About This Book

A sermon preached by Jonathan Edwards to his Enfield, Connecticut, congregation in July 1741, `Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God` is particularly noted for its vivid descriptions of the torments of Hell and mankind's natural depravity. At the same time, it was also an appeal to man's need for salvation and a reminder of the agonies that awaited the unreformed. Coming during the height of the Great Awakening — a period of religious fervor in the first half of the eighteenth century — the homily was at once regarded by many as the greatest ever given on American soil and vehemently attacked by others as puritanical `fire and brimstone.` One thing seems certain: it made a lasting impact on American Christianity.
Accompanying this landmark document are sermons by nine other influential Puritans of the sixteenth to eighteenth centuries, among them Thomas Shepard's `The Parable of the Ten Virgins,` Cotton Mather's `An Hortatory and Necessary Address,` John Cotton's `The Way of Life,` as well as sermons by John Winthrop, Increase Mather, Jonathan Mayhew, Thomas Hooker, Peter Bulkeley, and Samuel Willard.
Enlightening and thought-provoking, the volume will serve as primary source material in many American history and literature courses.
