About-

In April 1740, Jonathan Edwards, minister of Northampton, Massachusetts, preached a discourse on Hebrews 12:22–24 comprising eight sermons. At this point, he had been the senior pastor of that town for just over a decade, and had seen his congregation through the historic Connecticut Valley Awakening of the mid-1730s, when several hundred souls were reportedly savingly converted. This first volume of Sermons by Jonathan Edwards on the Church contains the previously unpublished Hebrews discourse, “Christians Coming to Mt. Zion,” preached on the very cusp of the transatlantic religious movement that would become known as “The Great Awakening,” the New England phase of which began later that year. In addition to the complete and original text of Edwards’ discourse, the volume includes two introductions that describe his preaching style and method and provide an historical context.

Endorsements & Reviews-

“This is an important addition to our printed collection of Edwards’s thinking on the church. It is a topic that has not been given its just due in the last decades of the Edwards renaissance. But this volume, led by Minkema and Kimnach, two of the world’s most knowledgeable experts on America’s theologian, is a goldmine for future exploration.”

—Gerald R. McDermott, Anglican Chair of Divinity, Beeson Divinity School
