The Unwavering Resolve of Jonathan Edwards

Dr. Steven J. Lawson
  • To present an example of intentional, faithful, and passionate Christian living, Dr. Steven J. Lawson paints a portrait of eighteenth-century pastor and theologian Jonathan Edwards, who structured his relationship with God by composing and following seventy 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' single-minded pursuit of God, Dr. Lawson sees an unparalleled example for modern Christians.
