The End for Which God Created the World (Jonathan Edwards)

$11.99 $10.75

Why did God make the world? Though rarely asked today, the question of why God created the world captured the thought and imagination of Jonathan Edwards, one of history’s most profound thinkers.

Using both reason and Scripture, Edwards determined that God created the world primarily as an arena for his eternal and innate glory to flow outward like a fountain, and for his emanating glory to be received, praised, and enjoyed by the creatures he made. How he arrives at this answer is an amazing, worship-inducing journey.

This version of Edwards’ classic treatise is a modern English paraphrase, designed to allow readers to meditate on the ideas and truths Edwards illuminates, rather than unraveling his long and dense sentences.

Endorsements

“Jonathan Edwards has been limited to droll high school history class readings of Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God. We have missed the depths of his masterful exulting in God’s glory. What Jason Dollar has provided for us, then, is invaluable as to the recovery and promotion of perhaps America’s greatest philosophical thinker. In this book it is as if Jason Dollar has both polished the diamonds and given us the lenses to better behold them. Read, study, enjoy, and worship Christ through this book.” — Jared Wilson, Pastor of Middletown Church and author of Gospel Deeps

“Jonathan Edwards is, without question, one of the great minds of the Christian tradition. Unfortunately, Edwards is often lauded but rarely read, because he is such a difficult read, both in the depth of his thoughts and in archaic writing style. Jason does us a great service, making the first more accessible by updating the second. Reading this classic work allows your affections to the stoked by the Spirit.” — Dr. Kyle Strobel, Assistant Professor of Spiritual Theology and Formation, Talbot School of Theology, Biola University, and author of Formed for the Glory of God: Learning from the Spiritual Practices of Jonathan Edwards
