Item Description...
Jonathan Edwards is well known as perhaps the greatest theologian the United States has ever produced. He is equally noted for his preaching and writing. But in this Long Line Profile, Dr. Steven J. Lawson considers the unique focus and commitment with which Edwards sought to live out the Christian faith. Lawson examines Edwards' life through the lens of the seventy resolutions he penned in his late teens, shortly after his conversion, which cover everything from glorifying God to repenting of sin to managing time. Drawing on Edwards' writings, as well as scholarly accounts of Edwards' life and thought, Lawson shows how Edwards sought to live out these lofty goals he set for the management of his walk with Christ. In Edwards' example, he finds helpful instruction for all believers.

A Passionate Plea For Genuine Godliness  Feb 11, 2010
This is the second book in The Long Line of Godly Men Profiles series. While the first volume examined the preaching of John Calvin, this book analyses the personal piety of Jonathan Edwards. Its focus is Edwards "passionate pursuit of personal godliness through his resolutions". The famous resolutions, Edwards' "seventy purpose statements for his life", were the building blocks with which he constructed a truly consecrated life. They give us a fascinating and profoundly challenging account of how Princeton's first president sought to discipline himself for the purpose of godliness. The resolutions and their relevance to the question of developing genuine godliness forms the substance of Lawson's book.

In the opening two chapters the reader is given two excellent surveys of Edward's life and his resolutions. In chapter three, the preamble to the resolutions is studied. In Lawson's view the preamble is important for while the resolutions tell us what Edwards purposes, the preamble tells us how he intended to pursue them. In Edwards' mind, the pursuit of holiness meant a healthy distrust of self and an absolute reliance upon God's grace. In chapters 4-9 the resolutions themselves are examined. In each chapter a number of resolutions are grouped together under one subject heading. These themes include such things as Edwards' passion for the glory of God; his pursuit of a disciplined life; and his practice of love towards others.

The chapter on the priority of God's glory is the most important and best in the book. Edwards believed that he was here on this earth, in the famous words of the Shorter Catechism, to glorify God and enjoy Him forever. The resolutions were aids to help him promote the glory of God. Lawson rightly declares that this was Edwards' chief ambition which he relentlessly pursued. It was his life's goal to bring all of his life under the sovereignty of God, purposing to do always those things which most declared the glory of God.

While the chapter on God's glory is the key to the whole book, the chapter on the putting away of sin is the most convicting; the chapter on the passion of discipline is the most challenging, and the chapter on the practice of love is the most revealing.

The life of Jonathan Edwards is one that all Christians should be acquainted with. He speaks loudly and pointedly to all ill-disciplined, lazy, and wordly-wise church. Steve Lawson has done an excellent job in encouraging us to rediscover Edwards' driving passion - soli deo gloria. Living for the glory of God alone. In the preface to the book, the author set himself the goal of challenging 'a new generation of believers to pursue holiness in their daily lives' and to show 'how we must be disciplined in this pursuit'. It was a worthy aim and the book succeeds in meeting it. I warmly recommend this volume.
Resolved, read Unwavering Resolve  Jan 30, 2010
One of the beauties of our faith is that it is not a new one. Though there are situations unique to our time and place we have the great models of the ancient saints from which we can gather guidance on how to both rest in the providence of God, and yet strive with our whole being to overcome sin. The Unwavering Resolve of Jonathan Edwards by Rev. Lawson is an excellent introduction to "America's Greatest Theologian." Focused on the 70 resolutions that Edwards left behind and inter-spaced with support from his diary entries we are given an insightful look into the man. If all you know of Mr. Edwards is the sermon "Sinners in the hands of an angry god" than this is a must read. Rev. Lawson strikes a delicate balance between theological depth and breadth. Way beyond simply background on Jonathan Edwards, Unwavering Resolve teaches the model as exemplified by Mr. Edwards as to living in-between this world and the next. Highly recommended to all reading levels. I pray that all those who would read this book would be encouraged to dedicate themselves to the glory of God. Edwards was a prime example of our greatest happiness found in living fully for the glory of our Lord and Savior.

Make a Decision  Oct 1, 2009
This book on Jonathan Edwards is excellent. It challenges one to make a decision on eternal life issues.
Jonathan Edwards  Aug 17, 2009
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I had not read anything by Edwards or about him and didn't know what to expect. I was amazed to learn that as a young man he made a list of resolutions of how he would live a godly life and he kept record of his progress or lack there of. While this may at first sound kind of legalistic, Edwards entire focus was on glorifying God and acknowledged that any good he does is because of God's work through him. The book gives some biographical information about Edwards and his life of faith. His list of resolutions is convicting and challenging. This is a great book and I highly recommend it.
Resolved  Aug 17, 2009
This book has been another link in the well done research and writing by the reformation trust and their authors. So often when I read of Christian History I get this false impression that things are different now then they were then, pertaining to living a Holy Life that is. This Book was a sobering reminder that while the then and now are seperated by time and cultural trends and what not, the christians duty and goal has remained the same. I knew very little about Edwards and I am sure there is much more to know. However this book gave tremendous insight into the man and his resolutions. It is from his commitment to God first that this man was able to leave such a legacy. Thinking of him and the impression this book left causes scripture such as Romans 12:1-3 to storm through my mind. Not just that though, it reminds me of not just the call and duty of the christian, but the fruit of an obedient life. I was sobered by this reading as well as encouraged and challenged. While the book as a whole, like Edwards life may be seen as a big and grand accomplishment for and among the body of Christ to the glory Christ. For me what this Book showed was how important small decision are. Edwards made lots of them all of the time. I highly recommend this book. It is encouraging, insightful and from me gets 4 out of 4!
