This is a selection of eighteen of Edwards' sermons, most of which were preached in the 1730's and early 1740's during the period of the so-called "Great Awakening", in which his parish of Northampton played a part. The preaching of Edwards, along with that of George Whitefield, was instrumental in the revivalism that took place - emphasizing doctrinal purity, personal holiness, and a great zeal for God.
The sermons of this period are perhaps most signified by an emphasis on man's sinfulness and absolute dependence on God for justification and transformation of the heart. His theology - a mixture of Augustinian, Calvinistic, Platonic ideas - fired in the crucible of the Great Awakening, would only deepen and mature later in his life. However, these sermons, such as Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God (1741), A Divine and Supernatural Light (1734), and God Glorified in Man's Dependence (1731, the first work he published) remain in many ways unique and unparalleled.
