Publisher's Summary

To present an example of intentional, faithful, and passionate Christian living, Dr. Steven J. Lawson paints a portrait of 18th-century pastor and theologian Jonathan Edwards, who structured his relationship with God by composing and following 70 heart-searching resolutions. Edwards, often remembered for his sermon Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God, is revealed here as a man with a heart for God's glory above all things. To help himself pursue that goal, he composed a set of resolutions to guide his conduct in all areas, from his battle against sin to his use of time. In Edwards' singleminded pursuit of God, Dr. Lawson sees an unparalleled example for modern Christians.

Great Book with Great Encouragement

Jonathan Edwards is a theological hero to many but here his life, ministry, and theology personally challenge every Christian. Especially encouraging was Edwards' battle against particular sins.

Insightful

What I appreciated most about this work is Lawson's approach by following along the timeline of Edwards' resolutions. The greatest benefit was gaining insight to the spiritual development of Edwards and see how human the man really was. His struggles in sanctification give us all hope that God will see us through to the end.
