Description

Though largely associated with the Great Awakening, Jonathan Edwards leaves an amazing legacy as a theologian and preacher. He left a remarkable body of work, including the six sermons featured in this collection on the sovereignty of God: “It was of the sovereign pleasure of God, that he contrived a way to save any of mankind, and gave us Jesus Christ, his only-begotten Son, to be our Redeemer.”

Sovereignty 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 six sermons:
- God Glorified in Man’s Dependence (including Advertisement to the Reader, Respecting the First Sermon)
- God’s Sovereignty in the Salvation of Men
- Wicked Men Useful in their Destruction Only
- A Divine and Supernatural Light
- Praise, One of the Chief Employments of Heaven
- A Farewell Sermon (including Edwards’ Preface)

In 1757, he became president of the College of New Jersey (Princeton University).
