Jonathan Edwards (1703-1758) is American’s greatest theologian and philosopher. One of the key figures in the ‘Great Awakening,’ he entered Yale at twelve and was Head Tutor at twenty-one. Edwards pastored congregations for over 30 years and earned a reputation as a consummate rhetorician and master preacher. Shortly after becoming President of Princeton University he died of complications from a smallpox inoculation. He is buried in Princeton cemetery.

Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God was preached on July 8, 1741 in Enfield, Connecticut. It is considered the most famous sermon ever preached in American history. The vivid imagery Edwards employed made some tremble and cry out for mercy. Others fainted. Five hundred people were converted that day.

The deep intellectual understanding of the human psyche and of biblical content paired with the passion and anointing evident in this sermon makes it clear why this is the most famous sermon ever preached on American soil. The exact content translated to modern American English and delivered under the anointing by a person as passionate about souls as Jonathan Edwards would likely be as effective today as it was nearly 300 years ago.
