Arguably, one of the greatest theologians that America has ever produced, Jonathan Edwards combined a rigorous mind with a deep love for Jesus Christ. Altogether Lovely presents several sermons preached by Edwards on the loveliness of Jesus Christ. Sermons including “God the Best Portion of the Christian,” “The Excellency of Jesus Christ,” “Christ Exalted,” and many others emphasize the beauty to be found in the Savior and give us a glimpse into the warm, personal devotional life of Edwards.
The nine sermons by Edwards that comprise this volume all have as their chief theme some aspect of the glory or excellency of Christ. It was Edwards’ belief that once a sinner had seen the “glory of God in the face of Jesus” (II Corinthians 4:6), that sinner (after conversion) would ever see Christ as the most desired object above all others. To this end, he preached these nine messages. Over two and one half centuries later, they are as powerful and fresh today as they were when Edwards preached them.
