The Awesome Work of God
As the Great Awakening was spreading throughout New England, Jonathan Edwards wrote, "When several distinguished pastors and congregations in this region became aware of the wonderful work of God in Northampton, Massachusetts, and surrounding towns, they asked me to inform them of it in greater detail. Being a pastor in Northampton, I am quite familiar with many cases in which God has worked through and among the people during this revival. I hope, through this book, that I can acquaint you with the details of this work, now called the Great Awakening. And so, in as just and faithful a manner as I may, I proceed to show you God's hand in this wonderful work."
This is more than the history of one revival. It is the story about the work of the Holy Spirit upon the hearts and lives of people and it will encourage us to seek the same experience in our own lives and communities.
