Today is Jonathan Edwards’ birthday. He would have been 311 years young.
He was a preacher of God’s gospel, a loving husband, a witty philosopher, a forceful intellectual, and a strong theologian grown from Puritan soil. We remember him for his sermon, Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God, and the 70 Resolutions that shaped his life. He was largely involved in the greatest revival of American history and instrumental in the spread of Reformed Theology.
To celebrate his birthday, here is a wallpaper rollup. They were published this past year, featuring quotes from Edwards’ resolutions. Each post has two quotes to chose. (For the upcoming Wednesday Wallpaper, we will feature Jonathan Edwards himself.)
