Edwards in the Hands of A Contemporazing Editor

Jonathan Edwards and his classic sermon "Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God" is rich and deep in its portrait of God in his holiness and graphic in its portrayal of man's end because of his sin. It has much to offer contemporary persons who tend to relativize biblical teaching on sin and its due consequence. But given that it was originally written in July of 1741, the archaic language has been a barrier to reading Edwards for many. As a result, many are missing out on what this godly theologian has to share.

Well my good friend Jason Dollar has taken this barrier out of the way. He has just finished updating the sermon into contemporary English. If you have never read it, then this is a good place to start and a good opportunity to be introduced to one of the most influential pastor theologians in American history. You can find it here.
