This year, get to know the true Jonathan Edwards—and see the hand of God in your own life like never before.
Jonathan Edwards is one of the most respected early American theologians. In Always in God’s Hands, Owen Strachan recovers the real Jonathan Edwards—the thinker, the compassionate father, the courageous reformer—as opposed to the caricature of him that is often presented. Edwards believed God was ever-present in each of our lives, caring and encouraging us in every moment. In a moving letter to his daughter, he reminds her of that comforting truth by describing her as “always in God’s hands.”
Through daily quotes from Edwards’s letters and sermons, this inspirational devotional reveals the soaring theology and comforting spirituality of one of history’s most faithful and gifted pastors. With each meditation, compiler Owen Strachan offers refreshing and relevant insights, encouraging you in your walk with God.
I was excited to see this book available for review — I have read much about Jonathan Edwards, and he is one of the reformers that I wish I could have known.
This book is written in a devotional type of format, and I liked the fact that each reading was easily and quickly read, yet provoked much thought throughout the day. It was easily understood, made me think deeply, and gave me much to muse upon as I went about my daily duties. I read this all through in a couple weeks; I am looking forward to reading it through more slowly, day by day, in 2019.
That being said, I would obviously re-read this book, and I would recommend it to anyone seeking to learn more about Jonathan Edwards, or studying out the Scriptures in attainable portions.
*I received a copy of this book in exchange for a review.
I was not required to leave a favorable review; just an honest one.*
I am a 23 year old young lady who is redeemed and saved from my sin only by the grace of God. A bibliophile at heart with a love of history who desires to see the Word of God practically applied to all aspects of our daily lives -- in our homes, in the grocery store, in the political realm. I strive to put my jumbled, chaotic thoughts down onto paper -- reducing them into black and white rows, letters, sentences. Into some semblance of sanity. And I share them here with all of you, where I can challenge you, make you think, and cause you to ask questions. I am the oldest of eleven children living the country life in the deep south.
