Publisher's Summary

Jonathan Edwards (1703-1758) is American's greatest theologian and philosopher. One of the key figures in the 'Great Awakening,' he entered Yale at 12 and was head tutor at 21. Edwards pastored congregations for over 30 years and earned a reputation as a consummate rhetorician and master preacher. Shortly after becoming President of Princeton University he died of complications from a smallpox inoculation. He is buried in Princeton cemetery.

Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God was preached on July 8, 1741 in Enfield, Connecticut. It is considered the most famous sermon ever preached in American history. The vivid imagery Edwards employed made some tremble and cry out for mercy. Others fainted. Five hundred people were converted that day.

For believers and unbelievers

The guts it would take to preach this message is on par with the OT Prophets. Believers can get a deeper comprehension of what they have escaped through the wrath absorbing atonement of Jesus Christ who gave Himself a ransom for many which should lead to greater thankfulness, gratitude and humility. Unbelievers will hopefully be awakened to the reality that it is appointed unto men once to die and then the judgment, why face certain judgment when salvation from it is a free gift of Gods Grace in Christ.

Rough

Edwards pull no punches. This is probably consistent with his time, I doubt this type of tone is heard very much at all today.

Sobering

In this day and age of moral depravity, this is a sobering listen. Max McLean has a musical voice and refined accent. This is a call to morality.
