"When it comes to Jonathan Edwards's writing, where does an average reader (like me!) begin? Right here with The Essential Edwards Collection. Strachan and Sweeney provide a doorway into the life and teaching of one of church's wisest theologians. The authors have included notes of personal application to help us apply the life and teaching of Edwards to our own lives. I've read no better introduction to Jonathan Edwards."
-- C.J. Mahaney, President, Sovereign Grace Ministries
"A great resource! Edwards continues to speak, and this series of books is an excellent means to hear Jonathan Edwards again live and clear. Pure gold; be wise and invest in it!"
-- Josh Moody, Senior Pastor, College Church, Wheaton, Illinois
"These primers on Jonathan Edward's life and thought - his passion for God - provide an excellent glimpse into a life lived unto God. And they help the rest of us slake our thirst for the majesty of our Savior. We owe a great debt to Owen Strachan and Douglas Sweeney for making Edwards and his vision of God so accessible to the rest of us thirsty pilgrims."
-- Thabiti Anyabwile, Pastor, First Baptist Church, Grand Cayman Islands
"Everyone says Jonathan Edwards is important. Quite frankly, however, his writing style is pretty dense by contemporary standards, so few pastors and other Christian leaders have invested much time reading him. This new series tackles the problem. Here is the kernel of much of Edwards's thought in eminently accessible form."
-- D.A. Carson, Research Professor of New Testament, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School
"In The Essential Edwards Collection, Owen Strachan and Doug Sweeney point with knowledge and excitement to clear and searching sections that illuminate God's truth and search our hearts. In this collection, Edwards is introduced to a new generation of readers. His concerns are made our concerns. This is a worthy effort and I pray that God will bless it."
-- Mark Dever, Senior Pastor, Capitol Hill Baptist Church, Washington, D.C.
