Summary

Jonathan Edwards could arguably be called America’s greatest theologian. His ministry in eighteenth-century New England was one of the chief means that the Spirit of God used to spark revivals in Northampton and the surrounding area — and eventually what is known as the Great Awakening. These sweeping revivals brought many souls to Christ and Edwards’ ongoing ministry and extensive writings continued to have an impact on many others, both in America and throughout Europe.

He was known for his logical mind and warm devotion to the Lord. His exposition of Scripture remains a source of powerful edification for the church. This book contains 120 excerpts from the writings of Edwards arranged in a daily devotional format, and is a good resource for personal devotions or as an introduction to the thought of Edwards.

His insights into God’s Word are down to earth, practical, and devotional. Each devotion is based on a Scripture verse and Edwards is always careful to draw your attention to the text to be fed by God’s Word, not by man’s thoughts and imaginations.

This book makes a perfect gift to introduce people to the heart-searching writings of Jonathan Edwards or the Puritans in general. You will find comfort for the soul, encouragement and exhortations for the heart, and practical instruction for the mind.

Testimonials

An invaluable resource that I have to share!

Robert Boik Jr.

After listening to a segment about Jonathan Edwards on Renewing Your Mind, I ordered the Devotions from the Pen of Edwards Book. I have no regrets, for this collection of Edwards works has helped me to see God and my Christian walk in a whole new light. I am thankful to have this book in my collection and reference it quite frequently in my studies. In addition, I cannot help myself when it comes to sharing excerpts of this book with others, whether I am at Bible study, class or family gatherings. It is a treasure chest of solid doctrine that is as applicable to us today as I'm sure it was for the people of Edwards day.
