God Glorified in Man’s Dependence
By Jonathan Edwards.
God Glorified in the Work of Redemption, by the Greatness of Man's Dependence upon Him in the Whole of It, was preached on the Publick Lecture in Boston, July 8, 1731. (First preached in the fall of 1730 in Northampton.) This Thursday lecture was traditionally held at the First Church of Boston. It was to become Jonathan Edwards' first printed sermon. People are dependent on God because of their insufficiency, helplessness, and sinfulness and this sermon explains how God is glorified by this condition. This edition includes the introductory advertisement by Rev.Thomas Prince (Old South Church) and Rev. William Cooper (Brattle Street Church).
