Though largely associated with the Great Awakening, Jonathan Edwards leaves an amazing legacy as a theologian and preacher. Wrestling in his day with the Enlightenment and the Age of Reason, he faced the emerging climate of humanistic rationalism over the teaching of a personal and loving God. He battled the problem of spiritual deadness by recognizing the necessity of a personal religious experience and by embracing the supernatural work of the Holy Spirit to awaken and illuminate the heart.
Jonathan Edwards left a remarkable body of work, including the seven sermons featured in this collection on the "excellency of Christ." Christ Exalted Sermons of Jonathan Edwards is a fine sampling from this renowned preacher. Each sermon is a brilliant and personal invitation to know God through both our intellect and our affections--compelling us to open our hearts to the sweet love and joy available to us in our life in Christ.
This collection includes the following seven sermons:
- Safety, Fullness, and Sweet Refreshment in Christ
- The Excellency of Christ
- Jesus Christ the Same Yesterday, Today, and Forever
- Christ Exalted
- True Saints, When Absent from the Body, Are Present with the Lord
- Christ, the Example of Ministers
