EDWARDS
2 Volume Hardcover Set
Jonathan Edwards

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 Edwarads, several smaller pieces printed originally in a separate form, and a memoir by descendant Sereno E. Dwight.

"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

Life and Theology of Jonathan Edwards (DVD)
Dr. Sam Storms

Jonathan Edwards (1703-1758) is widely acknowledged to be America's most important and original philosophical theologian. Most know of his sermon Sinner's in the Hands of an Angry God, however, that is usually the extent of their knowledge. Edwards was passionate about his devotion to the Lord Jesus and his word and this was expressed in of two themes that Edwards never relented -- the absolute sovereignty of God and the beauty of God's holiness. Edwards' published works were primarily designed to defend the Puritan doctrine of Calvinist orthodoxy and his influence on Congregational and Presbyterian theology was profound. His extensive notebooks reveal an interest in philosophical problems for their own sake, however, and his deployment of philosophical arguments in his private papers and published works are both sophisticated and frequently original. Dr. Sam Storms, director of Enjoying God Ministries has given the body of Christ a great resource tool in this teaching series on DVD - The Life and Theology of Jonathan Edwards.

"This is one of the best introductions we have ever seen on the life & theology of the great puritan preacher and theologian Jonathan Edwards." - NiceneCouncil.com

THE SERMONS OF JONATHAN EDWARDS: A Reader
Jonathan Edwards; Edited by Wilson H. Kimnach, Kenneth P. Minkema, and Douglas A. Sweeney

Jonathan Edwards, widely considered AmericaÆs 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.

Wilson H. Kimnach is professor of English at the University of Bridgeport. Kenneth P. Minkema is executive editor of The Works of Jonathan Edwards. Douglas A. Sweeney is assistant professor of church history at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School.

REVIEWS:

"Informed general readers will greatly enjoy Edward's clear style and keen intellect, and from this they can be directed to the complete Works published by Yale."- Library Journal

"This valuable collection of 15 sermons Jonathan Edwards preached between 1722 and 1751 to both his English and his Indian congregations includes some of his most famous, as well as five sermons that have not been previously published. . . . This arrangement serves to introduce Edwards's sermons as the primary agent of interpreting religious experience and guiding souls under his pastoral care from the earliest stages of conversion, through instruction and discipline, to the final vision of heaven. . . . Highly recommended to general readers, undergraduates, and graduate students." - Choice

"Before the critical editions provided by the Yale series, only 70 of the sermons had been published. The sermons project, therefore, represents a major step in the advancement of Edwards scholarship, and this present selection provides a handy introduction to this vast world."- Christopher J. Viscardi, Theological Studies

"The Sermons of Jonathan Edwards is an excellent companion to A Jonathan Edwards Reader, both of which are ideal for classroom use and general scholarly reference. . . . [A] welcome addition to the growing library of Jonathan Edwards scholarship."- Ecclesiastical History

A SWEET FLAME
Piety in the Letters of Jonathan Edwards
Edited and Introduced by Michael A.G. Haykin

"A Sweet Flame introduces readers to the piety of Jonathan Edwards (1703-1758). Dr. Haykin's biographical sketch of Edwards captures the importance the New England minister placed on Scripture, family piety, and the church's reliance upon God. The remainder of the book presents 26 selections from various letters written by Edwards, two written by family members at his death, and an appendix drawing upon Edwards's last will and the inventor of his estate. In this collection of letters Michael Haykin offers you a behind-the-scenes look into the life of Jonathan Edwards. As you look, you will see him dealing with sick children, trying to make sense out of the conflict with his Northampton congregation, and reveling in the serendipities of friendship. Read these letters and you will find Edwards becoming your own 'most obliging and affectionate friend in the labors of the gospel.' " --Stephen J. Nichols

"Jonathan Edwards was not only a brilliant theologian, but also a devoted husband, father, pastor, and friend. Underneath it all, he was a man passionate about living in joyful obedience to God. In this highly recommended collection of letters, skillfully edited and annotated by historian Michael Haykin, Edwards's warm-hearted piety shines through on every page, giving us a glimpse into the heart and mind of this servant of God." --Justin Taylor

"A rare privilege awaits you. In these pages, you are about to meet one of the great Christians of all time: Jonathan Edwards! Your guide is reliable. Dr. Haykin has gathered some of the choicest letters of Edwards. In them, you will discover the insights of this noble leader on 'Piety,' up close and personal. Piety? That is the way we tap the resources God provides, to live for His glory and help others find them, too. Before going on to the high ridges of thought, your escort will sketch the chief events of Edwards' life. Then, in the letters, you will find Edwards' views on piety, in his own words. Treasures for all ages are here. Edwards tells how he found heaven within, GodÆs mighty presence, enabling him to meet every challenge and be more than conqueror. Best of all, he had the radiant hope of being at home with the Lord in the life beyond. Bringing the eternal into practical situations is no mean feat. Edwards, however, accomplishes just that. We see his role as a child, husband, parent, pastor, mentor, and educator with pungent thoughts on conversion, prayer, the Bible, revival, evangelism, and other vital topics. Each fruit of the Spirit is to be found here, expressed in Edwards' own words, demonstrated in his life. The selections were chosen wisely. We are all indebted to Dr. Haykin for his outstanding service in making these classics available in such an attractive format. Now, to savor them!" --George S. Claghorn
