"[A] massive theological treatise in the form of history," notes Christian History magazine (Vol. 4, No. 4, p. 6). Furthermore, regarding Edwards' work on this book, CH states,
"To prepare himself for the task, he read every historical work he could lay his hands on. He planned to trace the workings of God from Creation to his own day."
Edwards chronicles God's mercy and faithfulness to His Church and the destruction of His enemies. Written from the older postmillennial perspective, useful insights abound. 359 pages.
Chapter three of this book ("The Work of Redemption") is also available on all 30 Reformation Bookshelf CDs (in the "FREE BOOKS" file) at: http://www.swrb.com/Puritan/reformation-bookshelf-CDs.htm (along with 100 other free books and articles on each CD!). This is a most remarkable glimpse into the mind of President Edwards. He boldly proclaims the glorious future of Christ's Kingdom on earth BEFORE the return of Christ.
