Arguably the most significant preacher and theologian in American history, Edwards is notable for playing a pivotal role in shaping the First Great Awakening—a Christian revivalist movement that would change American religion forever. This classic sermon on hell and damnation epitomizes the “fire and brimstone” preaching tactics that would come to be emulated by countless others and secure Edwards’ lasting influence on Western Christendom.

Heaven or Hell?
Christ has thrown the door of mercy wide open, and He stands crying out to all to accept His call. Jonathan Edwards presents a clear picture of the predicament of every sinner and lukewarm Christian. Through his words, you can discover much about what it means to follow God. He shows how you can...
* Know you have God's favor
* Avoid the tricks of the Devil
* Understand more about what sin really is
* Avoid the destruction that awaits sinners
* Realize the need for immediate action
* Be an intercessor
* Find your reward in heaven
With compelling words and imagery, Edwards describes the shaky position of those who do not follow Christ and God's urgent call to receive His love and forgiveness today.
"Whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life."––John 3:16 NIV
Born in East Windsor, Connecticut, in 1703, Edwards was the only son of the Reverend Timothy Edwards and Esther Stoddard Edwards. He was a dedicated student and scholar from his early youth, well before he entered Yale University at the age of thirteen. Despite his scholarly bent, however, he was also philosophical, and he had an appetite for the divine. In 1729, after earning a Master of Divinity from Yale, Edwards succeeded his grandfather, the famed Solomon Stoddard, as full pastor of the First Church of Northampton, Massachusetts. In the twenty four years that he lived in Northampton, Edwards was deeply concerned with the nature of true religion. Edwards was keenly aware of the fact that true religion had to be lived out, and he set forth to transform his congregation, as well as congregations throughout New England, from believers who only understood Christian doctrine to converted Christians who were truly moved by their beliefs.
