Forward by Joel Beeke
The ‘Jonathan Edwards for the Church’ conference met in February 2014 in Durham, England. Not a dry academic, historical conference of little or no relevance to real life, this meeting heard papers that showed the relevance of Edwards for today’s church.
It is not always appreciated that Edwards labored within and for the church. His writings offer tremendous help and encouragement to those who, like Edwards, are called to serve the people of God. One challenge to modern readership is that Edwards’ output is both voluminous and diffuse. ‘Jonathan Edwards for the Church’ has done our generation the invaluable service of compiling and distilling Edwards’ wisdom on the ministry and the means of grace. The essays in this volume will challenge, refresh, and invigorate as they place us at the feet of one who committed his life and energies to the glory of the church’s Head, Jesus Christ.
