Jonathan Edwards is widely hailed as the greatest theologian in American history. In Edwards on the Christian Life, Dane Ortlund invites us to explore the great eighteenth-century pastor’s central passion: God’s resplendent beauty. Whether reflecting on the nature of love, the preeminence of Scripture, or the glory of the natural world, the concept of beauty stood at the heart of Edwards’s theology and permeated his portrait of the Christian life. Clear and engaging, this accessible volume will inspire you to embrace Edwards’s magnificent vision of what it means to be a Christian: enjoying and reflecting of the beauty of God in all things. Part of the Theologians on the Christian Life series.

This collection of essays explores the significance of practice in understanding American Protestant life. The authors are historians of American religion, practical theologians, and pastors and were the twelve principal researchers in a three-year collaborative project sponsored by the Lilly Endowment. Profiling practices that range from Puritan devotional writing to twentieth-century prayer, from missionary tactics to African American ritual performance, these essays provide a unique historical perspective on how Protestants have lived their faith within and outside of the church and how practice has formed their identities and beliefs. Each chapter focuses on a different practice within a particular social and cultural context. The essays explore transformations in American religious culture from Puritan to Evangelical and Enlightenment sensibilities in New England, issues of mission, nationalism, and American empire in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, devotional practices in the flux of modern intellectual predicaments, and the claims of late-twentieth-century liberal Protestant pluralism. Breaking new ground in ritual studies and cultural history, Practicing Protestants offers a distinctive history of American Protestant practice.

The Believer S Secret Of Christian Love

Author : Andrew Murray

Utilizing his extensive editing and compiling skills, L.G. Parkhurst, Jr. has combined Andrew Murray's small "Secret" book on brotherly love with excerpts from Jonathan Edwards' book Charity and Its Fruits. Murray's devotional style is evident and readers may be surprised to find devotional beauty and depth also from Edwards, known primarily as one of America's most important theologians and a fiery evangelist. Both Murray and Edwards show how the Spirit must bear the fruits of love in the Christian's life and how this is possible. Edwards' writing was probably accomplished while he was enduring devastating hatred and persecution in the community where he had pastored a church for twenty-three years. Believers will be encouraged to live up to the example of Christ.
