This compilation of sermons by the great Jonathan Edwards contains fourteen sermons, nine of which have never been published. Years before the Great Awakening, Edwards had been telling children and youth to seek salvation. By the end of his tenure at his church in Northampton, he had delivered thirty sermons addressing children and young adults. Also included is a list of Bible Questions for the Children of Northampton that Edwards expected his young people to know – some of which would prove difficult for today’s seminarians.
