Book Review: Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God
Jonathan Edwards? sermon ?Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God? narrated by Max McLean will take your breathe away. This is the pure, unadulterated, hard hitting Truth that, once heard, simply cannot leave you as you were before you heard it.
This sermon is regarded by many as the most famous sermon ever delivered. Written by (or perhaps through) one of the greatest American Theologians. It begins with the Word from Deuteronomy 32:35 ?..their foot shall slide in due time?, and with these words, the Truth is released upon the hearer without restraint.This sermon ends with this warning:
?Therefore, let every one that is out of Christ, now awake and fly from the wrath to come. The wrath of Almighty God is now undoubtedly hanging over a great part of this congregation: Let every one fly out of Sodom: ?aste and escape for your lives, look not behind you, escape to the mountain, lest you be consumed.?
If you are a Christian, take heed that though you may have escaped the fate of the ?sinner? described in this book, there are those in your life that have not. I was moved to pray for those that I love that have not chosen the path of escape freely given and available to all ? salvation by faith in Jesus Christ.
If you are not a Christian, take heed. This book foretells your future.
The text of this sermon is in the public domain and is easily accessible. I recommend reading from the Christian Classic Ethereal Library. This sermon, whether written as shown here or spoken as delivered in this audio book, should be read at least once in your life.
