Insights from Jonathan Edwards for today.

The Christian church world-wide is growing significantly in size and influence. However, John Stott has commented that the greatest problem it faces is 'growth without maturity'. Expansion can be accompanied by lack of depth. Teaching and discipleship are still needed, perhaps as never before.

Josh Moody's conviction is that the American minister and theologian Jonathan Edwards (1703-58) provides us with a model for Christian faithfulness in today's world. Edwards is still regarded by many as America's most profound theological and philosophical thinker.

With freshness and accessibility, Josh Moody introduces us to Edwards' life, ministry and writings, engages with him on a range of important subjects, and demonstrates his continuing relevance through helpful and challenging applications for contemporary Christians and churches.
