In Pursuit of Authentic Faith

Jonathan Edwards has been deemed “America’s most important religious figure” and “America’s greatest theologian” by many scholars. Interest in his theology, and working to recapture his life and ministry, has continued to grow over the past century. Yet one may wonder, what a 18th century Puritan pastor and theologian might have to say to 21st century Christians.

Edwards’ ministry seems to have had one thru line: Authentic Faith. He desired deeply for his congregation to grow in their faith, in the knowledge and love of their God, through authentic means. He pushed strongly against the nominalism of his day, and would likely have similar things to say to us today.

The resources of this page are offered as a way of engaging with our topic and Jonathan Edwards in perhaps new and deeper ways. They serve to prepare our minds and hearts for the upcoming conference.
