Publisher Description

This volume gathers the evangelical works Jonathan Edwards wrote to inspire, describe, and promote the series of religious revivals in New England in the 1730s and ’40s that collectively became known as the Great Awakening. A Faithful Narrative of the Surprising Work of God is his vivid firsthand account of “the Little Awakening” in Northampton, Massachusetts, in 1734–35. In The Distinguishing Marks of a Work of the Spirit of God and Some Thoughts Concerning the Present Revival, Edwards defends the authenticity of the revivals against detractors. The justly famous “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God” joins six other sermons, four newly transcribed from Edwards’s original manuscripts, and four letters describing the revivals and dealing with their aftermath. With a map of the Connecticut River Valley, detailed notes explaining Edwards’s theology and identifying his many scriptural references and allusions, and a chronology of Edwards’s life and of the larger Awakening, this is a definitive collection of a seminal American writer.
