Jonathan Edwards took great pains to illustrate how love must be lived out and exercised in one’s life when he exposited I Corinthians 13. Thus Edwards scholar Kyle Strobel has gone to great lengths to help readers understand this classic work of biblical spirituality by providing:
Here is an updated, unabridged, and enlightening version of Jonathan Edwards’s Charity and Its Fruits—the perfect blend of doctrine and application on the all-important topic, Christian love.
Author JONATHAN EDWARDS (1703–1758) was a pastor, theologian, and missionary. He is generally considered the greatest American theologian. A prolific writer, Edwards is known for his many sermons, including "Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God", and his classic Treatise Concerning Religious Affections. Edwards was appointed president of the College of New Jersey (later renamed Princeton University) shortly before his death.
Editor Kyle Strobel (PhD, University of Aberdeen) is the author of Metamorpha: Jesus as a Way of Life and founder of Metamorpha, an online community for Christian spiritual formation. He has served as a fellow at Yale’s Jonathan Edwards Center, has published several academic reviews of works related to Edwards, and has taught graduate courses on Edwards’s spirituality theology.
Endorsements “I am thrilled that Kyle Strobel has edited this new edition of Edwards’s Charity and Its Fruits. This series of sermons holds a special place in my affections for Edwards for three reasons. First, in Munich, Germany, my wife and I read it aloud to each other in 1972. What a way to build a young marriage! Second, Edwards’s treatment of ‘Charity seeketh not her own’ profoundly shaped my emerging Christian Hedonism. Third, the last chapter, ‘Heaven Is a World of Love,’ is simply unsurpassed in its power to make me want to go there. I am unabashed in my love for Jonathan Edwards—and the grandeur of his God. May God give him an ever-wider voice.” - John Piper, Pastor for Preaching and Vision, Bethlehem Baptist Church, Twin Cities, Minnesota
