Jonathan Edwards is regarded as many as the greatest mind America has ever produced, and he is held up as an excellent example of a pastor-theologian. Even so, many people's familiarity with Edwards does not extend beyond his famous sermon "Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God."

On this episode, we speak with Dr. Jeremy Kimble about the life and writings of Jonathan Edwards and discuss what Christians can still learn from him today.

On This Episode We’ll Discuss:

  • A biographical sketch of Edwards' life and ministry
  • Why you need to read more than "Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God"
  • Edwards' key role in the First Great Awakening
  • What Edwards was like as a pastor
  • An overview of many of his major written works and where you should start
  • What Jonathan Edwards' lasting legacy has been
