Pursuing Holiness in the Lord
About: Pursuing Holiness in the Lord.
Holiness is something to be pursued, though never in our own strength. Here Jonathan Edwards explores the believer’s essential role in God’s work of sanctification. The three sermons made accessible in this volume—“The Character of Paul an Example to the Christians,” “Hope and Comfort Usually Follow Genuine Humiliation and Repentance,” and “The Preciousness of Time”—guide us past the rival pitfalls of lawlessness and works-righteousness.
T. M. Moore has divided these selections into thirteen brief chapters, added introductory remarks and subheadings, and concluded each chapter with questions to promote reflection and application.
"Once again God and his grace take center stage . . . as the great Northampton preacher leads us through three sermons showing how God is pleased to work out his salvation in the lives of those who love him."
—T. M. Moore, from the editor's preface
About the Author
Jonathan Edwards (1703–1758) served the Northampton Congregational Church in Massachusetts for twenty-three years, then missionary outpost to the Mohawk and Mohican tribes. In 1758, he became president of the College of New Jersey (now Princeton University), only to die a few months later due to an adverse reaction to a vaccination.
