Formed for the Glory of God

Learning from the Spiritual Practices of Jonathan Edwards

by Kyle Strobel

Jesus said we should focus our minds and hearts on God above all else. No small task! Is there some­one we can turn to for help? Wis­dom tells us to sit at the feet of our elders rather than the lat­est min­istry fad,” notes author Kyle Stro­bel. And is there a bet­ter elder to guide us than Jonathan Edwards?

In Edwards, the eigh­teenth-cen­tu­ry Puri­tan pas­tor and the­olo­gian, we find deep thought bal­anced with deep pas­sion. Through his writ­ings and prac­tices, Edwards pro­vides us with the tools — the means of grace” — that make us recep­tive to God’s work in our lives as we learn to abide in Christ. Here we find a well-round­ed account of being formed for the glo­ry of God.

A sober­ing book, a book which focus­es the mind and heart on the means of grace,’ and a book which is prac­ti­cal, it stands recommended.
