‘To read the work of a Puritan doctor of the soul is to enter a rich world of spiritual theology to feed the mind, heart-searching analysis to probe the conscience, Christ-centred grace to transform the heart, and wise counsel to direct the life. This series of Pocket Puritans provides all this in miniature, but also in abundance.’ — SINCLAIR B. FERGUSON
According to Jonathan Edwards, heaven will be a world of holy love. God himself is the source of this love, and in heaven he will impart it perfectly to all his people. Edwards unfolds the nature, expression, effects, and enjoyment of this best of all the gifts God ever bestows on those who believe.
About the Author
Jonathan Edwards (October 5, 1703 – March 22, 1758) was a preacher, theologian, and missionary to Native Americans. Edwards "is widely acknowledged to be America's most important and original philosophical theologian," and one of America's greatest intellectuals.
Anything by Jonathan Edwards cultivates one's thinking and inspires with its unique and surprising insights into whatever topic he is treating. The present booklet is one of his sermons that was originally collected into the larger work, Charity and its Fruits. The book is truly pocket-size, fitting easily into a back pocket, jacket pocket, or purse pocket. The portability must have been the marketing niche for the book, since it is easy to find as part of the Charity and its Fruits book, or in Edwards' collected works, or for free to read online. I did enjoy having the booklet with me to carry around and read, but if you don't really need or want to have something pocket-sized, you might want to save your money and use it to buy Charity and its Fruits.
