For some people, reading 18th century North-American English can be very difficult, especially if English is not ones native language. Therefore, some will benefit from an updated version of Edwards work.The purpose in a sort of “translation” of this sermon is to pass on the biblical message that Edwards so masterfully communicated in his time for people today, allowing the original message to ring clear and connect with both the hearts and minds readers.Edwards divided this sermon into six parts, answering a series of questions drawn out from a passage in the book of Hebrews. He intended to show how theology is of the utmost importance, not only for ministers and theologians, but for everyone else as well. He made it clear that the main source of knowledge in theology is the Bible and everyone can benefit from learning it.Endorsements“Penn Tomassettis carefully abridged and paraphrasedChristian Knowledge by Jonathan Edwards is contemporary,relevant, and equips one to grow intellectually and spiritually.”– Adriaan C.
