Thought provoking and soul-searching. Confronted by her own failures and shortcomings in light of God’s holiness Sarah realized even more God's grace which led to a more complete surrender of herself in thought, word, and daily living. “In Love With Christ,” is a genuine and sweet narrative.

This book was a Christmas gift and I was anxious to begin reading it. I don't know if I'm out of practice with reading Puritan-style writing or what, but I found it a difficult read both for style and content. I'm glad I read it and I learned a lot more about the Edwards family having read it. Honestly, I found some of it to be downright unbelievable and I'm continuing to wrestle with whether that is sinful pride in my own heart, the effects of living in a desensitized society, or both or ...more

Beautiful testimony of one woman's deep intimacy with God through His Word! I never expected such a passionate narrative from Sarah Edwards. She was shown such a glimpse of the love of Christ that she was able to lay aside every fear and worship Him without a thought to her worldly troubles and circumstances! And her troubles and circumstances were so very like my own! I'm sure I will return to this book often during my private prayers, and ask the Lord for a glimpse of His love like Sarah's.

I purchased this book and Marriage to a Difficult Man (by Elisabeth D. Dodds) after Ben Stewart (Breakaway) and a devotional by Mark Batterson (author of All In) both referenced Jonathon Edwards. The book was written in the 1700's. It was very different from most books I've read, not necessarily the easiest book to read, but I'm glad I read it. The story was very interesting, and I found it encouraging (and convicting) to read about the impact a praying wife and mother can have on others.
