Jonathan Edwards (1703–1758) was a preacher, theologian, and philosopher of the 18th century. Edwards is widely acknowledged to be America's most important and original philosophical theologian, and one of America's greatest reformed preachers of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
This work is the substance of two of Edwards' earliest printed lectures in 1738. Edwards was endeavoring to respond to encroaching Arminianism in his Northampton congregation, as well as an abiding antinomianism in the colonies since the days of Anne Hutchinson. This classic book demonstrates Edwards' lucid reasoning and solid Reformed and Biblical approach to the crucial issue of salvation. Edwards follows Scripture showing that Christ is the center of the Gospel, and the doctrine of justification the centerpiece of evangelism.
