The Essential Edwards Collection
On True Christianity
Owen Strachan an Doug Sweeny

This is one of a five-volume set on the life and works of Jonathon Edwards. This particular volume deals with the issue of true Christianity. This volume contains five chapters: 1) The Contemporary Problem of Nominal Christianity, 2) The Problem of Nominal Christianity in Edward’s Day, 3) Edward’s Answer to Nominal Christianity, 4) Powerful examples of True Christianity, and 5) Edward’s Dism

This mini series is a great teaser, an appetizer that makes you want to dig into the actual texts of Jonathan Edwards. There are glories and joys and truths to be drawn out of scripture, and he has the gift of making you see them. You will be drawn in and challenged to enjoy Christ more fully.
Not the best in the series because it had far more of an agenda and less of an honest look at Edwards work and thought. Its a dangerous thing to ask Christians to question other Christian's profession of faith wholesale.

The main argument for the need and emphasis on conversion is what kept it from a lower score.

And dealing with luke-warm Christians is a real concern. But for you? Every layman? Christian leadership? It was a polemic work with a low view of Ecclesiology and true biblical authori
On True Christianity, like the other four in the series, is an accessible introduction to the life and thought of Jonathan Edwards. The strength of this contribution to the series is that it is unbelievably applicable to today's nominally Christian subculture (especially in the South). Strachan and Sweeney draw out some of Edwards' most helpful guidelines for understanding true Christianity. This book is a very helpful tool for any Christian's toolbox in evangelism and devotional life.
A good book that was a quick read. It seemed basic and sound but writing this review several months later I seem unable to remember much specifically. Sorry for an ambiguous review but I suppose it did not impact me greatly. If this was someone's first introduction to Edwards I'm sure it would be much more valuable but I've read some Edwards already.
This book describes how Jonathan Edwards confronted the problem of nominal Christianity in his day and how it cost him dearly. It gives implications of Edwards' teaching for today.
