Summary

Jonathan Edwards was a colonial, philosophical preacher, and theologian. To many he stands as the preeminent theologian and thinker of the American tradition. This series of five books covers Edwards' life and major writings opening an accessible window into the heart and mind of the pastor-theologian. They unearth the choicest treasures of Edwards' writings and present them to lay people for discovery and personal transformation. The Essential Edwards Collection proves you do not need to be a scholar to enjoy and benefit from the writings and life from Jonathan Edwards. This volume focuses on Edwards' view of God, God's communication of beauty, and God's desire that Christians recognize His beauty both in Scripture and the world. Edwards is presented as a "God-intoxicated" man, captivated by God's glory and beauty, and committed to sharing that beauty with others.
