Sinners in the Hands of Angry God is considered the most famous sermon ever preached in American history. Jonathan Edwards delivered this message on July 8, 1741, in Enfield, Connecticut. Many who heard it trembled and cried out for mercy. Others fainted. Five hundred people were converted that day.
This will overwhelm your soul and consume your thoughts with the wonderful wrath and majesty of God- a beautiful and accurate teaching of God's word!
Tonic too strong for insipid seekers
That one of the greatest thinkers in American history (Father of the First Great Awakening, one time President of Princeton, author of Religious Affections, a center at Yale University dedicated to him ) could be so lightly dismissed by contemporary listeners says more about the sorry state of American Christianity than just about anything I could imagine. Simply one of the greatest sermons in Christian history. Too bad folks don't "get it".
