Jonathan Edwards, Evangelist by Dr. John Gerstner
In my opinion, this is the finest treatment of the Puritan doctrine of "seeking salvation" or "preparation for salvation." Edwards did not originate this teaching, but he was a strong and capable advocate of it. Most of the English Puritans taught it, as did Edwards' grandfather, the great Solomon Stoddard, whose book "A Guide To Christ" was called by Dr. Gerstner "a classic."
This teaching was once the heart of Reformed evangelism, but it is largely unknown today, even in Reformed circles. You can find it in Thomas Watson's "Heaven Taken by Storm." Edwards' most well-known sermon on this topic is "Pressing Into the Kingdom."
This book was first published by Westminster Press in 1960, and then again by Soli Deo Gloria in 1995. It has been out of print for some time and we are glad to bring it back. Copies on Amazon and Ebay sell for between $44 and $119.00, even if used.
This 192 page paperback book retails for $15.00. It is yours for $10.00 plus postage. We expect to have it in stock by May 10, 2018.
