The Journal Entries of Jonathan Edwards – Introduction

If you have been reading my blog for a while you know by now that I love Jonathan Edwards (for great reasons)…. However I feel as though I have done you, the reader a disservice. I have made him out to be much more than he really is. Edwards was an ordinary believer, like you or me, with lots of problems and issues. At times he dealt with a lack of trust in God, he often dealt with bouts of depression, and at times he strayed towards legalism.

I hope to correct my overly enthusiastic view of Edwards in this blog by balancing it out with some of his journal entries. Over the next few days/weeks I will post a journal entry and comment on it a bit. In writing this series, my hope is that you enjoy reading about Edwards’ life from his own point of view. And I pray that you are encouraged by the fact that even the great Jonathan Edwards struggled to follow Jesus faithfully.
