The Unwavering Resolve of Jonathan Edwards
Jonathan Edwards, a Puritan pastor in Colonial America, is remembered for his theological works, his role in the Great Awakening, and his fiery sermons. But Edwards’ chief characteristic was his passion for God’s glory.
That pursuit was guided by seventy resolutions that Edwards set to paper as a young man. In those resolutions, Edwards expressed steely determination combined with heartfelt reliance on divine grace to order his life in ways that were pleasing to God and fruitful for His kingdom on earth.
In The Unwavering Resolve of Jonathan Edwards, Dr. Steven Lawson delves into Edwards’ writings to uncover the practical ways that Edwards sought to fulfill his resolutions. He then exhorts Christians of today to do likewise, living for God’s glory with resolute passion.
