Lecture 9, Jonathan Edwards:
So very often, popular media and modern academia portray the preachers of early America as hell, fire, and brimstone, Bible-thumping simpletons who had no knowledge outside their religious convictions. But those who are committed to embracing that caricature have never been properly introduced to Jonathan Edwards. Who is this early American preacher? What did he contribute to the church that we can benefit from today? In this message, Dr. Sproul introduces us to the man who has been acclaimed as the greatest intellect ever produced on American soil—Jonathan Edwards.
